Apostolic church holds ‘Mom’s Day of Prayer’

-A A +A

The First Apostolic Church of Carrollton will be representing the state of Kentucky for the Worldwide Moms Day of Prayer from 9 a.m. to noon, Jan. 19. All moms in Kentucky and southern Indiana are encouraged to come any time during those hours to pray specifically for our children.

Anyone of all denominations are invited to come and join together for this event. “With the world we live in and the challenges our children face, they need us (moms) to come together and pray for them,” Julia Croucher said. “We are working to help our religious community to come together for our children, no matter what religion they are.” 

The idea came about in the late 1990’s as Kathy Coleman of Fort Smith, Ark., heard of a mother in Brazil having a daily prayer for the children of Brazil. Coleman’s idea became a reality in 1998 when she began a day of prayer for children worldwide.  It has since grown into many churches across the United States.  Further information can be found at www.momsdayofprayer.com.

Registration will begin at 8:30 am. Coffee and donuts will be available and drawings for prizes will be given throughout the event.  For information or flyers please contact Pastor David Croucher or Julia Croucher at (502) 525-7515. The church is located at 111 Third St., Carrollton.

“The wonder-working power of prayer can do more for our children, more for our own lives and more for the world than any other power in the universe. This is not a denomination thing, this is a prayer thing,” according to Moms Day of Prayer.
