Since word began to spread about the Freedom From Religion Foundation filing a complaint against the Mansfield School District, the community has been in an uproar. In an effort that to preserve the religious freedom exercised within our schools, parent Kandis Howard decided to take action. She and others began organizing a prayer meeting joining forces with area churches.
“This is real and happening at our small school,” said Black. While praying about it last night, I just felt led in my spirit to try organizing a community prayer meeting where parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, kids, neighbors, churches, and any concerned citizens could gather to pray specifically for our school and kids. All I do know is that there is power in prayer! It doesn’t matter what denomination you may be, it’s time for believers of Jesus Christ to join together.”
The community prayer event is set to take place at the Mansfield High School football field on June 27, 7 p.m.
