Bethel Presbyterian holds ‘Drive-Through Prayer’

May 26. Bethel Presbyterian Church will hold “Drive-Through Prayer” at the church located at 19920 Bethel Church Road on May 26 and 28 and June 2 and 4. Two sessions each day are scheduled: 11:30 until 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. until 6 p.m.

“Drive-through prayer offers a unique opportunity for people in our community to connect with God in an intentional way during this crisis,” said Rev. Dr. Tom LaBonte, Assistant Pastor at Bethel Presbyterian Church. Click here for a video from Bethel Presbyterian.

Church pastors and leadership will be available to pray with anyone who seeks comfort through one-on-one prayer. A prayer board is available near the cross in front of the church to accept prayer requests at any time.

“We as a church are called to bear each other’s burdens, and praying with our neighbors is a powerful way we can help each other and show Jesus’ love in challenging times,” said Rev. LaBonte.

“In scripture and psalm we are told to bring everything to God in prayer. We are honored to pray with our friends and neighbors. Any prayer requests are welcome, including prayers of healing, praise, intercession and thanksgiving. We will wear masks and practice social distancing,” he said.

Each prayer will be commemorated with a ribbon being placed on the cross in front of the church.

Founded in 1828, Bethel Presbyterian Church is part of the ECO denomination of Presbyterian churches.
