Community Prayer

Community Prayer

Participants in a community prayer gather in downtown Buena Vista on Sunday, Oct. 6. The event was an initiative of Healthy BV, a group of community leaders who are striving to bring the resources of the city together to improve the quality of life. The service was led by the Rev. Bryon LePere of Buena Vista Baptist Church and Tyson Cooper of Southern Virginia University. There was a scripture reading by Mike Hamilton of First Brethren Church and a closing prayer by Ryan Perry of Parry McCluer High School. Individual prayers were printed on large sheets of paper and displayed in the downtown area. Similar community prayer gatherings are planned for each Sunday at 5 p.m. during October.
