“Pause & Pray” on June 8th at 8:46PM

OBJECTIVE: We want to touch God with our individual prayers of petition for the healing of ourselves & our land that has been devastated by the brutal acts of racism & police brutality as evidenced through the killing of Mr. George Floyd and many others. We understand that root of racism, police brutality and social injustice throughout the world is spiritual. While we will continue to protest and participate in the necessary conversations that will lead to change, we will also engage in a spiritual warfare through prayer to “touch God” for healing and deliverance.

PLAN OF ACTION (A): We invite you to join us on the grounds of the New Bethel Church – 745 Walker Avenue, KCK. We will begin to gather in our vehicles at 8:15pm. At exactly 8:46pm, we will turn out all lights (vehicles, phones, flashlights, etc) and pray for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. At the conclusion of the allotted prayer time, we will turn our lights back on as a sign of a new beginning prior to exiting. For those that choose to stay home and participate, we will stream Live on our Facebook Page – NewBethelKC

PLAN OF ACTION (B): One of the members of the New Bethel Church, Martez Gardner, will lead those who would like to meet on the Country Club Plaza. The meeting time and place will be 8:30PM at the J.C. Nichols Memorial Fountain. The prayer will begin at 8:46PM and continue for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. We encourage all those participating to wear masks and be conscious of social distancing.
