Prayer vigil planned for Wednesday

Covenant Community Church in Elba will host a Candlelight Prayer Vigil tonight in memory of the victims and as an encouragement to the communities of yesterday's tragic events in south Coffee and Geneva Counties.  "This is an opportunity for people of faith to come together and offer some small light of hope in the midst of deep despair," said Covenant pastor Mart Gray.

The 30-minute service will take place tonight (Wednesday, March 11) at 8 p.m. at the church which is located at 2267 Hickman Avenue just across the street from Elba City Schools.  Anyone wishing to express their sympathy to and solidarity with our friends in these communities is invited to attend.  Dress is "come as you are."  If you need more information, you may call the church office at 334-897-2288.
