Soddy-Daisy/Loftis Area Plans Prayer Dinner Sunday

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Fifteen area churches of various denominations have signed onto a voluntary iniative to rally around a special opportunity to invest in their community. 

The Soddy Daisy/Loftis Gathering, on Sunday from 6-7:30 p.m., in the Loftis Middle School gym, will serve to encourage prayer on behalf of the students and teachers of Soddy Daisy and Loftis Middle  Schools and build community-based support for funding Bible history classes at Soddy Daisy and Loftis Middle Schools. 

Members of churches and others across the Soddy Daisy and Loftis communities are invited to gather at the Loftis Middle School gym for a meal, time of prayer, and a show of support for public school students. Soddy Daisy Middle School has been blessed to have Bible history since 2000 and Loftis Middle School began Bible history in 1996. Soddy Daisy High School had Bible history for many years. It was discontinued this year due to a lack of funds. As the Soddy Daisy/Loftis community begins to fund Bible history teachers, money will be available to place teachers in other schools where Bible history is not taught. 

The dinner is complimentary. A special program for children, grades K-5, will be provided by New Salem Baptist Church at the conclusion of dinner.

Reservations are required by calling one of the participating churches or by contacting Bible in the Schools at 648-0500 or maryjane@bibleintheschools.com. 

Churches participating are: Bethel Temple Assembly of God, Calvary Chapel Hixson, Christ Family Cnurch, Cross of Calvary Assembly of God, Daisy United Methodist, Dallas Bay Baptist, Falling Water Baptist, First Baptist of Soddy-Daisy, Freedom Worship Center, Grace United Methodist, Middle Valley Church of God, New Salem Baptist, Oak Street Baptist, Rechoboth Baptist, and Stuart Heights Baptist  (Soddy-Daisy campus)

In the Navy SEALS, there are two ways you should ever do a task: “The right way” and “Again.” We as a society admit failure when we take the much-besmirched path of “the lesser of two evils” because the destination will always be “wrong.” It’s true: ‘start wrong-end wrong’ happens every time. Evil, no matter to what degree, is always wrong and when the Hamilton County School Board ... (click for more)
