Join Us for a Prayer Vigil for Those We've Lost to Drugs
Drugs, at an epidemic level in the SW side of Chicago, are causing many of our young people to die from overdoses and other drug-related deaths. We are calling upon the citizens of our communities to join together for a prayer vigil against Drug Addiction. Join us in praying, raising awareness and building solidarity against this horrific plague.
Join pastors and priests from different congregations as we unite to beseech God to help us with this social disease on Saturday, January 7 from 5-6:30 p.m. right here at Calvary Church.
Join us as we pray for:
- The families of those who lost dear loved ones in 2011 due to an overdose
- The agencies, hospitals and organizations that are working to bring treatment to those in need
- The police, EMT, and firefighters who are on the front lines fighting the violence, theft and chaos that results from the addictive lifestyle
- The many ministries that are working to bring spiritual solutions to the needs of those that are victims of this vicious plague
Questions? Call the church office at (708) 429-2200 or contact Pastor Ron Ovitt.
