The Kentucky Council of Churches presents their annual Prayer in Action Days!

Their annual Prayer in Action Days will kick-off February 2nd. This year will be a bit different since we cannot be at the Capitol but you can still participate by tuning into our Facebook Live sessions. Each session will be held via Zoom and streamed on our Facebook page so that you may watch it at the time it is happening or come back to it at a later time. The kick-off event will begin at 11 a.m. Tuesday, February 2nd.

Go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/kycouncilofchurches to see each session. If you are not a member of our KCC Facebook group, just request to be a member in advance of the Prayer in Action Days. 

“We will pray for our governor and legislators and call them to a higher moral agenda that puts the well-being of Kentucky’s people first.” said Rev. Dr. Donald K. Gillett, II, Executive Director of the Council.  Each event will include prayer, education on issues, and a call to action. “We want to engage religious leaders and their congregants in direct justice advocacy.” Prayer in Action Days are inspired by Moral Mondays in North Carolina, where religious leaders created significant change in policies that oppressed the poor and people of color.
 
The Kentucky Council of Churches chose these issues based on policy statements approved by all eleven of the Council’s denominational members (to look at our policy statements, click here)The membership includes Protestant and Roman Catholic congregations. The Council works with other state advocacy groups and coalitions on issues, and many of them have committed to support the Prayer in Action Days.
 
All Prayer in Action events are interfaith and open to the public and media. For more information contact the Kentucky Council of Churches at KCC@kycouncilofchurches.org, 859-269-7715, or visit our website: www.kycouncilofchurches.org.
