Thursday, May 2, has been designated as this year’s National Day of Prayer. The theme for this year is Love One Another based on the Bible verse “Love one another, just as I have loved you.” John 13:34
St. John’s Lutheran Church in Kimball would like to invite members of the community to come to St. John’s at any time during the day May 2 to pray. The church will be open from

CHURCH – Pray for pastors and churches to model and exemplify Jesus’ words, Love One Another, to a world that needs the love of Christ desperately.
