This July we added a new local mission to the list of wonderful programs we support. First Priority Nashville is a Christian organization that goes into the public schools of our area and sets up student run meetings that bring Jesus into the school. Yes, you read that correctly. First Priority works with students to bring pastors and other communicators who bring the gospel message to students in the Nashville area, on school grounds, during the school week!
Steve Cherrico is the Nashville Director of First Priority and he always keeps me up to date on new students who have just received Christ, the stories behind their conversion, and how First Priority is working to get the student plugged into a local church. I could not be more excited about New Hope’s partnership with this community focused ministry!
This Saturday is our opportunity to join them in this mission, and it comes through intercessory prayer. On the first weekend of August, the State of Tennessee allows churches onto school property to pray over the public schools. For several years First Priority has taken the lead and scheduled church groups to be at as many public school locations as possible.
This year, New Hope has been scheduled at Oliver Middle School and Shayne Elementary School. Our one hour time of prayer will begin at 9:00 AM. Please make plans to join us at the school to pray for God’s hand of blessing, safety, and His presence to be all over the schools of Tennessee. And if you have a New Hope t-shirt, please wear it!
