Prayer Rally for JPS

July 30, 2012

Historic Mount Helm Baptist Church will host a Back-to-School Community Prayer Service for the Jackson Public School District on Monday, August 6 at 6 p.m. in the main sanctuary located at 300 E. Church St., in Jackson, Miss. JPS Superintendent Cedrick Gray will attend and everyone in the community is invited to join the congregation in uplifting students, teachers, parents, staff and administrators for a successful school year.

I beleive it is critical for all of our children to be well-educated so they can become contributing members of society. At Mt. Helm, support for excellent education is one of our core values and we see this time of year as an opportunity to invite everyone in the community to support JPS.

In addition to ongoing prayer, we encourage the gifts of time and other resources, including financial contributions. Those who volunteer as individuals or as part of adopt-a-school programs are to be commended for giving service to the benefit of our children.

Mt. Helm is the oldest African American congregation in Jackson, Mississippi, dating back to 1835. As a flagship church, Mt. Helm exists to demonstrate and provide transformative Christian leadership in our city, our state and our world through the power of the Holy Spirit.
