‘Unity’ event set for Friday

People from all walks of life are invited to come together for the third “Unity in the Community” at King’s Way Church, 4175 Lexington Road (across from The Castle), beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, April 28. The church service will allow attendees to pray for police officers, other first-responders and their families, with fellowship, sandwiches and soup to follow. Two previous “Unity in the Community” church services, last August and November, were well-attended, organizer Andrea “Bug” Brown said. The lifelong Woodford County resident has appreciated the many different cultures worshipping together at those earlier gatherings. “That’s what this is about – coming together as one community because I’m a firm believer that Heaven won’t be segregated,” said Brown. “And this is all in response to the police officers, our firefighters and first-responders ... They serve us. And they keep us safe and keep us protected. That is crucial – especially with all the racial tension going on in our world.” Brown views “Unity in the Community” as a way to stand up for peace. “I’m so proud of Woodford County because they are completely behind this vision,” she said. Several local businesses, including Graviss McDonald’s Restaurants, Napa Prime, Callie’s Homestyle Restaurant, Madison on Main, Papa John’s, Aaron Smither State Farm Insurance, and Moss Hill Golf Course have been ongoing supporters of “Unity in the Community,” according to Brown. “Without their help,” she said, “we couldn’t do this.”
