The event will be hosted by Together for Griffin in conjunction with the New Generation Christian Fellowship Church.
There is no admission fee to the event. However, donations to benefit the Ugandan Children’s Choir will be accepted.
During intermission, elected officials will present the choir with a proclamation from the city of Griffin and Spalding County.
Also during the break, four local pastors will lead participants of the event in prayers.
“We ask the entire community to come and show unity,” said Mamie Harris-Smith, senior pastor at the New Generation Christian Fellowship, adding that prayers will be geared toward recent violence in Griffin. “We want to let (people) know that we are in this together.”
“We’ve got to all come together and take the city back,” said Rhonda Pierce, who helped start Together for Griffin in July 2007 in an effort to gather for prayers, praise and worship.
More than 30 churches are involved in Together for Griffin, and different meetings of the group have drawn as many as 450 attendees.
“With everything that has happened recently, we feel it’s time to call the community together for prayer,” she said.
