Northwest Ga. church offers drive-thru prayer

Posted:

DALTON, Ga. (AP) - A church in northwest Georgia has started offering prayer services for worshippers on the go.

Members of Cedar Valley Cathedral of Praise on Cleveland Highway in Dalton have started hosting a weekly drive-thru prayer mission Sundays from 2 to 5 p.m.

Anne Keith told the Dalton Daily Citizen (http://bit.ly/18W1bUr ) she's been visiting the drive-thru Sunday service for more than a month now, and it's become something she looks forward to every week.

Church members gather under their building's awning to wait for a driver and distribute prayer cloths to visitors. Members say they welcome visitors from all denominations, and visitors are encouraged to come as they are.

Members of the congregation say they got the idea to start offering drive-thru services from a speaker at the church in late May.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
