Services planned in Carson for National Day of Prayer
On Thursday people around the nation will celebrate the National Day of Prayer.
In Carson City, a prayer breakfast is planned in the morning as well as a prayer service at the Capitol.
Prayer service begins at noon at the Capitol. All are welcome to join in prayer for our families, churches, community, military, the needy, our state, our country and our world.
The First Christian Church worship team will lead the singing and various clergy will pray. Several elected officials also are scheduled to participate.
The prayer breakfast begins at 6:30 a.m. at the Plaza Event Center. It includes a full buffet breakfast and music by the gospel group Shiloh.
Shiloh was founded in 1997 in Carson City. The group’s music is described as Southern Gospel with a country sound. The group believes that “if one line from one song changes one heart, then God gets all of the glory.” The group has produced three CDs with a fourth one in the process.
Current members are Leon Leet on lead guitar and harmony vocals’ Katie Wood as lead female vocalist; Jen Richardson on bass guitar and harmony vocalist; and Ron Smith on rhythm guitar and lead vocal.
Katie and Jen are the two newest members, joining Shiloh in March 2009. Leon is the veteran – a part of the group since 1998.
