 Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast will be held on May 4

 GERING – On April 17, 1952, President Harry Truman signed a bill proclaiming the National Day of Prayer into law.  President Reagan amended the law in 1988, designating the first Thursday of May each year as the National Day of Prayer.  In conjunction with this national event, the Mayors of Gering, Scottsbluff and Terrytown will hold the 2017 Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast on May 4 at 6:45 a.m. at the Gering Civic Center.  This year’s theme isFor Your Great Name’s Sake! Hear Us... Forgive Us...Heal Us!”

The National and local events are designed to encourage united prayer for family, our military, our government, our churches, education, the media and business.  The Guest Speaker this year will be John Girard, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) Representative in western Nebraska.  There will also be scripture readings and prayer for the community. 

Tickets are $7.00 per person and include a breakfast buffet, a Presentation of the Colors, entertainment by Becky Jones from WestWay Christian Church and more.  Tickets should be purchased by May 1 and may not be purchased at the door.

Tickets are available at the Gering Civic Center, the City of Scottsbluff, and some area churches.

Gering Mayor, Tony Kaufman, Terrytown Mayor, Kent Greenwalt and Scottsbluff Mayor, Randy Meininger encourage our communities to join them for the 2017 Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast on May 4.  Please refer questions about the event to City Clerk, Kathy Welfl at (308) 436-6812,


Thank you.
