The Gahanna Christian Ministerial Association will sponsor a community National Day of Prayer service from 7 to 7:45 p.m. Thursday, May 7, at the Creekside Stage.

Community members are invited to gather in prayer for government leaders, military personnel, community, schools and families.

An offering will be collected for the Gahanna Free Summer Lunch Club. Each summer, many children experience a nutrition gap. The number of children who qualify for free and reduced meals in the Gahanna schools has increased by 50 percent in the last five years.

Through the efforts of local churches and businesses, the club served more than 1,400 meals last year.

For more information on the Gahanna Free Summer Lunch Club, contact your local church or the Bridge of Gahanna at 337-9200 or thegahannabridge@gmail.com.
