TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The GFWC’s Sisters of Service Woman’s Club, Inc. hosted a virtual back to school prayer on Saturday.

Members of the organization prayed for all students, teachers, staff, and administrators in hopes to ease the anxiety of back to school.

The ladies prayed that no harm is brought to anyone during the upcoming school years.

“Be with the students that are facing a new year ahead. Be with those that are struggling now during this time of pandemic. Be with our teachers and our faculty as they prepare to teach during these challenging times. Lord of all give us courage give us strength and give us wisdom and most of all give us love,” said Lauren Spivey Levwood during the prayer.

Leon, Jefferson, and Gadsden County students head back to classroom on Monday August 31st.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - As schools in Leon County and surrounding communities prepare to start a new school year, GFWC sisters of Service Woman’s Club, Inc. are asking women around the community to join in a back to school prayer for students, teachers, administrators and staff.

We spoke to the president of the organization, Vaness J. Moore, who says the goal is to bring together everyone affected by the pandemic.

“Everybody is affected by this pandemic in some type of way,” Moore said. “And you know the parents have been tossing this idea around of not sending their children back to school through the brick-and-mortar process because it’s a fear of what’s going on.”

Moore says she hopes to ease the anxiety resulting from the pandemic by coming together.

The event will be held at 5 pm Saturday through Zoom and Facebook live.
