Event invites community to pray together
pray turlock
The ‘Pray Turlock’ signs posted around town are an invitation to a community prayer event being hosted by Calvary Chapel on Oct. 22 (KRISTINA HACKER/The Journal).

Amongst the campaign messages that have sprung up on fences and fields around Turlock is a sign that simply states “Pray Turlock.” And that is exactly what Pastor Rob Monroe is encouraging the citizens of Turlock to do together at 6 p.m. Oct. 22.

“We are looking to just call the churches and Christians of Turlock together to pray for our nation, our state, our community,” said Monroe about the event.

This will be the third annual Pray Turlock event hosted by Calvary Chapel Turlock, located at 147 S. Broadway (across from City Hall).

At this community event, Calvary Chapel is rallying the community to come together for a night of prayer and praise. The street will be closed and attendees are invited to bring their own chairs for comfort. Six pastors from different churches across Turlock will lead those gathered in prayer. Monroe said in between prayers, there will be a choir and worship music.

Monroe said this is the perfect time to hold this community-wide prayer session.

“We felt like the churches of Turlock needed to come together in unity to really seek the Lord and pray and get excited about praying for our nation and community before the elections,” he said. “When the election season is here, people have an awareness that decisions are being made that effect the direction of our society.”
