County prayer vigil, tonight

The community is invited to come out and pray.

The Stephens County Board of Commissioners is sponsoring a community prayer vigil today at 6 p.m., held on Sage Street, in Toccoa.

Stephens County Commission Chari Dennis Bell called for the event earlier last month in light of events that have taken place across the nation.

Tonight, Stephens County residents will join with local pastors in the prayer vigil in downtown Toccoa for the nation and for the community.

The prayer vigil is to create “unity in the community,” which doubles as the title of the event.

The entire community is invited to stand together and pray.
