The event allows students to come together before school and pray. A group of about 30 students, staff and area church leaders gathered in front of Spring Lake High School.
The gatherings are student-led events, but organized by First Priority of the Lakeshore. They were also held at Grand Haven High School and area middle schools.
The Spring Lake High School students divided into grade levels and began in smaller prayer groups. They then joined together as one large group and held hands around the flagpole. Each person took a turn to pray out loud.
Ben Cooley, the youth pastor for First Baptist Church of Spring Lake, said their role is to provide support for students.
“For us, we believe faith is a big part of their life,” he said. “It really is an honor to work with those students.”
