Spring Lake church members take prayer to the streets

Fifteen people gathered Thursday evening at Spring Lake Christian Reformed Church, said a prayer, then disbursed into the surrounding neighborhood. The Community Unity Prayer Walk was organized by church member Carol Van Dop. She led a group of four east down the south side of Fall Street, while another group of women prayed down the north side of the street. The church's pastor, the Rev. Drew Sweetman, led a group north on Lake Avenue. A third group of women took off in a car to pray farther away.
