Georgia church offers drive-thru prayer

DALTON, Ga. - A church in northwest Georgia has started offering Sunday prayer services for worshippers on the go.

Members of the Cedar Valley Cathedral of Praise on Cleveland Highway in Dalton have been hosting a weekly drive-thru prayer mission Sundays from 2 to 5 p.m. Anne Keith told the Dalton Daily Citizen she's been visiting the drive-thru Sunday service for more than a month now, and it's become something she looks forward to every week.

"I start on Wednesday thinking, 'It's three more days,' then 'two more days,'" Keith said. She added that she finds the service uplifting and that it reinforces her hope.

Church members gather under their building's awning to wait for a driver and distribute prayer cloths to visitors. Members say they welcome visitors from all denominations, and visitors are encouraged to come as they are.

"God's brought a good number of people every Sunday," Barry Suggs told the newspaper. "Seventeen have prayed prayers for salvation."

Members of the congregation said they got the idea to start offering drive-thru services from a speaker at the church in late May.
