TAYLORVILLE — The Taylorville Kiwanis Club honored a “Community Outstanding Spiritual Leader” during the club’s annual prayer luncheon at the Taylorville Moose Lodge on Tuesday.
Kiwanis member and retired minister Dick Wamsley again chaired and was emcee for the annual event, which according to Kiwanis International, is held annually to give primacy to the human and spiritual.
Following introduction of the head table and invited guests, Kiwanis Illinois-Eastern Iowa District Governor Angela Burford spoke about the importance of faith and prayer in her own life after losing a brother recently.
The annual “Community Outstanding Spiritual Leader” award was then given to Dolly Brown, long time member and secretary at Calvary Baptist Church. She was nominated by her Pastor Chad Zueck. Her award was presented by Kiwanis member and Spiritual Aims Committee member Adam Jeffrey.
Guest speaker for the Kiwanis prayer luncheon was Michael Hinnen, Associate Minister at Berlin Christian Church in New Berlin, who spoke about 3 people that mentored him about prayer, adding that, quoting Hinnen, “prayer is communion.”
Pastor Curtis Franks, president of the Taylorville Ministerial Association, closed this year’s Kiwanis prayer luncheon in prayer.
