Local Mamas: Pray & Play

Be sure to join us May 30th at 10:00am at The Bridge for a fun morning of prayer and play time! We will begin our time with a fun prayer walk through the Northside and then close it out at the brand new playground at The Bridge for some fun playtime.

The Bridge is a community ministry center of First Baptist Spartanburg at the former Green St. Baptist Church located at 317 Green St. It is open to serve those in need through financial support, clothing and food ministries. There are also children’s programs and a bike program. It’s such a fun and exciting place to be!

Our desire is that this time will help you and your little ones to be intentional in all you do whether it’s playing or praying. It’s also just a lot more fun to serve with other mamas and their littles!

There is no cost to attend; however, we do ask that you bring a few canned items for us to donate to The Bridge. Also, be sure to wear some good walking shoes, grab your stroller, water bottles, and some sunscreen. Be sure to sign up at our Event Page and let us know that you are coming.

Pray & Play

Our first Pray & Play was so very fun and simple – pray then play!

While the weather didn’t quite cooperate with us, we just went with Plan B and “prayer walked inside”. Our town has the coolest lightbulb sculptures all over the downtown area, so for our prayer time, we “found” pics of the lightbulbs hidden all throughout the play area and paused for a moment to pray at each picture. Each mama was given prayer points to guide their prayers and to remind us of different ways we could pray for our city. Plan A was to find the real lightbulbs outside and enjoy prayer walking outside – oh South Carolina weather…

Then we had a little snack time and enjoyed playing together!

And while it was “simple” and fun, I also believe that it is very important and foundational to raising little ones to love Jesus and love others. Our littles learn to pray for and love their community when they see us as mamas (and daddy’s) praying and loving our community and that starts at any age!

How are you praying for your community? Are you leading your little ones to pray for your community? For your mayor, for your city council? For the helping agencies and the homeless? For the college students and the international students? For the churches and the pastors? So much we can pray for!

If you are local, I hope that you will join us at our next Pray & Play. If you’re not, why not start your own group? Find a great park or local area to prayerwalk, invite a few friends to join you, and have fun with your littles!
