In a time of uncertainty, the members of Waxahachie Bible Church are asking the community to join them in a praise ride this Thursday, June 4. The ride will travel to 20 locations scattered throughout the city to offer up prayers for needs and thanks to God for blessings both large and small.
Senior pastor Bruce Zimmerman encourages everyone to take part. The last prayer ride was held on the National Day of Prayer in May and saw 97 vehicles take part.
“We are calling it a praise ride,” he said. “We have got a route that includes a lot of the same places and we are going to be thanking God for what he has been doing in our community during the midst of these times, praising God for his goodness and kindness especially as we start to open up things again.”
Lineup will start at the YMCA at 7:45 p.m., with the praise ride leaving at 8 p.m.
The route includes the Waxahachie Police and Fire stations, the Waxahachie ISD administration building, Waxahachie City Hall, Wayne McCollum Detention Center, the Texas Baptist Home, the Salvation Army, Ellis County Children’s Advocacy Center and Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Waxahachie. The praise ride will conclude at Legend Oaks Healthcare & Rehabilitation.
It is estimated the praise ride will take about 50 minutes.
Zimmerman said the event is needed to let people know the community is thankful for the job they do daily.
“They found it greatly encouraging that people would gather together for that purpose to pray and lift up their needs,” Zimmerman said of the last praise ride. “They also sent in various prayer needs to me and we lifted those up as we went through the city.”
Those unable to attend the event can listen to the broadcast on KBEC 1390AM/99.1FM.
The YMCA is located at 100 YMCA Drive in Waxahachie.
