Wellsburg community particpates in National Day or Prayer


May 2 marked National Day of Prayer across the county.

It’s day when Americans are asked to set aside their differences and ask a higher power for help.

Wellsburg kicked off Thursday with a free breakfast and lecture at the Wellsburg United Methodist Church. Speaker Reverend Sherri Schafer spoke of fellowship and reflected on patriotism.

The event was a presented by the Wellsburg Kiwanis Club and the Wellsburg Mayor’s Office.

There was an additional service at Wheeling’s independence hall at 6:30 p.m.

7News’ own Emily Goodman was in attendance to offer a prayer for the media.

“I did pray for the media to be fair and honest and true in what they speak because I feel like we have a platform and we are able to give the people the truth that we speak, and I think we do a good job of that here at 7news,” said Goodman.
