Brown read several bible verses to the people who attended and also talked about the anniversary of 9/11.

The event started with a welcome by Mayor Barry Redfern. There was a responsive song called “My Jesus I Love Thee,” and a few prayers while breakfast was served.

There were prayers dedicated to the local community, city and county governments, medical workers and first responders, education and administrative workers, students, local businesses, owners and local churches.

The breakfast was successful with the help of the 2021 Mayoral Prayer Breakfast committee. Darrin Brumbaugh, Eric Eckert, Dan Goodwin, Zac Holoch, Eric Montgomery, Joe Nissen, Ben Royal and Jim Ulrich were the members this year.
