The One Sumter Community group takes this opportunity to thank the Sumter community for their support on our fifth-annual Unity Prayer Breakfast held on Saturday, Aug. 3, 2019, at Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church Enrichment Center, located at 325 Fulton St. in the city of Sumter.

If you were there, we thank you. If you missed it, there are no words we can use to describe what we experienced except "Spiritual ecstasy"! In other words, we were out of sight and out of mind on Saturday, Aug. 3.

We want to thank our presider, the Rev. Linda Speed, the pastor of Kingdom Impact Worship Center, for doing an excellent job.

We want to thank the following persons for their participation: the Rev. Cheryl Johnson, pastor of St. James UM Church; Josephine Young, Turkey Creek neighborhood; Lorraine W. Dennis, assistant county administrator; Debra Canty, president of Sumter Chapter Federation of the Blind; Serena Canty-McCoy, Sumter School District; Lisa Beharry, Sumter County Solicitor's Office; Kimberly Johnson, United States Army veteran; Minister Maria Newton-Tabon, Jehovah Missionary Baptist Church; and Talitha Harrison, victim advocate, Sumter County Solicitor's Office.

We would like to thank Gary and Green Ensemble for the music.

One last note - there were more than 200 persons in attendance. The adviser board along with the chairperson, many thanks to the community of Sumter answering "A Call to Unite." Thanks for your support.

Remember, we meet every second Sunday at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, 325 Fulton St., at 6:30 p.m.
