Drive-through prayer service set up in Penn Hills

PENN HILLS, Pa. —

Parishioners who didn’t have time to go to church on Friday opted for a drive-through for prayers in Penn Hills.

Laketon United Methodist Church set up a temporary drive-through.

“My daughter is sick, and I saw this.  I think it’s a wonderful idea,” said a parishioner.

Pastor J. Lavon Kincaid came up with the idea after hearing people say they couldn’t make it to church on Friday.

“Many people have to work and don’t have time to go for a formal worship service, and the idea came to me – bring the church outside and have prayers in the parking lot,” he said.

This marks the third year of parking lot prayers.

“It can help people who may not be able to come on Sunday.  Maybe they need one prayer to help them through the week,” said volunteer Arnita Thompson.
