What are you doing for breakfast Wednesday? The Gold Country Ministerial Association plans to serve up some spirituality along with their bacon and eggs during the 2010 Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast, which will be held 7-8:30 a.m. Wednesday at Bell Road Baptist Church in Auburn. The purpose of the annual breakfast is to pray for Auburn and Colfax mayors, city and county officials, law enforcement, first responders, military and school personnel, said Nick Vogt with the Gold Country Ministerial Association. “The Bible says to pray for our leaders and those who serve for us,” he said. “It’s just a time when everybody can get together, recognizing our community leaders and backing them up.” Vogt said Auburn’s first Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast took place Dec. 5, 1969. Area pastors will each take a few minutes to offer prayers for various people and groups within the community. “I think it’s very profitable for us to do that,” Vogt said. “I haven’t met too may people who don’t appreciate prayer, especially when they’re making tough decisions.” Ken Campbell is slated to be a guest speaker Wednesday. Campbell recently served a five-year term as chairman of the Placer County Republican Committee, and holds various positions within the secular and spiritual communities. “I’m really looking forward to hearing his testimony and what he has to share,” said Pastor Rob Patterson of Bell Road Baptist Church. __________ Know and go What: 2010 Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast When: 7-8:30 a.m. Wednesday, April 28 Where: Bell Road Baptist Church, 707 Bell Road, Auburn Cost: $10; tickets available at the door starting at 6:30 a.m. Information: (530) 878-0697
