"After the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, New Palestine resident Wendy Parish wanted elementary school students to be able to get together in a Christian environment to discuss what happened. 'I asked questions about whether there were any Christian events at the elementary schools,' Parish said, 'but there was nothing. ... So my husband, my two daughters, and I put out a flier inviting everyone in the community to come to a prayer group. Over 100 people showed up for our "Prayer Around the Flagpole" on September 18 that year.' The prayer group, or Christian breakfast club as Parish calls it, became a once-a-month event last year. Parish has increased the frequency to once a week, which is how often it will meet until the end of the school year. ...
"'There are 15 minutes of prayer, worship, and singing,' Parish said. 'Then youth pastors from area churches come in and give a fun message. We usually have around 70 to 80 kids, but we've had more than 100 before. Anyone in the community is invited to attend. ... It's been such a blessing,' she said. 'So many kids who have never been to church before are coming. Many of them tell me that this is their church. That's why we started this.'"
