As the City of Compton (CA) comes to the end of its election season, the Christian Clergy United Network Action Team (CCUNAT) is calling on the community and city leaders to come out and join in a prayer vigil taking place at Compton’s City Hall at The Quad, on Saturday, April 27, 2013 at 12 Noon. Preceding the vigil will be a Communion Service and Open Enrollment – held the night before on Friday at 7PM – at Holy Chapel Missionary Baptist Church located at 1016 E. Rosecrans in Compton where CCUNAT Founder and President George Thomas is Pastor.
The two-day event will be attended by clergy of various denominations, city leaders and dignitaries, and is supported by California’s 44th District representative, Congresswoman Janice Hahn. Compton is included in her district. Annette McDonald – Hahn’s Faith-Based Liaison – will be one of the speakers on both days.
Says Pastor Thomas, “We’re Christians on Sunday…but this is about Christian orientation with respect to people supporting public policy. People say they are Christians, but so often it doesn’t show in their actions…it needs to be demonstrated in character. Policies need to line up with Christian values.” CCUNAT (enunciated koo-nat) is not a political organization, and under its auspices does not intend to become political. The membership prerequisite is to be Christian. Part of their agenda is to help spiritualize politicians through prayer and fellowship. Pastor Thomas adds, “We want to diffuse the [negative] stigma of Compton that is so often reported in the media”.
City Hall Plaza at The Quad is located at 205 S. Willowbrook Ave. in Compton. For further details about the Friday and Saturday events please contact CCUNAT at (310) 537-3149, or visit the Holy Chapel website at www.holychapelbc.com
