North Carolina: Churches' Prayer Week Directed Toward AIDS

February 26, 2003

North Carolina's AIDS Leadership Foothills-area Alliance will observe the 14th annual Black Church Week of Prayer for the Healing of AIDS March 2-8. The week of prayer brings national attention to the role black churches are playing in the AIDS crisis. The campaign encourages mobilization and education for AIDS prevention and support programs in the churches. Bari Craig-Tiggett, director of education for ALFA, said this is the third year the alliance has participated in the event. "It's been an awesome event," said Craig-Tiggett, "More and more churches are participating every year." Craig-Tiggett notes that all churches in the area are welcome and encouraged to participate in the event. Ways for churches to participate include delivering sermons next Sunday on HIV/AIDS; providing HIV prevention education and treatment information to the congregation and community; and hosting at least one HIV/AIDS educational program and prayer service during the week. For more information, telephone Bari Craig-Tiggett at 828-326-2384 or ALFA at 828-322-1447.
