City Seeking Clergy Volunteers to Give Invocations When Chaplain Unavailable
Those Serving Lake Wales Area Congregations Can Add Names to Rotation List
Last updated 10/7/2020 at 4:13pm
Clergy or religious leaders in the greater Lake Wales area can now volunteer to give the invocation prior to a city commission meeting.
City Clerk Jennifer Nanek is compiling a list of volunteers with congregations in one of the three Lake Wales zip code areas – 33853, 33898 and 33859.
The city commission recently appointed Dr. James Moyer as its official chaplain. Clergy volunteers on the city's list will be called on a first come, first serve basis to give the invocation when the city chaplain is unavailable.
Contact Nanek at 863-678-4182, ext. 270 or email [email protected] if you would like to be added to the congregations list.
The city asks that invocations should "solemnize the proceedings and not be used to convert or disparage others."
