City of Covington Georgia: A Community On Our Knees


The city of Covington's Community on our Knees makes it one of the best places to visit in GeorgiaThe new school year started off right with the city of Covington’s community coming out and joining together for Covington’s annual Community on Our Knees event.  Fourteen churches and hundreds of people came together for an evening of song, prayer, fellowship and community pride at this thing to do in Georgia.  This was the second annual event, and the hosts are looking forward to continuing this.  There was a prayer wall open all day where visitors could come and write out their prayers on stones. 

The event is inspired by the Toby Mac song “City On Our Knees” and was created to celebrate the new school year and to ask for God’s blessings and protection.  Prayers focused on the city of Covington students, families and teachers, as well as the administrators, bus drivers, janitors, cafeteria workers, board of education members and other school, city and county officials and civil servants.

Claudia Minge, the event’s coordinator, explained the event’s importance: “As we gather representing our different schools, different churches, different families, we will leave as a community united in prayer for each other and for a great school year”
