Auburn First Baptist Church invites the community to participate in an event dedicating a new peace pole, which will reside in the church’s courtyard located on the corner of East Glenn Avenue and Gay Street. The event will be Sunday, November 6, and will begin with a program including community speakers from various faiths discussing the role of peace in their faith tradition and in the world. The program will also include a video message from Ela Gandhi, South African peace activist and granddaughter of Mahatma Gandhi.

The program and dedication ceremony are open to the public and will feature a custom-built peace pole with the words “May Peace Prevail on Earth” inscribed around the pole in eight languages.

“The congregation of Auburn First Baptist Church is placing this peace pole in the heart of our community to represent our hope and commitment towards peace throughout our world,” said Tripp Martin, pastor. “We welcome our friends and neighbors to gather and pray for peace.” The event begins at 5:00 p.m. in the church’s Fellowship Hall, located at 128 East Glenn Avenue, and the public is welcome.
