DULUTH — Jeremy Morton, pastor of First Baptist Church in Woodstock, will be the featured speaker at the annual Legislative Prayer Breakfast Jan. 30 sponsored by Public Affairs of the Georgia Baptist Mission Board.
The event is scheduled to begin at 7 a.m. with a breakfast buffet in the Empire Room on the 20th floor of the James “Sloppy” Floyd building in Atlanta. Morton will speak following music led by Georgia Baptist Music and Worship Ministry catalyst Jon Duncan. It will conclude at or before 8 a.m., giving legislators time to make their way across the street to the state capitol.
The day bookends a busy week for Georgia Baptist Public Affairs, with Pastors Day at the Capitol taking place Monday, Jan. 27. For more information or questions about attending the breakfast, contact Mike Griffin of Georgia Baptist Public Affairs.
Following the prayer breakfast, at 10 a.m. Morton and other pastors will join Griffin, Public Affairs Committee Chairman Brad Hughes, and Georgia Baptist Executive Director W. Thomas Hammond, Jr. in presenting the first-ever Public Service Award to Governor Brian Kemp in the Governor’s Office.
The award, said Griffin, will be presented annually to anyone in Georgia public service as a show of thanks for their work.
