LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—Love Life International Ministries has planned and hosted this event for three years.
Different churches walk the community from Rheile Plaza all the way to Columbian Park where, with the help of Walmart and Meijer providing the food and community members helping, they host a community barbecue.
The goal of this walk is to bring people in the community together.
First Lady of Love Life International, Nikia Washington-Fowler, said this is what the community needs.
"It's not about denomination, color, race or any of that," said Washington-Fowler. "It's about coming together collectively to pray for our city, because we want to change here and we need it immediately."
Other local churches were in attendance showing support.
Pastor of Lafayette Community Church Jeff Mikels said the goal of this outreach isn't to shame people, it is to bring everyone together.
"We're not alone," said Mikels. "We're not alone we are surrounded by other churches. We are surrounded by other people who share the same convictions. We are also surrounded by people who are willing to put their hands and their feet towards something to make our community better."
