Drive-thru prayer service in Joplin


A Joplin church is offering a convenient way for people to cope with emotions surrounding the one year anniversary of Joplin's deadly tornado - a drive thru prayer service.

On Saturday members of the Joplin Family Worship waved signs and invited residents to take part in a healing service from the ease of their own cars.

Church officials say many of those who took advantage were people still struggling after the tornado.

"One of the best ways to relieve your anxiety is to pray or to have somebody pray with you and so it is a drive thru prayer so they don't have to get out, spend a lot of time," says Cindy Wermuth of Joplin Family Worship Center.  "It's kind of being respectful and mindful of all the other events going on in the city while still offering a spiritual solution."
