Moncks Corner Kiwanis will host its annual prayer service at First Baptist Church at 8 a.m. on Thursday, May 1.
The church is located at 112 East Main Street in Moncks Corner. This event is open to the public at no cost.
Past Prayer Services have featured such speakers as baseball great Bobby Richardson, U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, and U.S Rep. Henry Brown.
This year highly decorated disabled veteran Clebe McClary will be the guest speaker. Music will be provided by renowned vocalist Danny Funderburk.
Moncks Corner Kiwanians are proud to have two such highly acclaimed people featured at our Annual Prayer Service.
McClary is an outstanding motivational and inspirational speaker. His message of courage, determination and dedication has made an impact on audiences across the nation.
On March 3,1968 during his 19th reconnaissance mission in Vietnam, Lt. Clebe McClary was critically wounded by an enemy attack. As a result of his bravery under fire and the concern he demonstrated for his men, he was presented the Silver Star and the Bronze Star by the President of the United States.
Although Clebe suffered the loss of an eye, an arm and was told he would never walk again, he never lost the determination, dedication and courage to overcome his circumstances.
One of the most distinctive and beloved voices in all of Gospel music is that of Danny Funderburk.
Over the past 39 years, audiences all around the world have fallen in love with this incredible talent, as he performed with The Singing Americans, Perfect Heart, Mercy’s Way, and most notably, the prestigious Cathedral Quartet.
