2016 Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast        

In 1995, Mayor Don Gronewold and Bob Summers decided that Washington should have its own Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast. Twenty-two years later, Mayor Gary Manier and the Washington Chamber of Commerce carry on that tradition. On Thursday, November 17, 2016, the community was invited to attend the twenty-second Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast at Countryside Banquet Facility. This has always been an event where our community comes together on a yearly basis to celebrate God’s grace for each of us and, in turn, to support the leadership of our community.

This year, Pastor Tom Zobrist, Senior Pastor of Liberty Bible Church in Eureka, was invited to be the guest speaker. Pastor Zobrist and his wife, Cindi, have been ministering at Liberty Bible Church since August of 1988. Pastor Zobrist spoke to the audience about “Compelling Leadership” based on the example of Nehemiah.

Thank you to the 2016 Platinum sponsors: South Side Bank and Uftring Chevy of Washington; as well as the Gold sponsors: Alexander-Murray Agency, Deiters Funeral Home & Crematory, McDonald’s, and Peoria Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The general public was invited to attend this yearly inspirational morning of prayer and encouragement. Buffet breakfast was catered by Countryside Banquet Facility.
