CAMDEN — Pastor Greg F. Jackson is inviting the public for a special prayer service on on Sunday, Feb. 26, at 6:30 p.m. at First Southern Baptist Church in Camden.

“A great burden on our heart and many hearts is the drug epidemic, specifically heroin that is taking lives, destroying young people and families, and affecting our community in a great way,” Jackson said.

He has invited Camden Police Chief Matthew Spurlock and Preble County Sheriff Mike Simpson as well.

“Three young men have recently lost their lives to this viper in our community the past few weeks,” Jackson said. “We have to do more than just talk about it and offer condolences. It is time for God’s people to come together and get on our knees before our Maker and petition Him on behalf of our community, families, and law enforcement. If we won’t, who will? Now is the time and we hope you will prayerfully consider bringing your folks to join us.”

Anyone interested can call 937-452-7291 or email Jackson at for additional information.
