On Thursday, Dunkirk and Fredonia churches gathered together at the Chautauqua County Fairgrounds to participate in the National Day of Prayer. This year's theme was reconciliation. Participants prayed for reconciliation with God, reconciliation among the Body of Christ, reconciliation among communities and reconciliation within families.
