“Don’t Stop Praying,” the theme of the annual prayer breakfast of the Interdenominational Missionary Union of Evanston and the North Shore, rang from every corner, said Ella Austin and Janice Lane. The event was held at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, 2201 Foster St., on Oct. 19.

The Missionary Union decided to partner with the H.E. Lane Center for Positive Change. The Lane Center is a faith-based not-for-profit organization that helps men and women re-entering the Evanston community after they have been incarcerated. That decision “recharged the mission’s project,” said Ms. Lane and Ms. Austin.

A fundraiser for the Lane Center will be held at 6 p.m. on Dec. 7 at the Unitarian Church of Evanston, 1330 Ridge Ave.
