INVITATION TO OFFER INVOCATION
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN It is the policy of the assembly to allow for an invocation, which may include a short prayer or a solemnizing message, to be offered at the beginning of its meetings for the benefit of the assembly to accommodate the spiritual needs of the public officials.
All religious associations with an established presence in the Kenai Peninsula Borough that regularly meet for the primary purpose of sharing a religious perspective, or chaplains who may serve one of more of the fire departments, law enforcement agencies, hospitals, or other similar organizations in the borough, are eligible to provide invocations to the assembly, and the authorized leader of any such association or chaplain can make an online submission to provide an invocation to the borough clerk.
If approved, the respondents to this notice shall be scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis to deliver the invocation, provided each respondent may only ask to provide one invocation at a time, with subsequent requests only made after the date of the previously scheduled invocation has passed.
The Assembly requests by the language of its policy that no invocation should proselytize or advance any faith, or disparage the religious faith or non-religious views of others.
Please read the KPB Assembly Invocation Policy for additional information.
