The Salvation Army of Vicksburg is planning a healing service for the people affected by the historic 2011 Mississippi River flood.

“This is so that we can show our care for each other,” said Cap. Srikent Bhatnagar, director of the local Salvation Army, which has been active in flood relief through a headquarters set up on Washington Street, in the former Blackburn Motor Co. building. “This is for everyone to show the unity in this community.”

The service will be Sunday at 4 p.m. at Triumph Church on Honeysuckle Lane, off North Frontage Road, and it is open to the entire community.

Prayer and singing will make up the majority of the service, Bhatnagar said.
