A Candlelight prayer vigil for Mayor David McCullough has been scheduled for Monday, February 20, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. on the Cheatham County Courthouse lawn.  It has been requested to bring candles for the vigil.

Once more a small town is planning to come together, gathering on the Cheatham County Courthouse lawn, to pray for our friend and county mayor, David McCullough, as he once more battles cancer.

Mayor McCullough was previously diagnosed with cancer in July of 2015, after successful treatment and surgery, he return to his life cancer free.  In September of this past year, in 2016, test results proved he was still free of the disease. His family, friends and county celebrated this milestone.

On Monday, February 13, Mayor McCullough’s wife, Megan Spruill McCullough, shared the following on Facebook:

“In David’s words, We have bad news but we have a good God who will see us through. Cancer has returned and it is very aggressive. There are no surgical or treatment options available. I love you all so very much and I’m thankful for what you mean to me and my family. Your prayers are very much appreciated.”– Megan Spruill Mccullough 

Since then Facebook has been inundated with prayer request, encouraging words, hope, faith and words of comfort.  It’s obvious Mayor McCullough is supported, loved and admired not only as Cheatham County’s Mayor but also as a husband, father, grandfather, singer, pastor, leader, scholar, friend, neighbor, son and so, so much more.  

As he and his family face uncertainty they are trusting God sees tomorrow better than we are able to see today and His plans are far better than we are able to comprehend or understand in current circumstances.  

There is power in prayer, miracles possible, please join in the candlelight vigil tomorrow, Monday, February 20, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. on the courthouse lawn in Cheatham County.

The following was shared by Megan McCullough on Facebook just yesterday, February 18, 2017 from Vanderbilt Hospital:

“Here I am on my morning walk – which is in a recliner by his bed – gazing at the beautiful sky. I don’t know what the future holds, both near and far, but I do know God is already there. This morning I’m thanking Him for all of you. You, our friends who are praying, caring, loving, offering, crying, and standing in the gap in so many ways. Please know you are loved,”  – Megan McCullough, Saturday February 18, 2017 at 6:24am · Nashville

Once more let’s come together to show our love and support for Mayor David McCullough and his family just as they have freely and openly shared their love and support for Cheatham County’s families and friends.

      “For where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am among them.”          Matthew 18:20
