5th Grader Holds Three Prayer Club Meetings at School

Really encouraging news for our fifth-grade client, Laura. She has now held three prayer club meetings at her elementary school—and they’ve been a huge success!

Anywhere from 25 to 30 students attended each, which is an incredible turnout for an elementary club meeting on Monday mornings.

Praise God for answered prayers!

Here’s a quick update from attorney Kayla Toney. She shares how the first meeting went and how First Liberty was able to make sure Laura could live out her faith:

Last month, the Issaquah School District announced it would allow Laura and other students to start an interfaith prayer club. The school previously denied the fifth grader’s request, even though it promoted more than a dozen non-religious clubs. Just two weeks after First Liberty attorneys sent a letter explaining how the First Amendment applies, the school district changed course.

“We are very pleased that the Issaquah School District is allowing our clients to start a prayer club at their school this spring,” said Toney. “Religious discrimination is not only against the law; it is especially harmful against young children.”

What a tremendous and encouraging victory for this young student.

Laura has said prayer is incredibly important to her. She says the prayer club will help her friends from many different faiths who feel marginalized. She wanted to make sure students like her could have a place at school where they feel safe and welcome.

This is a great example of the impact of our Supreme Court victory in the Coach Kennedy case. It’s a reminder that people of faith, including elementary school students, have a constitutional right to express their religious beliefs and pray, even in a public school setting.

A Washington state elementary student is rejoicing after successfully battling her school to establish an interfaith prayer club.

Laura, a 5th-grade student at Creekside Elementary, was first turned down when she attempted to form a prayer group that included all students.

Laura, however, was victorious thanks to the First Liberty Institute, a nonprofit Christian organization.

Laura and her mother allegedly visited with Creekside’s principal in February.

The principal indicated that all funds for school clubs had been allocated back in October.

However, a Pride club was allegedly launched barely a week before the meetings.

First Liberty attorney Kayla Toney said that the school’s decision to prohibit the club was a violation of the Constitution and that school officials were enging in religious discrimination.

Toney praised Laura’s tenacity in fighting for religious liberty at her school, calling it an honor to stand beside her.

Laura anticipates a big turnout for her inaugural interfaith prayer group meeting, and a number of students have already expressed interest in joining the club.
