NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Testimony is expected to end Thursday in a school prayer lawsuit.
The federal lawsuit was filed by parents who claim that the Wilson County school district is unconstitutionally promoting Christianity by allowing activities by the group Praying Parents.
A member of Praying Parents testified that the group met at a public school during school hours and prayed for students and faculty.
Jennifer Walker said her Christian group had access to the teacher's lounge, provided treats for faculty and distributed fliers about the group for students to take home to their parents.
Walker says she feels it's important to live out her Christian faith both in private and in public.
The case will be decided by U.S. District Judge Robert Echols.
