Every year the Northwestern College staff, faculty and students alike take a day off from regularly scheduled classes and activity to pause for a time of prayer and service in the community.
The Day of Prayer & Service is Northwestern's way of looking past our gates and into the world beyond. Our commitment to God and His world forms the foundation of our community. On the Day of Prayer & Service we celebrate the things we love most, connecting to God through prayer and connecting to the world through service.
The 2009 Day of Prayer & Service is Thursday, April 30. Over the course of the day, from 8 a.m.–8 p.m., a "prayer room" will be occupied on a drop-in basis. The Day will begin with a campus-wide worship service from 10–10:45 a.m. followed by a picnic lunch.
Then, starting at 12 p.m., staff, faculty and students will be bused to different service sites all over the Twin Cities, and will participate in various forms of work for those who need it. New this year is the option for participants to stay on campus and pack food to send to Haiti.
