Special day has faculty and students serving on, off campus
A special day of service -- both on campus and at locations ranging from downtown Scranton to New York City -- is ahead for faculty, staff, and students at Baptist Bible College.
Each year, BBC cancels classes on Campus Appreciation Day, giving students a day off from classes and an opportunity to serve doing spring cleaning around campus.
This year day on Thursday, April 22, offers students, faculty, and staff opportunities both on and off campus to participate in service projects.
In addition to serving on-campus, over 200 students will be traveling to New York City, Scranton, and Wilkes-Barre to serve in many different capacities. The trips were originally scheduled to take place during February's Missions Conference, VeraCITY, but were postponed due to local snowstorms.
In Manhattan and Queens, students will be ministering through community work and street witnessing, including chalkboard and conversational evangelism.
Students will also be working with rescue missions in downtown Scranton and Wilkes-Barre. They will also be praying through the cities, in the malls, and other highly populated areas.
On campus, faculty, staff and students will work together to spruce the campus as it prepares for
commencement on May 7.
Directed by the BBC Maintenance Department, teams will be working on cleaning and re-mulching flower beds, as well as clearing the roadways and lawns of downed branches.
