Day of Prayer brings campus together
Students, faculty, and staff members partnered together in prayer Tuesday, October 8 during Day of Prayer, a special event held twice each year at BBC&S.
The day allowed the campus community to join together, praying for needs on campus, at home, and worldwide. Time off from regular classes allowed students an opportunity to pray, refocus, and fellowship while enjoying the benefits of the beautiful fall weather.
"Prayer is such an important part of our Christian walk," said Liz Cronin, an Early Childhood / Elementary Education major from North Wales, PA. "It's great to see a college take a day to stop, pray, and focus on God."

A Model for Prayer
The day began with students enjoying breakfast together in their residence hall rooms and then meeting in the Recreation Center for an opening with Vice President and Provost Dr. Jim Lytle.
Led by staff and faculty members, student groups moved around the campus to four special stations. Each one explored different aspects of the A.C.T.S prayer model: adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and sanctification. Stations were located in the Jackson Hall Rotunda, the Jackson Hall Tower, Room 140, and the Recreation Center.
"This is a really good opportunity to come together as a student body," said Jenny Thornton, a two-year Early Childhood Education major from Syracuse, NY. "We get to spend time together, pray, and to get to know each other."
Meeting again in the Recreation Center, students enjoyed refreshments and a break time.
The time concluded with a special chapel led by Ken Floyd, a BBC&S Trustee and Executive Director of the Michigan Association of Regular Baptist Churches.
Faculty and staff members gathered together for a light breakfast and prayer in the Murphy Memorial Library.
