CAMPUS PRAYER WALK EVENT


 

"Let's Pray" has been a focus for our church over this past year. To echo Pastor Gerald's challenge, "Nothing of lasting worth will be accomplished through us apart from a prayerful and earnest dependence on the Lord."

It is with this mindset that we have planned our 2019 Mission Minded Prayer event.  This year, we will be taking prayer outside of the walls of the church and onto various college campuses around Oak Park. Amy & Andy Brandt and Robert Burdett, Calvary missionaries serving with Cru and InterVarsity respectively, will be leading us on a Prayer Walk as part of the Every Campus initiative.

Join us on Saturday, November 9 at 9AM at Calvary.  We will gather together for a light breakfast and an introduction to the morning's activities, and then be sent out to various local college campuses. We will return to the church around 11:15AM for a time of debrief and a pizza lunch.
