Connections with Community

  • Pray for the students we support through Compassion International and for our students to grow in their care for all people.

  • Pray that our students would grow in character and compassion as they complete service projects through BCS Serve.

  • Pray that God would grow in each of our students a sense of vocational calling to use their strengths to further the work of God’s kingdom in whatever field of professional work they pursue after school.

  • Pray for our local public schools that we can grow in community together and find ways to serve them and support the Christian community in our public schools.

  • Pray for God to continue to move in the churches and ministries to serve the needs of our community and that we would find deeper ways to partner with them as they do so.
