Students organize 24-hour worship marathon

Grove City College students will begin a marathon 24-Hour Worship event at 9 p.m. tonight in Harbison Chapel. The student-led service will run until 9 p.m. Wednesday and feature about 40 worship leaders and music.

“This is important because at the very core of who we are we were created for worship. The event creates an environment for all to come and enter into the presence of God; worshipping Him in spirit and truth,” Adam Bannister ’20 said. He and his sister Brooke Bannister ’22 will be among the student worship leaders.

The Bannisters, Amanda Mittelman ‘20, Peter Stauffer ’21 and Giovanna Johnson ’22 put the event together, independent of any campus ministry. They are inspired by a shared desire for worship.

24-Hour Worship is free and open to the public. The organizers encourage members of the campus community to join them.

“Our hope is that this event will encourage everyone on campus to worship God more throughout each day, acknowledging that every moment and aspect of our lives is a time to give Him the praise He is due,” Adam Bannister said. He and his sister said they personally hope to see friends come to the event so they can know Jesus.

Student Mission Fellowship will be hosting a prayer station in the prayer room of Harbison Chapel during 24-Hour Worship as a lead up for the nationwide Collegiate Day of Prayer, which is set for Thursday, Feb. 27.
