Rock County Christian School Celebrates the National Day of Praye
BELOIT – On Thursday, May 3, 2011, Rock County Christian School will once again commemorate the National Day of Prayer by holding a special prayer service at the Horace White Park in Beloit. In case of rain, the event will be held in the Rock County Christian School gymnasium located at 916 Bushnell Street. RCCS would like to invite all who wish to pray for our nation to join our students as we take time to remember our nation and its leaders.
Wisconsin Department Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen will be our keynote speaker. “As attorney for the State of Wisconsin, its officers and agencies, General Van Hollen has emphasized integrity and adherence to the rule of law. During a time when partisan politics has increasingly polarized the people of Wisconsin, Van Hollen has kept focused on enforcing and following the laws as written without regard to the underlying political and public policy debates. restored an emphasis on the rule of law to the Department of Justice. Professionally-reasoned legal advice and client representation is now a hallmark of the Department’s work.” (Attorney General’s Website)
We are also honored to have other guests such as State Representatives Amy Loudenbeck and Joe Knilans along with newly-elected Beloit School Board Member Mark Rand. Pastor Ken Hereford of the Grace and Truth Church (Beloit) will deliver a short challenge following General Van Hollen. Music will be led by the Rock County Christian School praise and worship team.
At the conclusion of the service, everyone is invited to join us in a time of prayer led by students from Beloit College.
Event organizer Kevin Thompson notes, “In a time where our state could not be more divided, we need an event like this to refocus our priorities and join together in prayer as we seek to heal the wounds of a fractured political system. Our only hope is found in the Lord.
According to the National Day of Prayer website (www.nationaldayofprayer.com), “The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman
