August 20, 2023 is
Every Student Sunday
Interested in helping your local church get involved in praying for and supporting post-secondary students?
Whether transitioning from high school to university, experiencing a new country for the first time or preparing for what the next year of school will hold; post-secondary is both an exciting and challenging time for young adults. As such we want to spend time praying for students before classes start in September.
You can host Every Student Sunday at your church on Sunday, August 20. It is a chance for us to join with other Christians across Canada to pray for college and university students, whether they’ve grown up with faith or have never had a chance to hear Jesus’ gospel message before.
Churches coast to coast are participating as we pause at a critical moment to pray for this next generation of students, including the students in your own family or congregation.
By becoming a host you can champion the cause of student ministry in your own community. It’s simple and easy to do. And there’s lots of room to customize it so that it’s a great fit for your congregation.
Equipped with a helpful package of resources we have for you, you can:
- Share a short presentation based on a template during your Sunday service and pray for students together
- Help students in your church make connections with Christian community at their campus
- Pray for students’ prayer requests and needs
Plug-and-play or make lots of customizations to make it your own… it’s up to you! The resource package for you as a host has lots of ideas, but it’s also easy to just follow and implement simply.
Would you help students by mobilizing others to pray at your church as an Every Student Sunday host? Even if Sunday August 20 doesn’t work for you, feel free to pick another Sunday in August or September so we can cover the start of the school year in prayer.
