Sunrise service opens Spring 2020 semester
Hands reached heavenward in a standing-room-only crowd in the Center for Music and the Worship Arts’ Concert Hall on Monday morning as Liberty University students blended their voices in praise to the Lord during an impromptu 7 a.m. sunrise service.
“This is a time for us to come together as God’s children to worship Him and make much of Him through singing,” said David Nasser, Senior Vice President for Spiritual Development.
The service consisted of seven songs led by Liberty’s Worship Collective. Nasser offered several moments for students to step to a microphone to pray before he prayed over the school’s student body.
“In the middle of a storm, we have to anchor down in your truths, God,” Nasser prayed. “You are bigger than the storms around us.”
Residential classes officially began today for the Spring 2020 semester. The first Convocation of the semester will be held on Wednesday.
