In a year of changes, Service Day stays almost the same

Soccer players spent Service Day rooting out invasive honeysuckle near Kauffman Museum.

Students still shared in one important annual tradition: Service Day, which took place Sept. 23.

Classes were canceled so students could spend several hours serving on campus and in the nearby community.

“Service Day is a physical expression of how Bethel College values an ethic of service,” said Michael Unruh, campus pastor.

Service Day saw its own changes. This year’s service locations were either on campus or within walking distance of campus – instead of throughout North Newton and Newton – and most opportunities took place outdoors.
