Dell Rapids Graduation Prayer Chapel

CandleThe Dell Rapids Reformed Church has sponsored the Dell Rapids Graduation Prayer Chapel since 2008. Each year a candle is lit for each of the Dell Rapids Public and St Mary’s graduates.   Over the years over 600 Graduates have been prayed for by name in the Prayer chapel.

The 2015 Graduates are invited to come light their own candle at 6pm on Friday, May 15, 2015.
Volunteers come to the Prayer Chapel at the Reformed Church Youth Room and pray for each high school graduate by name. A prayer card if provided for each graduate.  The prayers are for the light each of these young people bring into the world as they make this important transition from High School to adulthood.

This year the prayer chapel will run from 6pm Friday, May 15 to 6pm Saturday, May 16. Twenty-four continuous hours of prayer! We need two volunteers for each hour. Please sign-up on the on-line sign-up.  You can also send me a private message on facebook, text or phone call at 605 366 3934 or email at to sign up for a time slot.
