Chapel this past week…

We enjoyed a speaker from Westside Jesus Church.  He encouraged the kids to use their talents and giftings, even as children, to further the Kingdom of God and help others.

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.  If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God.  If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.  To Him be the glory and the power for ever and ever.  Amen.”  1 Peter 4:10-11

Ask your student to tell you about it!

Chapel this past week...
We had the honor of hearing 8th grade Proverbs speeches.  The book of Proverbs is such a treasure trove of wisdom for children and adults.  There were so many wonderful verses and testimonies shared.  I wonder what your child remembers from the student speeches?

 

“Sin is not ended by multiplying words, but the prudent hold their tongues.”         Proverbs 10:19

Chapel…
While we had no chapel this past week due to music rehearsals, we did have a wonderful visit with Mrs. Patty Pullen.  Mrs. Pullen is our connection to the Christian school in Uganda.  We learned some very interesting things about their daily life and about their school.  Ask your student to tell you what they remember.  Perhaps they will tell you about the tiny chair that the Ugandans carry with them.  Mrs. Pullen will be returning on Tuesday to teach us more and will also make us Ugandan porridge to try!

Luke 2:11-14  (ESV)

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

Chapel…
This last week’s chapel was a treat as the advanced choir from Westside Christian High School came and sang some beautiful acapella Christmas music.  It was especially fun to sing along with a few well known favorites.
The director reminded us that the reason we celebrate Christmas and Christ’s birth is because of His great love for us.  He encouraged everyone to remember Christ’s love and to extend love to those we see everyday.

Luke 2:11-14  (ESV)

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
