Elementary Chapel Day: We heard about the Evidence of God in our lives in our words and deeds. Mrs. V. Folkema shared her story about how God is with us wherever we go, even on vacation! We learned a new song about “Whatever You Do” – how you need to do all to the glory of God. Many of the students also were able to lead us in our singing today. It was great to have some little ones come join us up front also! After being out 2 days for snow days, it was great to come back and focus on having God in our lives every day!

Family Group Friday: the theme today was worship. In our groups, our middle school leaders led us with questions like: why do we worship? When do we worship? How do we worship? We shared our ideas and then had a time of worship together. We read together from Psalm 92 “It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing praises to your name, Most High; To declare your goodness in the morning, and your faithfulness by night.”

Middle School Chapel: Worship! Today in the MS chapel, we looked at what we thought the definition of worship was and what scripture had to say about worship.

Our MS students were challenged to lead all of our students in worship next week in their family groups.
Spanish Chapel! Today our Spanish Immersion kiddos were able to praise God in the language they are learning on!
