TUESDAY: Ashley, from WAR Chest Boutique, spoke about how this store in Naperville helps "Women At Risk". The problem of human trafficking is much bigger than we realize. Timothy Christian is partnering with this store for an event called "aDress the Issues". See the school's website for more information.
Students Anthony and Sarah shared about their heart for Africa by promoting an event called Afrocka. Money raised as these events has contributed to building a Christian school in Kenya. Then Grace shared about her heart for autistic children at Elim Christian School in Palos Heights. Grace works there in the summers. She described how difficult the work can be and also how God has given her such a love for these kids.
THURSDAY: Students, Lexi and Kate, along with Mr. Mitchell shared about a service opportunity at By the Hand in Chicago. The video below explains this ministry more.
Also on Thursday we had a time of advent prayer. Students spread throughout the auditorium to pray. On the stage we had a tall cross, blankets, Bibles, paper, and art materials (pencils, crayons, markers). It was a holy time of prayer, as silence, except for those praying together, fell over the auditorium.
MIDDLE SCHOOL CHAPEL
On Wednesday we had a chapel focused on the persecuted church. We watched a video. Students read stories about current persecuted Christians and prayed for them. To help us remember to pray for persecuted Christians, wristbands are being sold for $1.
High School: Singing with the student band on Tuesday and Mr. Lindloff on Thursday
