HIGH SCHOOL CHAPEL
Tuesday: The chapel band led in singing for the last time this year. They did a great job this year–so committed to worship and musical excellence. Some of the songs they led were Build Your Kingdom Here, Beautiful Things and How Great is Our God. We ended with the Doxology.
Thursday: "Good Friday" chapel. Chapel opened with a video, Falling Plates, http://youtu.be/08peJK0m510. Students read the story of Jesus' crucifixion, and we sang When I Survey the Wondrous Cross led by Jenny and Alex on the piano. Mr. W. Introduced our time of confession and prayer. What we "survey" in life, or focus our attention on, affects everything. We are called to fix our eyes on Jesus. Students came forward to pick up a piece of torn black paper and spend time in confession. Then they were invited to the cross to leave the paper there and pick up a white cord that represented forgiveness and acceptance by God. The cord could be tied on the wrist to be a visual reminder of what Jesus accomplished for us. It was a holy time of prayer in the auditorium.
MIDDLE SCHOOL CHAPEL
"Good Friday" chapel. We opened with an oboe trio (Dan, Emily, Olivia). The high school chapel band led the singing. We then had a special musical number. Mrs. Gunn sang with her daughters, Majesty and Grace, I am Redeemed–such a worshipful song about God's love for us. Next John, Carleigh and Val read the story of Jesus' crucifixion. For our prayer-time, students came forward to pick up a torn black piece of paper to represent their sin. They were invited to pray, leave the paper at the cross and then pick up a white piece of paper that was printed with the word "FORGIVEN". The students rose to the occasion, and participated with reverence. A great chapel!
