HIGH SCHOOL CHAPEL
Tuesday: Andy Pasek, youth director at Elmhurst CRC & TC grad from the early 2000's, spoke. In light of God as our amazing creator and loving redeemer, we are now called to put into action what we say we believe. Andy told the story of his 2 year old son wearing a superman cape at a wedding reception. His actions were contagious and soon all the children had superman "napkin-capes". When we live for Jesus with love and joy, people are drawn to the light of Jesus within us. So let's get out there and make a difference for the gospel!
Thursday: Hanibal Rodriguez, pastor of Iglesia del Pueblo that meets at Wheaton Bible Church, was our guest. He challenged us to consider what we base our identity in. When we base our identity in ourselves (talents, personality, possessions), we become slaves to other people's opinions of us. Paul mentioned over 200 times in his letters to live "in him". To have a flourishing and hopeful life, we must base our identity in Jesus. God graciously calls us to live IN HIM!
MIDDLE SCHOOL CHAPEL
Ross VanderBill, 7th grade Social Studies teacher, shared about the ups and downs of his life. He had photos from each stage of life. His honest testimony powerfully communicated the need to trust in God at all times. We need to remember that God is with us at each step of the way, whether life is grand or gritty.
