Thursday: Small Group Chapel today. The groups scattered throughout the school to read 1 Peter 1:3-4 and to discuss "what was a highlight in corporate worship for you in the last two weeks, thinking of special TC chapels, church services, youth events?" and "how is God calling you to respond to Jesus' death and resurrection?"

Holy Week Chapels


HIGH SCHOOL CHAPEL
Tuesday: Lots of student involvement in today's chapel. After Matt F. led the opening prayer, Ariana and Mr. Pelt led us in singing. Then we watched a 5 minute video put together by Olivia H., Josh and Emily. They interviewed people in downtown Elmhurst about their views on Easter. Josh and Andy shared their perspective on the importance of Easter. Olivia S. then led us in a responsive reading focusing on the cross of Christ.  To watch the chapel CLICK HERE



Thursday: Our “Good Friday” prayer chapel. Tommy read the crucifixion story from Luke 23. We all sang When I Survey the Wondrous Cross. Then Mrs. Lanenga sang O, Sacred Head Now Wounded. Our prayer time involved coming to the front and writing our sin on a piece of paper. After a time of confession, students attached the paper to a cross that was full of nails. While we prayed Mrs. Fox played the piano and Mary S. played the cello.

MIDDLE SCHOOL CHAPEL
Wednesday: The middle school also had a “Good Friday” prayer chapel. Words cannot explain the beauty of the sacred prayer time as middle school students spent time confessing sin and committing to Jesus. In addition, we sang In Christ Alone and How Deep the Father’s Love for Us.

Mr. Mitchell, Chapel Band, Fernandes' Homeroom

HIGH SCHOOL CHAPEL
Tuesday: Mr. Mitchell spoke about money and treasure. After giving us some interesting trivia facts about money and teen influence on spending in America, he gave us the challenge to be givers and to start now in life to tithe (or give even more!). But ultimately, we should give because God first gave to us. Jesus is an amazing grace gift to us. God sees us as his treasure. To watch the chapel CLICK HERE

Thursday: The chapel band led us in worship. We sang Prince of Peace (You are Holy), Lay Me Down, 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord) and Great are You Lord (It's your breath in our lungs)
