Todays’ chapel service was centered around our Serve-a-thon theme, “Be the Light” (Matthew 5:14). It is our mission to raise up children who enjoy serving Jesus by serving others. Every year, each class participates in a community service project. Our students have worked with various ministries, such as Operation Christmas Child, Lighthouse Mission, and God’s Provision; or worked in our own community cleaning parks and beaches, singing Christmas carols at nursing homes or in the neighborhood, or feeding the elderly.
Our special speakers today were two young women who have been involved in mission trips. Colleen, a WSCS graduate, shared about her mission trip while a student here in the 8th grade. After that, her heart for missions brought her to El Salvador where she ministered to local people and helped building houses. This past year, she went to Uganda on a mission trip and taught children about Jesus during Vacation Bible School. Alissa, the niece of one of our teachers, shared her experience in the mission field in Kosovo, teaching design to children in a school. She was able to share her faith with some of the Muslim people and prayed with students who asked for prayer.
It was a very inspiring chapel! Three of our middle-school students shared what they did for their summer community service project and how God ministered to them through it. Later in the day, during devotions, several of the students expressed their interest in going on mission trips and questioned me about the possibility of doing a mission trip this year. That’s awesome!
BE THE LIGHT!
