In step with the Spirit
Posted on October 31, 2013
Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-control – Galatians 5:22
The fifth chapter of Galatians presents a sharp contrast between the fruits of the Spirit and the works of the flesh. As a Christian school, we hope to challenge our students to keep in step with the Spirit. (v. 25)
To that end, there is a school-wide effort in place to reinforce the importance of treating one another with kindness and love. Our Be the Body of Christ campaign kicked-off in last week’s chapel and will encourage secondary students to recognize that their interactions with one another are part of their walk with the Lord. Chapels, pep rallies, guest speakers, and advisory periods, are a few of the vehicles to be used in communicating that message throughout the school year.
Teachers are awarding students’ behavior in the classroom as part of Jump on the Bandwagon, a campaign geared towards the elementary grades. Students who accumulate the most tickets for fruitful deeds receive encouraging wristbands at the end of each grading period.
Congratulations to the following students who received prizes for the first nine weeks:
Anna Lohmann, Delaney Alderman, Doug Hinebaugh, Chloe Mullens, Maverick Brann, Rudy Bland, Sophie Vecchio, Hayes Galloway, Maggie Mercure, Abbie Shoemaker, Ryan Cummins, and Megan Olfert.
As our students learn to keep in step with the Spirit, it will spill over into their relationships, their studies, their community involvement, and their extra-curricular activities as well.
