The theme of this year’s senior chapel was “Unmasked.” Our senior class wanted to be vulnerable with the rest of the high school as we know that being real is difficult. After worshipping together, over 30 seniors chose to be vulnerable through sharing their cardboard testimony. On one side of the cardboard we wrote something we struggle with when we aren’t relying on the Lord. On the other side we shared how Christ has redeemed us from that struggle. It was amazing to watch the courage of our peers, as they were willing to take off their masks and share what the Lord has done in their lives. Over 50 seniors then spread around the room, paired up with a junior and prayed over them for their upcoming year. It was such an encouragement and blessing for everyone to see how unifying vulnerability can be. The senior class verse of the year is Galatians 5:13, “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free…” We know that true freedom is only found in Christ and trusting Him in who He has made us to be. ~ The Senior Class of 2015
All library books are due by Friday, May 15th. The library will be closed for inventory, including before and after school, the week of May 18th-May 22nd. Thank you for your understanding!
