Chapel and Friendship
Chapel this week began with prayer led by Ethan (6th) over those in Houston, Texas and those in the path of Hurricane Irma. The 6th grade Music Crew then introduced our chapel theme song for the year called, “The Lion and the Lamb.” Many voices were raised as we enjoyed worshiping together!
After worship, Pastor Will introduced our September theme: “FRIENDSHIP: using your words and actions to show others you care.” Pastor Will emphasized that friends accept one another and love one another. As always, he drew upon simple everyday things like Play-Doh to make illustrations come to life.
Kyle (5th) came onto the stage to help create Play-Doh shapes as Pastor Will explained that when God gets a hold of you, He will shape you in such a way that He can fill you with His Holy Spirit. We want to be so filled with Him that our actions overflow with the fruits of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, etc.) onto our friends and those we meet. Proverbs 17:17 says, ”A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity.”
We all left Chapel knowing that because of Jesus’ love for us we can show others that we care. This is wonderful news, and we look forward to learning more together next week!
