"Come Follow Me"
Last Wednesday, with the help of our elementary music teacher, Mrs.Draper, we launched our first elementary chapel of the new school year! Whoop! Whoop! And the Holy Spirit was definitely in the house and on the move! From the start of the first worship song with the sweet voices of the Jr. Cougars singing His praises behind me as I ran the lyric slides, I knew God had something special planned for chapel that morning and the whole year too. So much JOY as we explained our theme for the year and our plan for faculty and staff to share their testimonies throughout the year.
From there we focused on Mark 10:13-16 about Jesus wanting the children to come to Him, the importance of child-like faith, and Mrs. Draper shared her salvation experience when she was just four years old. At the end of the chapel, we invited students to pray the salvation prayer and there were eager hearts and voices throughout the gym that we get the gift and blessing of walking with and encouraging them in their own Jesus journeys all year!
Why am I sharing all this with you now? Well, that's easy! I am sharing this with you because it brings my heart overflowing JOY and because I/we would love to invite you to be a unique part of this special and intentional worship experience in the lives of our precious Jr. Cougars by joining us. Chapel dates, are all on Wednesdays this year.
9/27, 10/4, 10/18, 11/15, 11/29, 12/13,
1/3, 1/17, 1/31, 2/14, 2/28, 3/13, 4/3, 5/1, 5/29
Chapels are from about 8:15 -9:00 am in the gym. We usually open with prayer and sing praises to the Lord. After that, throughout this year, one of our faculty/staff will share about the time in their life they gave Jesus their heart. Then we have a 10-15 minute lesson. If your schedule does not afford you the opportunity to be present with us, we would be blessed and grateful for your prayers for our Jr. Cougars and all the Lord is going to do this year in our elementary chapels!

Cruisin' Through the Carline
To help us keep you cruisin' through the car line a little bit before three,
please be sure to post your neon yellow pick-up sign for all to see!
HI! My name is Bryanna Hoover. I graduated from Lancaster Bible College with a degree in Health and Physical Education. God has given me the opportunity to teach Elementary PE, Computer Technology, and coach Middle School Boys Soccer at CCS. Physical education, sports, and kids has always been a passion of mine and I am so excited to get to explore those passions at CCS. A few things I enjoy doing are playing soccer, going to the beach, and watching sunsets. I am so blessed that God has brought me to CCS and I cannot wait to see what He has in store this school year!
As my husband Frank and I were looking for a place of peace for our children to learn and grow, He began to stir in my heart a deep desire to teach and to be a light at CCS. I am so grateful for the opportunity to teach third grade! I have always had a love for teaching and a heart for children. I taught for six years, went to Seminary, was on staff at our church for eleven years, and love all things nature, coffee, reading, swimming, and walks. I'm looking forward to serving and loving our CCS community!
Mrs. Justine Taylor - Grade 4
I grew up near Buffalo, NY in a home across from Lake Erie. I’ve been married for almost 38 years and have 4 grown children. I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior 35 years ago at my best friend’s house. I’ve been attending Hopewell Church for 17 years. I love singing and spending time with my family. I also love nature and traveling to new places. This summer I visited Europe with my family. We went to Paris, then visited my youngest son who recently moved to England. In August I went back to Africa to see the friends I met last July, when I visited 3 orphanages in Kenya.
