Shine the Light of Peace to Share Jesus JOY!
Every new school I begin praying at some point during the school year before to ask the Lord what His plans are for our elementary program, our Jr. Cougars, and our elementary dream team, and this year was no different! It turns out that our I.U. school counselor, Mrs. McCullough was praying along with me and I didn't even know it until I received an email from her this summer. It was revealed that God was leading and He led us to the same idea/vision to build upon BLESS. This year, in addition to the components of BLESS, our focus will be to share Jesus JOY by shining the light of His PEACE to one another and many others! Our focus verses are:
"So then let us pursue what makes for peace and mutual upbuilding."
"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful."
We celebrated the introduction of the theme for this year at our first elementary chapel of the year as well as the Jr. Cougar "Day of Peace." The day included writing class and individual "peace goals", making lanterns, making hands to create the word PEACE to hang in the elementary abode, team building activities in the gym, and of course a picnic lunch and extra recesses. We ended this special connection day with cool and refreshing "peace pops." (The "peace pops" were passed out quite peacefully with no squabbling over colors. Whoop! Whoop! :)
You are invited to attend our elementary chapel this Wednesday, 9/19/19 in the Multi-Purpose room in the high school at 8:20 am.
Please remember sign in at the main office first. We are looking forward to worshiping our Jesus with our Jr. Cougars and you!
