On Wednesday, November 7, 2012, Christian Center School held its annual chapel honoring United States veterans. We would like to thank the following sercviceman for joining us and making our chapel memorable: Captain Gordon Evans, Captain Jorge Martinez, Staff Sergeant Loren Clayton, Sergeant Joshua Cozzone, and Henry Dauber. Additionally, Captain Gordon, a volunteer with “Veteran’s Inspiring Patriotism”, visited classrooms and discussed his experiences as a pilot in the Vietnam War.
On October 17, 2012, grandparents, real and surrogate, joined CCS’s student body in a special chapel in their honor. Afterwards, many joined us in class and participated in lessons ranging from spelling bees to an oral language construction exercise. At recess time, those bave enough to participate, played kickball and basketball with our elementary students at recess. All in all, it was a lot of fun showing our grandparents how much we love them.
“See You at the Pole” is an annual global event held the third Wednesday of every September. Students gather at their school’s flagpole to pray for God’s incredible power to be released on academic campuses worldwide.
This years theme was AWAKEN based on Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians:
“ For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filledto the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen” (Ephesians 3:14-21 NIV)
