Calvary Christian School
Spiritual Emphasis Week
October 2nd – 6th, 2017
“Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility, count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:3-4
Calvary Christian School’s middle and high schools participated in a Spiritual Emphasis Week where the emphasis was placed on serving others during the week. Monday through Thursday, October 2nd – 5th, from 2:10P to 3:15P, students listened to speakers talking about how they serve, and on Friday, October 6th, the high schoolers went out into the community to serve.
High schoolers visited on Friday, October 6th Easterseals, Flat Rock Park, Cooper Creek Park, Heath Park, Lake Oliver Marina, Open Door Community House, Safehouse Ministry, Downtown YMCA, and Columbus Hospice. The students performed tasks from litter pick up, paper shredding, washing buses, assembling math booklets, storm cleanup, distributing cypress bark on outdoor recreational areas, to serving lunch.
The middle school held sessions with the following topics: A Servant Leader is Available, A Servant Leader Loves People, A Servant Leader Loves God and A Servant Leader Wants to Grow. The sessions were led by Ms. Amy Brasher.
