Middle School Chapel

February 17–Dan Quist

His text was II Corinthians 4:1-6. His message? Because of sin in this world, we have a veil over our eyes. It's difficult for us to see the full image of God until we get to heaven. In the meantime, it's important for us to look for those ways God reveals himself to us, even though it may be blurry.

December 3–Mr. Lindloff

Mr. Lindloff began by highlighting a common expression in our culture: follow your heart. He spoke of the Biblical view of life—live with hope and follow Jesus! The ending challenge: “most important, may we have the courage to follow Jesus and see his kingdom come. Everything else is secondary.”

December 2–Mr. Davidson

Mr. Davidson spoke about the importance of a foundation. Just as buildings need a good foundation, we need a strong foundation in Jesus Christ. He also explained about how the school was blessed to have a high school remodel this summer, which the middle school students can look forward to!

November 12–Small Groups

Students watched a short video and read from James 1:19, “My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,”.

Four high school students led the chapel.
