A Celebration of Scripture
Yesterday was our final K-8 chapel of the school year. I like to call these year-end chapels “A Celebration of Scripture”. They present an opportunity for the BRCS family to rejoice together in how the Lord has worked in our lives over the past several months.
Every class participated in some way, using their talents to celebrate the great gift of Scripture. First, second and third graders sang of animals that “magnify the Lord”. Third and fifth graders together recited Psalm 34:1-8. Kindergarten and fourth graders each recited Psalm 23. Sixth graders reflected on specific verses from Proverbs that taught them about wisdom and how to use their words carefully. Seventh and eighth graders recited verses that were particularly meaningful to their classes this year. Several classes also sang special verses in Spanish.
The program began with our middle school worship team, leading the student body in Hillsong United’s “Oceans”, a song that became a BRCS anthem this year. Our worship dance team praised the Lord by performing to Kari Jobe’s “Forever”. The BRCS Band ended the program with a strong rendition of “Fire Dance” by David Shaffer. We closed chapel with the BRCS blessing song, which students sang directly to their teachers and to the parents who were present.
I shed more than a few tears today, taking in the beauty of our students singing, dancing, reciting and playing for God’s glory. We at BRCS are privileged indeed to be “co-workers in God’s service” (1 Cor. 3:9) as He grows our students in grace and godliness. Praise God for encouraging moments of His work, as exemplified in yesterday’s chapel.
