What About the New Kid?

We had an awesome first chapel this past Wednesday. We heard from God’s Word. We prayed. We sang. We clapped in rhythm (still working on that one).

But something may not occur to everyone the first day you look out at 350 chapel attendees.

Some of these kids have never said a creed (a statement of belief) out loud before. Some may never have heard the Newsboys’ song “We Believe” and do not know how to sing along or if they are part of the “we”. Some may even come from a heritage where all of this is new and strange.

At SPLS we make it clear. We are a Christian school and everything we do will reflect this fact.

But we are also unique in that we gladly welcome students who do not have a Christian “pedigree” like a note from a pastor or a Christian church home.

So we are aware that we will be gently teaching, and coaching, and explaining, and encouraging to all the new and returning students so each one will understand what we believe. And we pray these precious young people join us in this life changing, eternity bound belief.

In His Children’s (and they are ALL His children) Service, Robert C. Boyd
