Spiritual Emphasis Week at Christian Life Academy
During the week of October 22-26th we once again welcomed our friends from Coastlands Consultants to join us for Spiritual Emphasis Week.
The annual practice of Spiritual Emphasis Week is very important to CLA. This year grades K-8th gathered together for five mornings for Chapel services led by Mr. Matt Huffman. These meetings were filled with songs that filled our hearts with joy and encouraging lessons rooted in the Word of God.
Mr. Matt didn’t end his lessons with Chapel. Grades 6-8th had the great opportunity to work closely with Mr. Matt on the theme of Team Work throughout the entire week. Whether they were participating in soccer games in the gym or thoughtful time in journal writing, students were learning valuable lessons. The results were spiritual enrichment for our students and productive group discussions. CLA middle schoolers say the “we before me” was one of the most important things they learned during the week. As a result, they would like to share their learning with the students in younger grades. It is so encouraging to see how our middle schoolers serve as leaders in CLA and can provide strong examples for the younger students!
Mr O’Neil, who teaches Middle School Science, summarizes our experience with Coastlands Consultants best when he said that “It was great how Mr. Huffman focused so strongly on team building—[it was] good for students and teachers alike!”
We cannot wait to carry forward the lessons we have learned from Coastlands Consultants throughout this academic year and the years to come! Thank you Dr. Brady and Mr. Huffman!
