Mt. Ellis Academy Holds Week of Prayer
Week of Prayer at Mt. Ellis Academy began the last week of October 2008, with the praise band leading song service. Barry Curtis, pastor, was the speaker. Curtis focused on the humanity of Jesus, speaking about the experiences he had, while relating to students and what they go through. Later in the week Curtis spoke about having to chose who to serve and making wise choices.
It was an amazing week, and it had an impact on students. During the week there were many times when students could feel God’s presence. In addition, the music helped add to the sense of worshipfulness.
At first, most students couldn't get into the worship, however, by the end of the week many were singing along and enjoying the experience. God’s hand was working as they concluded the week.
