Faith in Action Northwest Christianâs Week of Prayer Features New Pastor
The Northwest Christian School in Puyallup, Wash., featured Seth Pierce, new senior pastor of the adjacent Puyallup Church, as speaker for the year's first Week of Prayer, which was held at the end of September.
"Pastor Seth inspired the students to study more about Jesus," says Allan Sather, Northwest Christian School's new principal.
Week of Prayer was divided into two groups, with a session for kindergarten through fourth grade and another for grades five through eight. Each morning, Pierce kept the students captivated with his personal and biblical stories of faith in action.
After the morning worship, Pierce got acquainted with the students in their classrooms and at a recess dodge-ball game, during which the students tried to get him out.
Week of Prayer also served as a prompt for upper-grade students to indicate their desire to study the Bible. The pastoral staff will provide these Bible studies throughout the school year and prepare students for baptism in the spring.
The school is already anticipating their spring Week of Prayer with Greg Howell, Graham, Wash., and Yelm, Wash., pastor and former Puyallup associate pastor.
Staff and students enjoy the opportunity to be at a Christian school where they can celebrate God by dedicating two weeks of the school year to spiritual emphasis.
