For the spring student-led Week of Prayer, seniors walked the student body through the book John every afternoon. Each group of seniors shared valuable insights and creative lessons from the life of Jesus.
Some seniors shared how they felt nervous going on stage and giving bible lessons in front of the whole school. Lizzie Pearson senior reflected, “Being a speaker for the Week of Prayer was nerve wracking but fun at the same time. I was glad to have the opportunity to spread the word of God and dive deeper into the influential chapter of John. I hope what we shared touched someone’s heart.”
Seniors put time and effort into making the presentations engaging, including skits, charades, modern-day connections, and even an interactive video-game presentation.
“This Week of Prayer was pretty fun and exciting, especially seeing all the seniors participate and summarize their chapters in John. Having their different views on each chapter really helped me see a different perspective of the story. It was interesting listening to their thoughts and their conclusions, and also seeing many of their skits,” Denisse Meza commented.
This Week of Prayer impacted the audience differently. “I really like Week of Prayer because not only do we get out of class a little early, but most importantly because it’s a week where we can learn about Jesus and the things he did,” Joaquin Mendoza expressed. “It was fun because the seniors were presenting their creative projects to teach us. I really liked their skits, but I also learned more about the book of John, thanks to them.”
