Our K-8 students came together today on the Elementary Campus for the ACSI Day of Prayer. Our students and staff enjoyed a joint chapel before breaking off into groups to go through four stations of prayer - adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication. After that time, all students had the opportunity to post their blessings on our Wall of Blessings in Trojan Tunnel.

We're thankful for our amazing students, staff, and families and the ability to spend today in prayer together as a community!
