Mrs. Brantley talked about all the little things we should be thankful for in this Thanksgiving season, including even the simplest tools in our lives like a shoestring or an old candle, which have served us and can continue to serve us.




Guest Speaker Pastor John Music talked about who we can trust in this world. He reminded us that we can always trust God because we know that He wants the best for us. We should not be content just to know about God, but to know him deeply, experientally, and make Him an active part of our lives.

Ryan Hoover spoke about finding our spiritual gifts - things we are good at - and how vital it is to utilize and communicate those gifts for the benefit of others as this is an act for the glory of God.

Dr. Becci Prescott spoke to Upper School and Grammar School students about her family's mission to Cameroon, Africa to support in their dental and agricultural needs.

Mrs. Brantley reiterated some basic habits we should have as Christians, including how prayer should be as natural to our daily lives as breathing. We do not even think about breathing, and so we should not even have to think about spending time daily in silent meditation and prayer.

Mrs. Brantley spoke to students about tools in a toolbox, referencing Corinthians 12:4-7, summarizing, "There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different types of work, but the same God works all of them in all men." Mrs. Brantley showed the students a toolbox with all kinds of different types of tools in it, telling them that God has many different tools in His toolbox - which are the members of the Church. He uses us for special purposes - much like a chef uses a whisk and not a wrench to mix food together.

In Upper School chapel, Chad Warner spoke to students about the science behind the dangers to healthy brain development from intoxicants like alcohol, cannabis, and other psychoactive substances.

Mrs. Brantley discussed with Grammar School about how we can change the world just by changing our words. She emphasized how one kind word can change a person's entire day. Mrs. Brantley talked about her favorite season - summer - and how one of the reasons she loves it so much is that she gets to walk barefoot. We take off our shoes when we get home because we want to be comfortable. She asked, "Who wants to be uncomfortable? Why don't we just never wear shoes, or just wear socks in the winter?" The problem, she explained, is that life brings us all sorts of dangerous things that are dangerous and sometimes painful to walk on, and we need protection. Our soles are like our souls; in our walk with Jesus, we need to guard our souls as stated in John 17:15 - "My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one." God protects our souls like a good pair of shoes does. His Word will always show us how.


Coach Aubrey Rogers, Eagles varsity football assistant coach, spoke to Upper School students about how critical our culture is of people that we deem lesser than, and how we handle adversity that arises in life. He talked about a prisoner that he had ministered to that lost his home, his father, and one of his children all in the course of a year and a half, and somehow still found his way back to relative normalcy. Coach Rogers stated that what man intends for evil, God uses for good, and life is about how we respond to these events as Christians.

Mrs. Brantley discussed putting positive attributes in your "personality bag" in chapel.


Justin Hagindorf, Youth Director at Hill Country Church, used the energy that transferred through students hands to talk about the power of being connected.

Trish Wilson spoke at Upper School chapel about how difficult it is to hear Christ because of the "noise" of the world sometimes. She blindfolded a few students, and asked the rest of the students to get loud while the blindfolded students attempted to walk down the hall to Mr. Bruster. Trish shouted correct directions to the blindfolded students but they admitted it was difficult to hear because of how loud it was.

Mrs. Brantley's chapel discussions are always of the highest quality -- she discusses issues in a fun, interactive, and thought-provoking way. If parents are ever able to attend one, consider doing so! Here, she talks about how powerful our words and the tongue are, using a cow tongue to drive the point home.


Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. - Ephesians 4:29

Mr. DuBose gave the first Chapel, speaking about the Fruit of the Spirit inspired by Galatians 5:22

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

and how each Fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, is important to incorporate into our lives.

Both our B and A teams played Gloria Deo on Thursday. This being the B-team’s only second game off the year. We started off well, but then could not get in to an offense set and didn’t play as a team.
