Congratulations to all of our seniors who have received numerous acceptance letters for the fall of 2018. We are so proud of your hard work, endurance, and passion to bring your excellence till the very end of your high school career. It has been an arduous journey for you all, but we hope you can count all seasons as not a waste or temporary gain, but another stepping stone to help guide you on your next journey in life. We celebrate along side with you and cheer you on for the upcoming chapter!
Today during chapel, Ms. Cho covered the importance of our responsibility to maintain and protect the world that God has created for it to be healthy and safe. We were able to sow seeds and plant flowers as a class to represent His love for us and the earth. Our prayer is that every student will be aware of all growth and living things that surrounds them to nurture and care for one another in love.
The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it on the seas
and established it on the waters. -Psalms 24:1-2
And when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body, which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”- 1 Corinthians 11:24
Today marks a special day where our elementary students were able to partake in feasting together as a family in Communion. Every heart and every yes before the Lord was remembered and powerful as we thanked the Lord for his sacrifice unto us. We praise God for providing His timely ways in bringing us together and celebrating His perfect love for us.
Big thanks to Pastor Daniel Park for leading Communion and giving us the benediction. Also, thank you parents who were able to come and join us today!
Continue to pray and partner with us as our Chaplain Ms. Cho takes us on the continual journey of unpacking the spiritual disciplines each Chapel.
Spiritual Discipline:CONFESSION-what a powerful time today where our elementary students had the opportunity to confess their one true love and commitment to Jesus Christ by starting at the cross. We believe today was a grand celebration in Heaven as each student said "YES, I receive you as my one and only Lord and Savior into my heart" that Heaven was welcoming each son and daughter with joy!
For the past semester, elementary students have been memorizing Bible verses for each spiritual discipline that we have been learning in chapel. Today, we held our annual Bible memory contest and witnessed the excitement, readiness, and joy in reciting the Bible verses. GCFS witnessed such fruit that bears from all the love of God's word being spoken out loud.
Congratulations to Ms. Lee's 4th grade class who took the victory! All the elementary students were amazing and we are so thankful for your eagerness to learn and memorize His word!
GCFS had the blessed opportunity to partner with 시립고덕 (Shee- Reep) elderly center to bring joy and love to the community and family there. We prayed and hoped that our hugs, smiles, and service would lighten and warm their hearts. As we introduced ourselves, Ms. Nathalie's music class prepared several performances k-8th grade and were able to provide joy with their talents. Elementary partnered with the elderly to make bead necklaces and bracelets while the secondary served in cleaning the community center. Service was so deepened by the love our students poured out today and it was an unforgettable experience and rich memories remain in our hearts through our service day today. GCFS, you are all AMAZING!
The elementary department has been growing so deeply in love with how to be more like Christ through the spiritual disciplines that have been taught every week. We are so blessed and privileged to memorize Scripture, learn what God values, and to practice the very teachings that God highlights in the Bible. This week, we learned what serving looks like. In the very nature of who Jesus was as fully God and fully man, he humbled himself and washed the feet of the disciples. Our chaplain- Ms. Cho led the teachers to serve our elementary students one by one and washed their feet during our chapel this morning. What a powerful way to display what serving looks like and ultimately how love looks like. We pray that all of our students will continue to extend themselves selflessly and generously to love one another. In light of our service day tomorrow, we are thankful that as a school we can have first-hand experience of learning how to serve how Jesus served!
Welcoming our new chaplain- Ms. Kristin Cho for the second semester by covering her in prayer. Thank you to our elementary head teacher, Ms. Kwon who led us in a time of blessing and encouraging her as we embark on a new series: Spiritual Disciplines! We look forward to the training and lessons that our students will learn and grow deeper in discipline!
