CCS students 'Pray at the Pole'

Community Christian School’s fifth through eighth-graders met at the flagpole on Wednesday morning for the annual Prayer at the Pole event.

Thirty-three students sang songs including “My Country’ ‘Tis of Thee’ and then prayed for people and issues in our nation, community, world, and school.

Eighth grader Tanner Hammer related the event to CCS’s theme for this year, “Facing our Giants”, by saying, “Just like God answers our prayers, he helps us face the giants in our lives.”  Four eighth-graders conclude the ceremony with the ringing of the bell in front of school.
