“Refresh” was the theme this year for Spiritual Emphasis Week as students sought to refresh themselves in the Word of God and His presence. Secondary students had six services over the course of four days in which they were able to spend extended periods of time in praise and worship. Additionally, all six services featured dynamic speakers communicating God’s truth on the topics of: renewing your mind, renewing your perception of God, abiding with Him, engaging the different seasons of spiritual growth in life, and sustaining growth in God over the long haul. The students were incredibly blessed to have pastors come from all over Long Island and share God’s word. Three of the pastors were actually SCS alumni! After each of the last four sermons, our students broke into small discussion groups, guided by a faculty sponsor, where the young men and women of God were able to tackle the personal application of each message and share with each other what they learned individually. We have seen great spiritual growth in the student body through the leveraging of the small group discussion format. This interpersonal, active, and engaging form of ministry corresponds closely to the mission of SCS, which is to not only teach with excellence in the classroom, but also to provide life-on-life influence that produces exceptional young Christian leaders with a heart for God, a mind for Truth, and a passion to change the World.
