Today, our GAC family celebrated Thanksgiving at our annual all-school chapel. Students in chapel classes and chapel band led the community in praise and worship, and student body president Chandler Dula offered an inspired message to all students. “One day you might know God as a protector. Another day, you might know Him as a provider or a comforter. We don’t serve a small God. He is a “big G” God and not a “little g” God,” he said.
The theme of this year’s Thanksgiving Chapel was “Wonder” and students big and small offered up memories of times they felt great wonder, or awe, of something that God created, such as seeing the Grand Canyon, the first time they held their baby brother, or sitting on their deck looking for shooting stars. GAC President Scott Harsh closed the chapel with a beautiful prayer. “As we think about what it means to give thanks to our Lord, one of the ways that we are able to respond to that is by giving back. I pray that you see wonder in the things that you do. I pray that this time brings you all closer to God,” he prayed with all students.
