Stand! Chapels--Post-It Monday

Mrs. Kim Zomer

September 26, 2022

Stop into Dakota Christian School this week and you might think on a walk through the halls that we’ve bought stock in Post-It Notes! Monday became an impromptu Post-It Note Monday for the big buddies as they prayed at the end of chapel for their “mids” and “lids” (middles and littles). They spent a moment penning a quick message of encouragement for their buddies and then stuck them to either their locker or their classroom door.
Chapels are part of the DCS way of life with 7th-12th meeting both Monday and Thursday around 9:50 a.m., 3rd-6th meeting Thursday at 8:30 a.m., and Pre-2nd meeting Friday at 8:30 a.m. We are meeting this year under the enormous umbrella theme of STAND! Each month we follow the trail of a different “Stand” phrase. September is “Stand Up!” We are asking ourselves “What do I believe?” and looking deeply into the stories of Daniel and his friends Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah—you probably know them better as Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. Lessons on resolving what you value and believe BEFORE you step into a danger zone, making choices about behavior based on the truth of God’s Word to us, and knowing the right voice so you can follow it have been the heart of this month’s messages from God. We’ve chosen between yummy and yucky look-alike food choices, played a little “Let’s Make a Deal,” and observed someone take a blind-folded walk through an obstacle course while coached by conflicting voices. Pray that these visual, active ways of digging into God’s Truth will be planted deep in our children’s hearts, preparing them for the inevitably hard choices they will have to make every day.
