Chapel focuses on stories of transformation

Chapel focuses on stories of transformation

We spent the last two weeks hearing personal stories of some of the people who are a part of our Hillcrest community. It is encouraging to hear how God is at work among us.

On Monday, February 10, we heard from Leanne Bender, first year guidance counselor and activities director at Hillcrest. Leanne spoke of her background and how she came to work at Hillcrest.

Tuesday’s chapel time was spent in small groups.

Wednesday’s chapel featured more of our staff who are new this year. Zach Weiss (director of maintenance), Angela Snakenburg (business teacher and technology), Marissa Unruh (administrative assistant), and Rebecca Beachy Miller (director of enrollment) were interviewed. They also shared some of their background and how they came to Hillcrest. 

There was no school on Thursday because of weather.

Friday’s chapel featured a relationships game in which pairs of people who are either good friends, siblings, dating or related in some way were asked questions.

On Monday, February 17th, we continued with personal stories of transformation. We heard from Hana Witbeck, who is a senior at Hillcrest, and Aaron Gingerich, health and PE teacher.

Tuesday’s chapel was in small groups.

On Wednesday, we heard from Jacob Kirkwood from Faith Bible Baptist College in Ankeney, Iowa. Jacob and his colleague, Willie Felderman were visiting for the morning. Jacob talked of transformation in his own life and lessons that he learned through difficulties he experienced.

On Thursday, we held a hymn sing in the Celebration Hall foyer.

Friday’s chapel featured music teacher Mike Wagner sharing on the theme of transformation. Transformation takes time, it often happens during tough times, and it doesn’t happen in a vacuum.
