Giving Thanks

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

PilgrimIndian 500

Giving thanks is a natural overflow of a heart that recognizes every good thing as a gift from a gracious Creator. On Pilgrim and Indian Day, Harvest students took time to recognize and celebrate an American tradition that began in 1621 when the Pilgrims and Wampanoag people joined together to give thanks for the bountiful harvest. Although a spirit of thanksgiving was commonplace among the first settlers, early leaders, from the Pilgrims to George Washington, and later Abraham Lincoln, believed it was critical to set aside time as a nation to offer praise and thanksgiving to the Lord.

Here at Harvest, we embrace this tradition as students dressed in traditional Pilgrim and Indian costumes, and enjoyed a special chapel and various classroom activities which highlighted the importance of giving thanks. The day’s festivities culminated with a delicious, traditional Thanksgiving feast, prepared by our Seniors. As we enjoy the fellowship and fun of Pilgrim and Indian Day and this week of Thanksgiving, we join with the Psalmist who reminded us to “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name” (Psalm 100:4).

All of the High School students got a morning wakeup call first thing Monday morning after their Thanksgiving break as they were motivated and challenged about their future college choices! Dr. Abels and Mr. Lewis worked as a team to give HCA the students an overview of the college admission process; Mrs. Jae Han provided additional information and with questions The topics included motivational perspectives on life, college, and eternity; high school graduation requirements for Harvest; basic application timeline; tips on choosing colleges; and an introduction to Naviance, the newly deployed software that allows students to research, select, prepare and communicate with thousands of colleges in the US. The seminar ended with an extended time of question and answer time with the students. We trust that all the high schoolers left encouraged and motivated to finish the semester well and set their sights on great goals for extraordinary futures wherever God will take them!

Meet Me in Saint Louis

Thursday, November 5th, 2015

drama

This fall the Harvest Acting Troupe enjoyed great success when they put on “Meet Me in St. Louis” for two nights in the Harvest Family Life Center. This romantic comedy followed a family’s struggle after their father announces his new job…in New York. After some slapping, a little biting, and plenty of laughter, the family (and the cast) eventually learned some great lessons about love, patience, and understanding.
