In the daily hustle and bustle, when tests and homework and extracurricular activities seem to take precedence over everything, students sometimes forget the real reason they are here. Thankfully, Hillcrest has almost weekly chapel services which seek to remind Upper School students that our true priorities in life are to love God and to love others. And when students take on the responsibility of leading worship and sharing the burdens of their heart, it becomes evident that no other school is like Hillcrest. Giving students the freedom — and constant encouragement — to share their faith in a world that seeks to silence Christians more and more is the true mission of our school.
As Thanksgiving approaches, we ask the entire Hillcrest family to remember our school in your prayers: Remember to thank the Lord for the work he is doing on our campus and beyond, and ask him to bless our students, faculty, and staff so that we may continue to “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” – Matthew 5:16
