Students host prayer event at CHS


From staff reports



The Fellowship of Christian Students at Clinton High School held the annual See You at the Pole event.


See You at The Pole is a day committed to global unity in Christ and prayer for youth.

All around the globe, in every time zone, students gathered at their flagpoles, praying for their school, friends, families, churches, and communities.

Chris Embler, the youth pastor at First United Methodist Church, delivered a brief message to students at Clinton High School, focusing on the national See You at The Pole bible verse Psalm 24:3-6.

Psalm 24:3-6 reads, “Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god. They will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God their Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob.”

Following his message, the students, teachers, administrator, and community members linked hands and gathered around the flagpole. After a large prayer group, we broke into small groups and individually prayed for specific topics, as well as personal prayer request.

Clinton High School’s Fellowship of Christian Students Leaders Kaitlyn Royal, Katherine Downing, Anna Starling, Mattie Byrd, Wesley Cowand, and Jacob Anders hosted the event, which is held yearly. Fellowship of Christian Students (FCS) is a student led club at Clinton High School and is designed to equip, empower, and encourage students to make a difference for Christ.

Prayer is significant because it helps one’s spiritual relationship with God to grow. A simple conversation with God can cause great things to happen in the end. Prayer groups such as Clinton High School’s Fellowship of Christian Students is a reminder of how great our God is and it shows how much he loves us.

FCS of Clinton High School is hosting two fundraisers to provide funding for the new Fields of Faith event in the spring of 2017. Fundraisers will be held Nov. 29 from 5-9 p.m. at Pizza Inn and Jan. 7 from 7-9:30 a.m. at Hwy. 55.
