See You at the Pole

Today is national See You at the Pole day, and though Hillcrest is in the midst of a wild and fun Homecoming week, we can never forget that the primary mission of our school is to reach students for Christ while operating in a manner worthy of the Lord.  To that end, HCS Upper School students, faculty, and staff  were invited to participate in a campus prayer walk beginning at 7:15 this morning.

Prayer warriors met at the cross on the lawn in front of the administrative building for instructions and a time of worship in song.  After that, individuals proceeded to 10 different stations, where there were signs asking them to pray for our school, our families, our cities, our nation, and our world.  At the end of the walk, everyone met in front of the gym to worship again.

The goal of See You at the Pole is to promote both global unity in Christ and prayer for the our generations.  Hillcrest Christian School is committed to that goal as well.

Girls’ Volleyball Serves Up Fun

Girls’ volleyball is the most recent addition to the HCS athletics program; our first team was formed in 2012. In just a few short years at Hillcrest, this sport has become extremely popular among our students, with nearly 40 girls in grades 6 through 12 now participating.

Next week — Monday and Tuesday — all Cougar Volleyball teams will play their last 2 matches for the season.  Both games are away, at MRA and at Prep, respectively.  This would be a great time to go support our athletes, especially if you haven’t seen them in action yet, and cheer them on to a Win!
