North Hills holds annual prayer walk

North Hills Christian School

SALISBURY — Students, staff members, parents, and the greater community gathered in Helen Kelley Smith Gymnasium at North Hills Christian School to participate in the school’s annual back-to-school prayer walk.

Participants were divided into groups and then walked around campus to cover the school in prayer for the 2017-18 school year. Three student-led groups stopped at each major location on campus, including the front entrance, classrooms, student lockers, gymnasium, athletic fields, chapel, middle and high school lunch area, playground, administration offices and library.

Students gave thanks for the school and prayed for God’s strength and guidance throughout the school year.

As participants walked, their prayers went beyond their own concerns and focused directly on elevating the North Hills Christian School community. As groups stopped in the gym, members prayed for opportunities for Christ-like character and good sportsmanship to be displayed.

In classrooms, groups prayed that each North Hills student would grow academically and spiritually. While in the chapel, groups prayed that students surrender their lives to the plan God has for them.

The prayer walk allowed staff members and students to center the new school year in prayer and keep Christ at the center of the school.

For those who would like to continue to support North Hills school through prayer, there are several opportunities. People in Prayer is a group whose goal is to cover every aspect of North Hills Christian School in prayer throughout the school year. The group meets at 8:15 a.m. Thursdays in the conference room.

Moms in Prayer is an international organization of moms, grandmothers and aunts who come together to pray for their children and school. The group meets at 8:10 a.m. Fridays.
