The annual “See You at the Pole” event for schools is just one week away on Wednesday, September 27th starting at 7:00 a.m. All around the globe, in every time zone, students will be gathering at their school’s flagpoles, praying for their school, friends, families, churches, and communities. Young people are encouraged to line up prayer support and help from their youth pastors and parents for this student-led event. You can find out more details at syatp.com.
We encourage you to have your students participate. If there’s anything our state and nation need right now, it’s more prayer. And next on that list would have to be unity. This is a great opportunity for your family to take part in fostering both.
Additionally, we want to encourage your students to participate in the annual “Bring Your Bible To School Day” on Thursday, October 5th. On that day, thousands of students across the country will share God’s hope and celebrate religious freedom by doing something simple, yet powerful: They’ll bring their Bibles to school and talk about it with friends! You can learn more about it atwww.bringyourbible.org.
Even if in some school classrooms the Bible and prayer are no longer incorporated into educational curricula, nothing is prohibiting individual students from praying and bringing their Bibles into their classrooms or from incorporating them into discussions with their classmates.
We hope you and your family will consider taking part in these two simple yet incredible opportunities.
