End of quarter tests and final exams – We are down to our final weeks of school!   Please pray for all of our students, staff and teachers as we finish up this school year with enthusiasm and determination to do our best.

Sports Day – Please pray for Travis Briggs and Lisa Fisher and their committee, as they prepare for this special outdoor event for our students on Thursday, May 31.  May God give us good weather and many volunteers to help make this a successful and fun day.

Faculty and staff transitions – We have several people leaving ICS this year. Please pray for these faithful servants as they move on from here to the next season of life. May God bless each one richly!  Pray also for the new teachers and staff who will be joining us in the fall.

Student Verse Recitation – Please pray for our students to be diligent to study and learn their Scripture verses well, so that these verses are truly hidden in their hearts for a lifetime. Also, please pray for those students who have taken on the challenge to recite 100 verses this year, for God’s help as they memorize.

Admissions – Please be praying over the summer for potential families who will consider our school for their children.
May God orchestrate the details for new students to be admitted and fill our classrooms for the 2018-19 school year.

High School Prayer Initiative – Please continue to pray for God to go before us as we seek to work out all of the details for the Immanuel Christian High School (ICHS).  May it all be for His glory, in His time and for His purposes!
