Students Pray at DCS Flag Pole

Each year students around the globe gather at their school flag pole to pray for God’s blessing and guidance in the world. The event is called See You at the Pole and it happened this year on September 23rd. Prayers topically range from things like national leaders, local leaders, families, schools, and friends. At Decatur Christian this year, students met in several groups for fifteen minutes up to about half an hour. COVID-19 restrictions do not allow for groups of more than 50 at a time in one space. Gathering around our flag pole, or grouping together in the grass near the flag pole was easily done by adapting our group sizes. Middle school students met together first beginning around 8:15 am. Next to pray were the high school students. Then, elementary grades met either together with another class or two, or by grade level with their teacher. It was a great morning seeing our students pray and show care for others as they called out to the Lord.
