The Student Chaplain Team hosted a night of worship and prayer in Brubaker Auditorium on Thursday night. The night included music from PowerHouse, United Voices of Praise Gospel Choir and the Kairos band. In addition to music, Acclamation Dance Ministry performed and students could even partake in foot washing. The event centered around Psalm 141:2, “May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.”
Just a little over a month after the horrific shooting in Parkland, Fl., a Maryland teen brought a gun to Great Mills High School. Seventeen-year-old Austin Wyatt Rollins brought his father’s handgun to school with intentions to use it on Tuesday morning; he shot his ex-girlfriend, Jaelynn Willey, 16, in the head. Willey will be taken off life support.
