A Wonderful Easter Chapel

Student-council led Easter chapel on April 5th during the Spiritual Life live session. Students read scripture, we heard the testimony of a staff member, had reflection through music, and did fun activities together. This tradition has become a not-to-miss event and is always one of our favorite shared experiences of the year. For information, feel free to contact Samantha Farinacci, sfarinacci@oakschristian.org.
