Students rally in National Prayer initiative
By Ken Stanford Staff
North Georgia Christian School students participated in the nationwide See You At The Pole prayer initiative Wednesday morning.
FLOWERY BRANCH - Middle and high school students at North Georgia Christian School (NGCS) rallied for prayer this morning at 7:40, as a part of the national See You at the Pole (SYATP) movement, one of several See You At The Pole events planned in the Gainesville area.
The Gainesville/Hall County Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) sponsored 21 such gatherings that were planned at schools in the Banks and Hall County school systems and Gainesville School System.
The annual event - which encourages students to gather around the flag pole at their school - is held nationwide each year on the fourth Wednesday in September.
Elizabeth Wethington of Gainesville, an 8th grade student at North Georgia Christian School, said afterward that “It is a privilege to pray for our country.” When asked why this is important, she replied, “Because not a lot of our leaders are praying for our nation.”
In NGCS’s first year on its Flowery Branch transitional campus, the students gathered as small groups in the athletic field adjacent to the school’s new middle and high school building in lieu of a flag pole.
“It is a good time to gather and pray for our country,” conveyed senior Sam Love of Hoschton. “God knows what’s best for us, and he will provide.”
