March 2018 News

Special Upper School Chapels

Trinity’s Upper School held two special chapels in March to address the recent school violence across the country.

On March 14, 2018, Trinity’s Upper School Chapel service dealt with school violence in our nation and allowed students, parents, and faculty to mourn with the victims. Those in attendance also divided into 17 groups to pray specifically for each victim in the recent shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Robert Cunningham, senior pastor at Tates Creek Presbyterian Church, spoke about how Christians are called to handle cultural issues like this and how we can frame the conversation with our children, families, and others in the community.

On Wednesday, March 21, Rev. Cunningham and apologist Lindsay Brooks moderated a town hall style meeting. Students submitted questions in advance about how we should respond to the tragic events that have taken place this year.
