Connection Week 2016

Connection Week is a time at the beginning of the school year for upper school students and faculty to connect with God, one another, and our community. The format is like that of a typical day camp.

Connecting with God

Each day we will meet for chapel, Get Real Groups, and God & I time to reflect on our theme for the week.Painting

Connecting with one another

Competition for the week will center around four teams comprised of Get Real Groups. Through large & small group interaction in various games and challenges, as well as intentional “connect & unwind” times for faculty and students, we hope to see relationships among faculty and students strengthened.

Connecting with the community

IMG_5305On Wednesday afternoon, we will bus upper school students and faculty downtown, where we will divide into teams to help the City of Greenville with a community service project. Through hard work and team effort, we hope to give back to our community in a tangible way that will be appreciated for years to come.
