Psalm 105:4….. Look to the Lord and His Strength; seek His face continually.

Monday, November 28th, 2016 General Announcements Comments Off

November 18 Announcements

We can trace this historic American Christian tradition all the way back to the year 1623. After the harvest crops were gathered in November 1623, Governor William Bradford of Pilgrim Colony, “Plymouth Plantation” in Plymouth, Massachusetts proclaimed:

“All ye Pilgrims with your wives and little ones, do gather at the Meeting House, on the hill… there to listen to the pastor, and render Thanksgiving to the Almighty God for all His blessings.”

Some 150 years later the Congress of the United States proclaimed National Days of Thanksgiving to Almighty God many times throughout the following years. Then on November 1, 1777, by order of Congress, the first National Thanksgiving Proclamation was proclaimed, and signed by Henry Laurens, President of Continental Congress. The third Thursday of December, 1777 was officially set aside: “for solemn thanksgiving and praise. That with one heart and one voice the good people may express the grateful feelings of their hearts, and consecrate themselves to the service of their Divine Benefactor…”

Then again, on January 1, 1795, our first United States President, George Washington, wrote his famed National Thanksgiving Proclamation, in which he says that it is…

“…our duty as a people, with devout reverence and affectionate gratitude, to acknowledge our many and great obligations to Almighty God, and to implore Him to continue is… our duty as a people, with devout reverence and affectionate gratitude, to acknowledge our many and great obligations to Almighty God, and to implore Him to continue and confirm the blessings we experienced…”

We are thankful at Springwood for the Lord allowing our school to be blessed in so many ways. We trust all Springwood families have a safe and restful Thanksgiving week. Please be on the lookout for the End of Semester information to be delivered via US mail.

Happy Thanksgiving!!


FCA Prayer Breakfast

In all, 23 Springwood students traveled to Auburn this morning with their bus leaving Lanett at the early hour of 6:25 am.

Included in the FCA outing were Springwood international students from Hong Kong, Vietnam, Spain and China.  The Springwood FCA was joined by Mr. Keith Ray who serves as the Director for Camp Maranook in Lafayette.

Students from Springwood joined hundreds of other high school students from Opelika, Auburn, Phenix City, Lee Scott, Glenwood, Smiths Station and numerous other schools.

The morning worship program included praise music by the Highlands Worship Band, as well as inspiration from FCA Russell County Director Mitchell Dean and a keynote program given by Mr. Mayo Sowell who serves as the Next Steps Pastor at the Church of the Highlands main campus in Birmingham.

Former AU Linebacker, Mayo Sowell shared his testimony of how his life was turned around with his development of his relationship with his Lord and Savior.  Mayo Sowell, was a former Auburn University linebacker who was part of Tommy Tuberville’s 2004 SEC Championship-winning team.  The former championship linebacker had an NFL career with the Buffalo Bills cut short due to an ACL injury.  After his injury took place, he explained how he had chosen some of the wrong friends that resulted in him serving time in prison after he had finished playing football at Auburn.  Sowell told the students how he found hope in God while serving time in prison.  He found his relationship with God and vowed to devote his life to serving Him after leaving prison.

Sowell found refuge in the closest church — Church of the Highlands’ Grants Mill campus. Now, he’s an associate pastor there and uses his position to positively influence anyone who wants to hear his story.  Sowell encouraged the FCA youth with a story from his playing days for AU when the Tigers visited Tennessee with 100,000 plus fans screaming against him and his team.  He encouraged the students not to be fearful in sharing their faith just like he was told not to be scared when taking the field that day in Tennessee.  After the program, Sowell took a picture with the Springwood FCA Students promoting the FCA RISE theme this year from Joshua 1:9

Operation Christmas Child (Samaritan’s Purse)

Operation Christmas Child (Samaritan’s Purse) is a fantastic way to get involved in helping children around the world.  Every gift is an opportunity to share with boys and girls.  Help Springwood students pack boxes for needy children around the world. The SGA has divided up items and cost so that it is spread throughout the school.  The goal is to send 100 boxes.  The Elementary has pledged to bring items for 25 boxes.  As we go into the season of giving…give today.   CLICK HERE for items listed by grade.  Please have all items and money to the school by November 16 at 10am.

Thank you for your support.

Below is an excerpt taken from the website of Samaritan’s Purse:

The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) gives a clear picture of God’s desire for us to help those in desperate need wherever we find them. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, “Go and do likewise.” For over 40 years, Samaritan’s Purse has done our utmost to follow Christ’s command by going to the aid of the world’s poor, sick, and suffering. We are an effective means of reaching hurting people in countries around the world with food, medicine, and other assistance in the Name of Jesus Christ. This, in turn, earns us a hearing for the Gospel, the Good News of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

As our teams work in crisis areas of the world, people often ask, “Why did you come?” The answer is always the same: “We have come to help you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.” Our ministry is all about Jesus—first, last, and always. As the Apostle Paul said, “For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake” (2 Corinthians 4:5, NIV).

Operation Christmas Child (Samaritan’s Purse)

Operation Christmas Child (Samaritan’s Purse) is a fantastic way to get involved in helping children around the world.  Every gift is an opportunity to share with boys and girls.  Help Springwood students pack boxes for needy children around the world. The SGA has divided up items and cost so that it is spread throughout the school.  The goal is to send 100 boxes.  The Elementary has pledged to bring items for 25 boxes.  As we go into the season of giving…give today.   CLICK HERE for items listed by grade.  Please have all items and money to the school by November 16 at 10am.

Thank you for your support.

Below is an excerpt taken from the website of Samaritan’s Purse:

The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) gives a clear picture of God’s desire for us to help those in desperate need wherever we find them. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, “Go and do likewise.” For over 40 years, Samaritan’s Purse has done our utmost to follow Christ’s command by going to the aid of the world’s poor, sick, and suffering. We are an effective means of reaching hurting people in countries around the world with food, medicine, and other assistance in the Name of Jesus Christ. This, in turn, earns us a hearing for the Gospel, the Good News of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

As our teams work in crisis areas of the world, people often ask, “Why did you come?” The answer is always the same: “We have come to help you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.” Our ministry is all about Jesus—first, last, and always. As the Apostle Paul said, “For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake” (2 Corinthians 4:5, NIV).

Veterans Day at Springwood School

 

 

The faculty, staff and students at Springwood School were pleased host a Veteran’s Day program this morning held in the Boswell GymnasiumRetired Air Force Major General Johnny White served as our keynote speaker.

He had a wonderful message for the student body of Springwood.  He spoke about taking initiative, he spoke of William J. Crawford.

“A private in the US Army, 36th Infantry Division, World War II.  Under fire and pinned down he took the initiative to move toward a gun emplacement. After getting within a few yards of the gun and the Germans manning it, he was able to take out all 3 and his platoon was then able to advance forward.  After other battles Crawford was captured and was thought to be dead.  His father was awarded his Medal of Honor.  It was later found out that he was alive.  In the spring of 1945, Crawford and his fellow prisoners were liberated and he returned home.  He reenlisted in the Army in 1947, and retired in 1967 as a master sergeant.  He took a job as a janitor at the Air Force Academy in 1970.  The cadets were unaware of his past and largely ignored him – until one of them came across his name in a book about World War II.  When questioned he acknowledged that he had been awarded the Medal of Honor.  From that moment on he was a celebrity.  Over the years he mentioned to acquaintances that he wished he had received his Medal of Honor from a president, as most recipients do.  In 1984, he got his wish: Ronald Reagan, speaking at an Air Force Academy graduation, re-presented Crawford with his medal and extolled his heroism in front of the cheering cadets.”

The above excerpt was taken from the book “Medal of Honor” that Major General White donated to the Springwood School Media Center today.  It is “Portraits of valor beyond the call of duty”.  We truly appreciate his time and message to us today.

We believe this Veterans Day program is a great way for the administration and teachers at Springwood to help raise awareness among the student body to thank and honor all those Veterans who have served in our military during both wartime and peacetime. We all have a roll in serving our country.

Springwood had a great turnout of veterans this morning as we honored all that they have done to keep America FREE!
