This year’s student council theme at Smithville Christian High School is “Unity.”
Based on Ephesians 4:3, the theme encourages each of us to work toward a unity that honours God, said Hailee Boks, a member of student council. That means laying aside our pride and selfishness and honouring each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
“We need to look beyond what sets us apart from each other and look to who calls us together,” Boks said, challenging each person to think of someone who we find difficult and “try to be nice to that person, be kind to them” this week. “Find what is good about that person and hang on to that.”
A student praise team led in worship with “The Stand,” “This is Amazing Grace,” and “Brother.”
This year’s student council leadership is:
Noah Boks, president
Christine Vermeer, secretary
Gemma Ricker, secretary
Brendan Masselink, vice-all
Hailee Boks, media guru
Owen VanHuizen, athletics liaison
Mark Sharobim, activities liaison
Ephesians 4:3 "Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace."
