Chaplain's Corner
To all of our returning PACS families: Welcome Back!!!

To all of our new PACS families: Welcome…we’re so glad that you are a part of the Greater Wolverine Family!!!

If your Summer Break was anything like ours, it was really good, really hot, and really fast…but the new school-year is here, and we can’t wait to see all that God has in store for us!

Each week, this section of the Wolverine Weekly will provide updates on the spiritual components of Prince Avenue Christian School as well as glimpses into our weekly chapel services. Because we are such firm believers that the primary place for discipleship to occur is within our families (although it does most definitely take place within our churches and chapels), we want you to continue the conversations that are started in Chapel in your homes, cars, and around your tables. To help facilitate these conversations, each week in this section I will give a brief synopsis of our chapel services along with some quick discussion questions that will help you dive deeper into your student’s walk with God.

I hope that you know what an incredible honor it is to be able to partner with each and every one of you…thank you so much for allowing us to pour into your families. We are, without a doubt, your biggest fans and are here to help you in any way that we can!

Together,
Ben Wallis
Director of Spiritual Life
