CRISTA PRAYER WEEK – Fix Your Eyes on Jesus
CRISTA Ministries has set aside February 5-9 as a special week to focus on prayer.  Each campus will have several activities throughout the week, including a King’s Schools Prayer Walk on Tuesday, February 6 from 3:15-4:15pm.  Parents and students are welcome to join King’s faculty and CRISTA employees.  We will meet at the Prayer Clock by the high school   at 3:15pm.   Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.  Hebrews 12: 1-2
