Students from Taylor Mill Christian Academy led out in the worship service on October 22, 2016, hosting guest speaker Ignacio Silverio, aka “Pastor Nacho,” from the Madison Campus. Students composed, prepared for, and delivered the platform duties and preliminaries, including announcements, children’s story, song service, Scripture, special music, introduction of the speaker, and everything in between. They also planned and decorated for the fellowship meal following the service. One of the highlights of the service was a special tribute to Tom Bentley, pastor of the Taylor Mill Church in Taylor Mill, Ky. The students created a study guide to look very similar to one he would typically have for his sermons. They led the congregation to discover biblical texts that highlighted how to honor spiritual leaders. The pastor and his wife then received a card, a gift ,and flowers for Julie Bentley. The majority of the program was composed by the students themselves, and while intended to be a blessing for the congregation and a thank-you for the steady support given to the school, students couldn’t help but be touched in their own hearts as well.
“Education Sabbath was extremely emotional in every way. The kids did a good job carrying out the jobs of the platform duties. We were impressed with the praise team and the other duties the kids performed. The sermon really touched me on a personal level; it felt like he was talking to you and he knew you. I have to say, this last Sabbath was one of the best.”
