First priority rally motivates students

On October 2nd, First Priority hosted a Worship Rally in the cafeteria. With the help of two churches in our community, First United Methodist and Dogwood Grove Baptist. The churches provided food and drinks for all who attended. 

After everyone was finished eating, the rally truly began. A group of people from Dogwood Grove led worship. Followed by Hannah Burk singing and playing her guitar. Everyone did an outstanding job getting the mood set for hearts to be opened and healing to take place in the lives of students. 

The most touching part of the rally was hearing testimonies from different people who have all experienced different things. Testimonies from three people were given, junior, Janie Gray, freshman, Hannah Locks, and teacher, Tena Niven. The message was given by Jaye Locks, Youth Pastor at Spring Creek Cumberland Presbyterian church because Coach Niven was suffering from laryngitis. 

Janie Gray, a junior and a member of First Priority said “ The worship rally turned out really well! I was excited to see such a great turn out and many lives changed during our time of worship. It was so uplifting to see people from all walks of life in our school come together to worship one God and just praise him wholeheartedly. I can’t wait to do it again!

By the end of the rally there wasn’t a single dry eye. It was very emotional yet so motivating. Thank you to everyone who made the worship rally possible!
