Spiritual Emphasis Week 2017

Spiritual Emphasis Week, known simply as SEW to those in the FRA community, is a tradition that can be traced back to the early days of our school history. SEW is a week that is set aside in early February that focuses on the spiritual growth of our students. Each year, students are exposed to various speakers and activities that are centered on the biblical SEW theme.

The highlight of the week for many students is the SEW Service Day on the final day of the week. The middle and upper school students partner with ministries and organizations throughout the city to serve the Nashville community. In the past few years, students have served with the Front Porch Ministry, Legacy Mission Village, GraceWorks, Feed the Children, Preston Taylor Ministries, Cross Point West Nashville Dream Center, Nashville Rescue Mission, Room in the Inn, King’s Daughter’s School, Operation Stand Down, Mercy Ministries, Richland Head Start, Second Harvest Food Bank, and St. Luke’s Community House. Students have served in many different ways – from packing and organizing supplies that will benefit thousands of lives to throwing a valentines festival for children and adults with developmental disabilities complete with games and karaoke. The SEW Service Day is a beautiful example of the love of Jesus in action in our city. We also hope it’s a way that Spiritual Emphasis Week doesn’t just affect our FRA students but those in the world around us. Spiritual Emphasis Week is a great FRA tradition that we hope gives students an opportunity to grow spiritually and also develop them with hearts to lead, serve, and live lives with purpose.
