Spiritual Emphasis Week 2018 Invitation to "AWAKENING"

UPDATE: Please note the new dates for our Spiritual Emphasis Week activities.

“Awakening" is the theme for The Dunham School’s annual Spiritual Emphasis Week, January 23-26, 2018. 

Each year, during Spiritual Emphasis Week, faculty, staff and students join together to focus their attention on a specific theme and Scripture verse. Intentional, inspirational activities across all divisions create opportunities for our Dunham community to experience the Lord anew. The 2018 theme “Awakening” comes from Ephesians 5:14: “Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” 

During this very special week, we hope that the Holy Spirit will use the worship leaders, speakers, activities and prayer times awaken hearts and minds to the greatness of our good God, transforming all who participate more and more into the image of Jesus Christ.
