Inside Education: Liberty Christian students celebrate Christmas

All of Liberty Christian’s more than 1,300 students celebrated Christmas together in a school-wide assembly on Dec. 9.

From enjoying two videos that creatively told the Christmas story to singing with the student choir “Joy to the World,” “Angels We Have Heard on High,” “Silent Night,” and “O Come, All Ye Faithful,” students from preschool to high school took time to worship and ponder the true meaning of Christmas. Even preschool students sang a song for everyone titled
“Mary Had a Baby.”

“Not every school can say, ‘Merry Christmas,’” said Campus Pastor Chris Searcy. “Yet it is because of Christmas that God made a way for us to be saved in His Son, Jesus.”

Searcy described the story of the candy cane, how a candy maker in the 1800s created a candy that when held one way looks like the shepherd’s staff as described in Psalm 23, and turned the other way looks like the shape of a “J,” the first letter in Jesus’ name. He also said that the stripes of red on the candy cane display the verse in Isaiah 53 that says, “By His stripes we are healed,” referring to the death Jesus endured, taking on the sins of the world.
