LJHS Scripture Union meets on Thursday afternoons from 3:30-4:20pm in Mrs Kerr’s room. It is part of the Scripture Union NI organisation and participates in events organised by SU nationally. As its name suggests, Scripture Union is a Christian after-school club, based on the teaching of the Bible and encouraging pupils to learn more about and follow Jesus Christ.
Scripture Union at LJHS is open to all pupils, whether from a Christian background or not. As well as being led by staff and older pupils, we have a range of visiting speakers, from local church youth groups, NI-wide Christian groups (such as Crown Jesus Ministries) and missionary organisations.
Check out our Blog below to see what is happening in Scripture Union (SU) this year!
WEDNESDAY 24th OCTOBER
A team from Crown Jesus Ministries will be in Lurgan Junior High School during the week after the half-term break. On Friday evening, 9th November, they’ll be running a special event for all 11-14-year-olds – The 1Way Band will be playing, Paralympian gold-medallist swimmer Bethany Firth will be sharing her story and rumour has it that a teacher will face the Gunge Tank! Definitely NOT to be missed…
THURSDAY 18th OCTOBER
Michael Frazer, Youth Worker from Lurgan Elim Church, spoke at Scripture Union today and led in some creative prayer ideas. Pupils used different colours of Skittles to give thanks for people in their lives.
They prayed for friends, for themselves and that God would challenge them and help them to grow as Christians.
Pupils and Staff prayed about things that worried them and left them in God's hands.
THURSDAY 11th OCTOBER
