Park Forest, IL–(ENEWSPF)– Students at Rich East High School gather for a student-led See You at the Pole. The gathering was led by the student leaders of Youth Alive, the student-led Bible study group at Rich East High School. The student leaders are Matt Phillips, Kat Caldwell and Sarah Field. The group is sponsored by Rich East staff member Kevin Kredens.

There were nearly 40 students who gathered around the flagpole at Rich East High School. They sang songs led by Matt Phillips who brought his guitar and led the group in praise and worship from contemporary songs to traditional hymns. The students gathered around the flag pole and also broke into separate prayer circles.

See You at the Pole™ is a student-initiated, student organized, and student-led event. That means this is all about students meeting at their school flagpole to pray—for their school, friends teachers, government, and their nation. See You at the Pole™ is not a demonstration, political rally, nor a stand for or against anything.
