Weekly Chapel Service
Our theme for the year
Psalm 23:4 - "Even in the darkest valley, I will fear no evil.”
Students are engaged in worship through singing, prayer, and internalizing messages presented from God’s Word. Most chapel assemblies include a guest speaker. Each semester seniors lead two chapels utilizing pre-rehearsed skits with Coach McPherson that have a biblical message of application. There are also 6 chapels on the calendar where the seniors will be separated from the 9th-11th grades. Mr. Bishop does an incredible service organizing these “Senior Chapels” to have a more personal impact on their lives, faith and leadership to try to prepare them for success in life after high school using the theme of Colossians 3:17 – “Whatever you do in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord.”
Middle School Chapels include student-led singing of traditional and contemporary spiritual songs, with a student or faculty member also reading scripture and leading prayer. Most chapel assemblies include a guest speaker. Occasionally one of our own coaches or teachers speaks, or even one of the students. Each semester two chapels are scheduled to be entirely student-led under the oversight of Mr. Barnett. The format for these vary, but many present lessons through created videos on their IPADs of student narrated and reenacted bible stories.
These precious worship times can involve a variety of ways for the children to think about and experience God throughout the year, and the one that is always most meaningful to parents and visitors is hearing these youngest Eagles sing! Mrs. Estes does a phenomenal job leading the youngest Eagles in learning new songs and developing a love for God and heart for worship. Anytime you visit you will observe them bringing their bible to read and be engaged during the lesson. This year they will be studying stories of Christians’ faith in action from the Book of Acts.
