Weekly Chapel Service
Our theme for the year
Psalm 37:5 - "Commit your way to the LORD; trust in Him, and He will act.".
We involve our students using their vocal gifts to lead the music portion of the worship. They do a phenomenal job and make a positive impact on the chapel experience.
A small portion of our chapels are entirely student-led, primarily by Junior and Senior groups.
Most of our chapel services include a guest speaker. Some of the speakers scheduled this year include: Patrick Chappell, Robert Cook, Jeremy White, Mike Shelton, Marc Jones, Tim Brown, David Estes, Scott Huddleston, Dr. Bob Fisher, Chuck Frazier, Jason Allison, Chris Smith, Kelly Farmer, Tom Riley, Aaron Johnson, T.J. McCloud, Jon Hazelip and Jason Pagel.
Mrs. Torrez, our art teacher and small-group leader for the girls, is planning to share some of her experience visiting Israel in either the third or fourth week.
There are also 6 chapels on the calendar where the seniors will be separated from the 9th-11th grades. The principal will be using these to have a more personal impact on their lives, faith and leadership.
We also involve our younger students in leadership roles for chapel. Middle School Chapels include singing traditional and contemporary spiritual songs, with students reading scripture and leading prayer. A small number are scheduled to be entirely student-led under the oversight of Mr. Barnett. The format for these vary, but many present Bible stories and lessons through skits prepared and performed by the class.
A variety of speakers will also share messages, including several local preachers and youth ministers. Occasionally one of our own teachers or coaches speaks. Several of the men scheduled for High School (listed above) will also speak in the earlier Middle School Chapel.
