Our theme for the year is John 13:34-35 - A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
Students are engaged in worship through singing, prayer, and messages presented from God’s Word. Most chapel assemblies include a guest speaker and occasionally one of our own teachers or coaches will speak to our students. Each semester, the seniors lead two chapels utilizing skits that have a biblical message of application. There are also six chapels scheduled each year in which the seniors have their own service led by our High School Principal, Brian Bishop to talk about faith and leadership and to prepare them for success in life after high school.
Most middle school chapel assemblies also include a guest speaker. Occasionally one of our own teachers, coaches or students will speaks. Each semester, two chapels are entirely student-led under the oversight of one of our teachers.
These worship times involve a variety of activities to help the children think about and experience God throughout the year. Students learn new songs and develop a love for God and a heart for worship. Elementary students bring their bibles to read and be engaged during the lesson. This year they will be studying the life of Christ and the Gospel of Luke. Students also have a weekly memory verse they learn in conjunction with the biblical focus for that week.
