STUDENT WORSHIP

Every week, our students, faculty, and staff gather for a time of worship and a message from God’s Word. Chapels are held for preschool, lower school, middle school, and high school – each with grade-level appropriate speakers, messages, and music. Speakers include members of our own staff, as well as guest pastors, missionaries, and Bible teachers. Music is provided by our own chapel band students, faculty, and guest musicians.
 
Parents are encouraged and welcome to be a part of any of our chapel services. The times and speakers are listed below. Our only request is you please sit in the balcony, as our students fill the main floor. Preschool parents are welcome to join us starting in September to get younger students accustomed to chapels and chapel etiquette. Chapels are held in the locations below unless a change is noted.

VETERAN'S DAY CHAPEL 11/8/22

The annual, schoolwide Veteran’s Day Chapel is one of the most-anticipated events of the school year. Though protocols adjusted the format of this special chapel, we still gathered as a community to hear messages from special veterans in our MPCS family. We also enjoyed the annual salute to our veterans, with a live musical performance and a photo slideshow honoring more than 100 veterans within our school community. We thank all our veterans and active duty service men and women for their sacrifice and service! If you missed it, you can view the recorded video above!

CHAPEL VIDEO 9/20/22

MPCS Christian Life is excited to share a chapel video each week. The MPCS family is invited to experience this tradition at home. New videos will be posted here regularly.


WHAT ALUMNI SAY:

“Seeing Christianity in action through my interactions with the MPCS faculty was what really taught me how to walk in truth and carry out my purpose of expanding God’s kingdom, honoring God in my real life. As I was navigating my faith, my teachers supported and guided me, while praying for protection and blessings over my life constantly. Every day, I feel so blessed to have the foundational knowledge of the Bible that I have, because I know how to study and interpret the Bible on my own. Mount Paran also fully equipped me to be able to defend my faith to anyone at any time, while remaining kind and tolerant to others’ diverse beliefs.”

-B. Underwood '18

Worship Highlights:

SPIRITUAL EMPHASIS DAYS

Special days are set aside throughout the year for our students to focus on Christ and their relationship with Him. Middle school has a spiritual emphasis day each fall and spring, while high school is hosted in the spring. The events are often held off campus to give students specific Christ-centered time away from the distractions of school. Each event includes dynamic worship, engaging messages, small group time, and fun activities, all designed to keep Christ at the center. 

Middle School Spiritual Emphasis at NMC
Chapel Band

As part of curriculum, students in grades 9-12 may participate in Chapel Band. It is a tremendous opportunity for student singers and musicians to join together to lead worship with their peers in the middle and high school chapel services. There are auditions for this class, which meets in the LeFevre SoundLab recording studio as part of their curricular course load.
