STUDENT WORSHIP

Every Wednesday 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, you 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 held in locations below unless a change is noted.

Worship Highlights:

SPIRITUAL EMPHASIS DAYS

Special time is set aside throughout the year for our students to focus on God and their relationship with Him. Middle school has a spiritual emphasis day each fall and spring. The day is held off-campus to give students specific God-focused time. In high school they have a spiritual emphasis week each spring that helps to remind all of us that God is the priority. The day is always brought to a close with a time of prayer and reflection where students and staff huddle together in small groups pouring their hearts to God and each other.

Chapel Band

As part of curriculum, students in grades 8-12 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.
