Once a month on both Mondays and Thursdays (dates listed below) we are privileged to engage in chapel with the purpose to come together in prayer and praise for all that God has blessed us with in our lives and in our school. This is a time of devotion, sharing, praying and praising. We will have chapel for all students who are attending lunch for that day. Students will have time to eat lunch before attending chapel. All lunch monitors will help to oversee chapel in the sanctuary or outdoor grassy area. Parents and teachers are invited and welcomed to join us at 12:20pm! Chapel will consist of a special time of worship, celebrating and praying over our birthday kids, a short message speaking God’s truth into our kids, and an interactive scripture memory time.
