Each week our students have the privilege of attending a Chapel service geared specifically for their age groups. From the theme to the music to the speakers to the take-aways, we want our students to "get" Jesus in big ways.
How does God want us to respond to Him and each other? In Elementary Chapel, students learn the virtues that are close to the heart of the Father. Through interactive lessons and music, we worship the God who created us and longs for us to be close to Him.
Each month, our K-4 grade students focus on a different virtue and learn what it means to respond to God and others in that way. You can follow along with them on your student's grade level page under News.
God's love for us and His pursuit of us is RELENTLESS. His plan for us is to have abundant and eternal life in Jesus Christ. When we relentlessly pursue God with a desperate, determined heart, God will use us to the edge of our abilities and beyond. It's time to live like a champion for the Lord. It's time to be RELENTLESS!

MS Life Groups
Let's face it; following Jesus can sometimes be difficult. External influences like peers, the need for approval, and the media often make it hard to follow Jesus. Preteens face tough choices at school, online and with friends. What they need is boldness and confidence to follow Jesus, which can only come from God. Our 21 Middle School LIFE GROUPS support our students weekly through Bible study, discussion and prayer.
