Chapel is held weekly in the Sanctuary of the Lower School (except on holidays) and in the multi-purpose room of the Upper School. At Chapel, speakers ranging from teachers, to parents, to staff of churches in the community provide a brief message. Music is often provided at the Lower School by music teachers featuring the hymn of the month.
At the Upper School, music is provided by a praise team of students who lead the staff and students in singing and preparing hearts for worship. There is also varied participation of students in roles of announcements, prayers, as well as special music on a regular basis. Chapel is also where students receive pillar award recognitions. Along with scheduled chapel services, teachers often begin the school day with a brief devotional, prayer, and/or recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.
See You at the Pole
“If my people pray…”
All around the globe, in every time zone, students gather at their flagpoles, praying for their school, friends, families, churches and communities. See You at the Pole is a day committed to global unity in Christ and prayer. All of our students, families and staff are invited to join in prayer for this annual event at both Lower School and Upper School campuses.
National Day of Prayer
Since 1952, the first Thursday in May has been recognized as the National Day of Prayer. The United States Congress asks people “to turn to God in prayer and meditation.” The President of the United States encourages all Americans to pray on this day. At Christ Covenant, the National Day of Prayer is observed in several ways. We eagerly anticipate a special chapel, where the pillars bow to reverence and patriotism. This chapel service dedicated to prayer is accompanied by special guests, speakers, and a higher level of student leadership. In addition to the events on campus, a group of CCS high schoolers lead a prayer at the county courthouse.
