Chapel

The weekly Chapel service is designed for students to take time to corporately worship God and to be challenged in their Christian faith by those in our community. At the start of each Chapel we declare three identity statements. (1) I am not the point. (2) I am not alone. (3) I am a child of God. These reminders drive us toward humility, unity, and love.

Chapel topics can be divided into two distinct groups: (1) Discipleship and personal Christian development (internally focused) and (2) Global awareness and the spiritual and physical needs of the greater community (externally focused). Chapel speakers consist of local and global Christian leaders and ministry directors, missionaries, and CHS faculty members and parents.

Past Chapel speakers include:
  • Kofi Hagan, Director, World Vision Rwanda
  • Cliff Knechtle, Pastor/Christian Apologist
  • Rob Morris, President of Love 146
  • Lamont Hiebert, nationally renowned worship singer-songwriter

Pastors and youth leaders from the following local churches have led recent Chapel services:
  • Black Rock Church
  • Calvary Church
  • VOX Church
  • New Life Assembly of God

John 20:19-20
19 On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” 20 After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.
 
The peace and presence of Christ turns fearful disciples who are stuck in hiding into joyful disciples ready and willing to be sent out! This passage speaks to the reality that disciples will find themselves dealing with insecurities and fears, and yet Christ meets us in those moments and redirects us. Amazingly, it is when the disciples see the violent scars on their Savior’s body that they are filled with joy. Three days earlier, those marks brought death, but now they bring life. We boast in Christ and him crucified! This gospel grounding is the only empowerment for living life on mission for Christ.
