elementary chapel

Elementary chapel services are a highlight of each week. We provide opportunities for students to be instructed and challenged to study, learn, and obey God’s Word. The Bible is practical and applicable in every facet of life, and our students are taught and reminded that obedience to God’s Word is the key to God’s blessings.

Chapel each Wednesday provides our students and teachers with a dedicated time to worship our Lord and Savior by singing, acting out our monthly Biblical character trait and listening to Godly speakers. Chapel speakers come from among area pastors and others who are not only versed in God's Word, but understand how elementary students best receive God's Word. We desire our students to be directed to what Christianity should look like for them as they live Christ out on a daily basis. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 "All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work."

Christianity is alive to our students; it is not just about Bible classes and chapels. We strive to promote an atmosphere that teaches our students to want to love and live Christ out at home, school and play. This is... CALVARY!

secondary chapel

At CCS we believe that God is intensely committed to growing the faith of those He has entrusted to our care (II Thessalonians 1:3). One of the ways He grows us is through the practical teaching of the Word of God in our student chapels.  Our chapels are where the practical Bible teaching of God's Word shows our students where they are at and where they need to go (II Peter 1:3). Our worship is led by our student worship team and various pastors and youth pastors with a passion for growing student's in Christ. The pastors come and communicate God's Word every Wednesday during our chapel hour.  Students then have the opportunity to process that message in their Co-Gro's when they meet during the week. When students realize and experience God's faithfulness in their lives, and as that intersects with obedience to God's Word, lives begin to change. Like a fence that needs painted, the paint left in the can is useless, the power is in it's application. God's Word practically applied to a life results in more than just the transfer of information, it usually results in the transformation of a life. Chapels are just one more way that God uses to grow and change us more into the image of Christ. 

co-gro discipleship

Community: One the greatest desires that we have here at CCS for the Co-Gro’s is that they would be places where students can connect with one another and their Co-Gro leader.  This makes our larger student body “smaller”.  We want students to create and maintain powerful relationships and for us to have an avenue to invest deeper into their lives. The MS/HS student body is divided up into multi-grade groups of 8-10 students and faculty member as the Co-Gro leader. 

Discipleship:  Every week we will discuss/teach/study biblical principles/passages or questions developed from the previous weeks chapel message. A portion of our Co-Gro time will be devoted to some sort of application of the biblical truth to their life.

Co Gro’s are not class-room learning environments (all learning), nor is it a party (all play).  It is a place for students to form relationships with others and with God so that they can grow in their faith. It gives them the opportunity to form relationships with those more mature in their faith (a Paul), those they can do life with (a Barnabs), and those that they can invest in (a Timothy).  (II Timothy 2:2)
