Student Life Spiritual Life

Chapel Overview

"Our lives are fleeting moments in which are found both the seeds of peace, unity, love and also the seeds of war, dissension, and indifference. When will we rise and awake to the desire to water and to tend to the seeds of peace, unity, and love? Who will dare?" - Jean Vanier, Tears of Silence

Chapel at Cornerstone Chrisitan School is just one of the distinctives of the education experience for our students and families, even if it may be more visible. However, the difference is not only meant to be a part of their K-12 experience - it is meant to be a greenhouse for world change beyond the walls and after they leave CCS halls.

Foundation:

K-5 Elementary Chapel

Over the course of these 6 years we focus on:

- Creating a fun and engaging chapel experience by nurturing involvement and interactive experiences in chapel.

- Teaching the Scriptures through exciting, inspiring, and compelling methods (story and sometimes activity based)

- Focusing on faith-building principles and over-arching Bible content (i.e. major characters, basic Christian practices, themes of the scripture, character of God)

Preparation/Integration

7-12 Middle School and High School Chapel

Over the course of these 6 years we shift more toward an integrating faith:

- How does the scripture speak to modern life experiences?

- What does the scripture teach us about the person of God, our humanity and our relationship to Him?

- What does the scripture teach us about the person of God, our humanity, and our relationship to others?

- What does it mean to live as a student of CCS, a citizen of Moose Jaw, and a member of a global community under the Lordship of Jesus? (1 Peter 1:13-17)

- What does it mean to live as a student of CCS, a citizen of Moose Jaw, and a member of a global community with an identity rooted in Jesus Christ? (2 Cor. 5:14-21)
