The spiritual goal for Cornerstone Prep graduates is that they leave Cornerstone Prep with a biblical worldview. Chapel is one avenue we use to teach, engage, and reinforce this goal.
Cornerstone Prep chapels emphasize active, age-appropriate student participation in all areas to promote ownership and to model the diverse gifts in the body of Christ, emphasizing those elements of Christian faith which unify, rather than divide.
Chapel emphasizes putting faith into action in the “real world” to promote being in the world but not of it with firm rooting in the Scripture.
Scriptural Purpose of Chapel
- To provide opportunities for corporate and individual, age-appropriate praise and worship of God through a variety of creative expressions. (Psalm 150)
- To provide opportunities to learn about Christianity and the importance of having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, as well as the importance of spiritual growth. (Acts 8:26-40)
- To provide opportunities for both intellectual challenge and emotional response. (Matthew 22:37-38)
- To provide opportunities for applying biblical principles within and outside our school community. (James 2:14-26)
Chapels are regularly scheduled for Cornerstone Prep students. On chapel days, students wear their chapel shirt given at the beginning of the school year or semester. Occasional special chapels have extended times, announced in advance.
Students and faculty who are on campus for the class before and/or after chapel are to attend chapel. Parents are always welcome to attend.
