Chapel programs are led by Rev. Monique McBride, Pastor of Schools and Families, and members of the CCS community. CCS Chapels are weekly opportunities for the CCS community to gather, worship, learn different Bible stories and celebrate the accomplishments of students. Chapel is held in the Sanctuary at 8:45am (PK2-K on Wednesdays; First - Fifth Grade on Fridays.) All students will gather at least once a month for a combined Chapel time. Please see the Parent Portal for a link to this year's schedule. Parents and guests are invited to attend and sit in the area behind students.
Each child's birthday is recognized during Chapel the week of their birthday. Summer birthdays are recognized at the end of the year. Students may present a commemorative book to the school in honor of their birthdays or on honor of other people. Please contact Gemma Mursell
if you wish to purchase a library book for this purpose.
Grade Level Chapel Performances
Every grade level has a designated day once yearly to conduct Chapel for the student body in a special way. This Chapel is organized by the classroom teachers and performed by the students. It gives students an opportunity to perform in front of their peers and parents, showcases their Biblical knowledge, and promotes confidence in students by giving them public speaking opportunities and leadership roles.
The schedule and theme for Grade Level Chapels is as follows:
- September - Third Grade - The life of Paul through scripture and songs
- October - Student Council & Coach Sallade - Red Ribbon Week
- December - Fourth Grade - The Story of Christmas
- February - Second Grade - Characters of the Bible
- April - First Grade - Veggie Tales story
- May - Kindergarten - Fruits of the Spirit
- May (Final Chapel of the year) - Fifth Grade - A Farewell Chapel related to the school year theme
