Students begin every-day looking at the Bible and spending time together in prayer.
The chapel programs at Park Christian are designed to engage the entire student body. Through the teaching of the Bible and addressing relevant issues students encounter, our aim is to offer dynamic chapel services that develop our students into maturing followers of Jesus Christ.
Chapels include student-led worship, various testimonies, videos, student drama, and biblically sound teaching by speakers from the school, the community, and around the world.
7-12 chapels takes place every Thursday at 8:10 a.m. Elementary chapels take place on Thursdays at 9:10 am. We welcome you to join us.
Spiritual Emphasis Week is held each fall. The week consists of daily spiritual emphasis through class projects, listening exercises, service opportunities, Scripture memory, prayer gatherings, and extended times of worship.
Spiritual Emphasis Day is held in the spring. Kindergarten through 6th grade spend the day in small and large group experiences. Guest speakers, worship leaders, and activities fill the day. Grades 7-12 select from a variety of seminars addressing relevant life issues. The day begins and ends with special chapel services. All traditional classroom activities are canceled for the day.
Prior to graduating, each student is required to complete 80 hours of service. The Bible Practicum is designed to further increase the level of ministry understanding and competencies gained through the experience of volunteering within a church or community setting. At least 40 hours are to be devoted to the student's local church; God's primary tool for ministry.
Two days a year are set aside exclusively for community service – one day during Spiritual Emphasis Week in the fall and one day in the spring. Other days have been given to community service as needs arise in the general public (i.e. flood fight, spring clean-up, special community events). Annual participation in Fill the Dome – a student-led, community food drive, and Operation Christmas Child, an international effort to provide Christmas gifts to children around the world, are led by the student body.
All 7th and 8th grade students, some teachers and administration, and parent volunteers embark on a two-day retreat at an area Bible camp. The purpose of the retreat is to enhance class unity, set a spiritual temperature for the year, and inspire an individual passion for the Lord in each student. Group building exercises, times of worship, Bible teaching, games, contests, and tons of fun fill the two-day experience.
The Bible curriculum is designed to lead students in a progressive discovery of God's truth revealed in the Bible. Elementary students are intentionally exposed to the fundamental truths of Scripture and are engaged in its teaching through interactive experiences. Junior and Senior High students progress through a succession of classes beginning with Old Testament Survey and concluding with College Prep Theology.
