Trinity Lutheran School welcomes students and families of all faiths.
During chapel, we hear from God through scripture, song, prayer, reflection, and blessing. Scripture is read by members of the student body, and our acolyte corps is made up of our 8th grade students, with younger students invited to volunteer throughout the year.
Family members are warmly welcomed and encouraged to attend chapel with their student. Chapel services are held every Wednesday morning in the sanctuary.
The chapel schedule is as follows:
8:15-8:45: for Grades 3-8
8:45-9:15: for Grades PK-3 – 2
Fruits of the Spirit
Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-Control
On the first Wednesday of every month we hold a chapel service for the whole school to focus on a particular Fruit of the Spirit. This virtue becomes a theme for the month in both classroom and community.
Every week during chapel we take intentional time to pray for and bless our students and staff who are celebrating birthdays during the week. The student body sings “Happy Birthday” and the student or staff member of honor receives a blessing.
The Acolyte Corps—consisting of the Crucifer, Torchbearers and, when the occasion warrants, the Bible Bearer—serves during Chapel and special worship services. The Middle School faculty chooses rising eighth grade students who demonstrate reverence, respect and responsibility. These qualities are nurtured, along with leadership skills, throughout the year as the servers assist in leading the worship service. In addition, chapel servers are instructed on the fine points and significance of their historical and traditional duties, and they participate in all chapel and worship events.
Being chosen as a server is considered an honor for these students as they strive to live up to these ideals and to share them with other students, through volunteer servers chosen by the Upper School teachers and through special services such as the Lessons and Carols service at Christmas and Stations of the Cross at Easter. This tradition of community fellowship and worship is a valued and integral part of Trinity family life.
