CHAPEL

Grow in God's Love

Students attend a weekly chapel service led by either The Rev. Jack Alvey or Amanda Austin, the Children's Formation Director of the Episcopal Church of the Ascension. Chapel services are brief, child-centered, and embrace all children as God's children. Each chapel service focuses on a story from the Bible and the prayers we say to ask God to help us grow, learn, and play as we seek to be good friends, eager learners, and disciples of God. Each child receives a special birthday blessing during their birthday week, followed by everyone singing "Happy Birthday."

AEK Morning Prayer

Thank you, Jesus, for this day,

With time for work and time to play.

Than you for your grace and care,

Please be with me everywhere. Amen
