You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. –John 15:16
Pre-K and Kindergarten Chapel is offered weekly and is a time of worship and fun. It teaches biblical truths on their level and prepares young students for upper grade chapels. Middle school students and their teachers lead this special worship time. By presenting a Bible story, skit, and activity related to the monthly theme, Middle School students grow in leadership skills and their spiritual lives as they interact and pray with younger students.
The weekly Elementary Chapels are designed to encourage the students to worship and praise God. Music specifically chosen for younger students and lessons from teachers and guest speakers teach biblical truths on their level. Developing Christ-like character and nurturing spiritual growth are the goals of elementary chapel.
Upper School Chapel for grades 6 - 12 are focused on worship through music and the teaching of God's Word. Students lead prayer and songs and guest speakers bring the scripture message. Throughout the year we involve more students in the planning and presentation of our chapel time which provides discipleship opportunities and develops leadership skills. We believe greater growth occurs when students are investing and allowing God to use them among their peers rather than just being a participant from the seats.
The middle and high school B.O.B. ("Bunch of Believers") group meets weekly. Teachers lead and disciple students through a concentrated time of prayer and Bible study.
P.I.C.K.L.E.S. ("People In Christ Kindly Loving Everyone's Soul") meets quarterly and is a fun time for students across all grades to interact together for prayer and games that teach biblical truths. Students also work together in service projects such as Operation Christmas Child, food drives, and aiding the community.
See You at the Pole, ACSI Day of Prayer and observance of the National Day of Prayer are opportunities for ACCA parents and friends to gather with us for prayer.
Prayer is a big part of life at ACCA. Whether it's teachers praying with students individually, students praying with one another, or praying as a group, ACCA disciples students in the importance of talking with God about all things. "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God..." –Philippians 4:6
Spiritual Renewal Week
Mid-winter, elementary, middle and high school students take a step back from the regular routine of school and take time to reflect on their spiritual lives. Messages focused on a central theme are shared by area pastors and guests. Concentrated times of prayer and bible study led by teachers and speakers lead middle and high school students into a deeper relationship with the Lord Jesus. Elementary students have their own special time with area pastors and teachers.
We believe that students can serve the Lord at any age. Whether it is visiting the elderly in nursing homes, baking cookies for local law enforcement, filling shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child, raising money for local relief agencies or doing food drives, ACCA students of all ages are given opportunities to put their faith into action. Students grow in faith and confidence as they become the hands and feet of Jesus by serving others.
I love ACCA because it is a place to learn, and get good, Christian advice from my family away from home!
