Chapel

TK-2 Chapel and 3rd-5th Grade Chapel

The lower school meets once a week corporately for chapel. Chapel programs are led by the SouthLake teachers, geared toward the developmental age level of the students and focus on broad Christian themed topics such as Christians who have impacted the world, Christian missionaries and their personal stories, lessons from a particular book of the Bible or lessons connected to seasonal events such as Christmas/Advent, Thanksgiving, Easter, etc.

Middle School Chapel (Grades 6-8)

Middle School Chapel also meets once a week corporately. Unlike the lower school chapel, students begin to take a role in the development of chapel topics. Based on student input a "theme" is chosen yearly on which all chapels will be based. The first semester's chapels focus on the attributes of God and what it means to know Him in a way that is life changing. The second semester of the year will be looking at how we, as His people should live our life in light of the character of God.

Upper School Chapel (Grades 9-12)

Upper school students play a very active role in planning and contributing to our once a week chapels. The associate pastor of SouthLake Presbyterian Church presides over most chapels with guest speakers playing a major role.

SouthLake's student chapel band, leads high school students in praise songs. This semester, the Upper School theme is focusing on the Gospel of John while answering the question, "Who is Jesus?" Some of the past series/themes covered by the Upper School Chapel series include:

"Guard Your Heart"
"The Ten Commandments"
"The Gospel of Jesus Christ"

"...We are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ." II Corinthians 10:5

"The Mission of SouthLake Christian Academy is twofold. The first is to assist the Christian family by providing an education marked by a biblical worldview, academic excellence and affordability so that students are equipped to be salt and light for God's glory. The second is evangelical in scope, to present God's Word and biblical worldview daily to non-believers with the promise of God's redemptive plan, to be a force and voice for Jesus Christ that will resonate throughout non-believing families."
