The highlight of our week
The heart of our mission is teaching students to love and know God. Every week, our student body gathers in the Worship Center for a time of worship. For our lower grades (Preschool to Grade 3), Children's Chaplain Sandy Simmons incorporates puppets and skits to share biblical truths. For upper chapel (Grades 4 to 12), Pastor Kainoa Valente challenges students to live out the message of Christ in their everyday life.
Combined chapels are held on special occasions such as Thanksgiving, Walkathon Day, and End of Year. Family members are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Chapel guests have included KCC missionaries, local pastors, Christian artists Jana Alayra and Junko, and gospel illusionist Michael Viloria.
What makes KCS chapels so special?
What a joy to watch students declare their faith in Jesus and follow his example of baptism!
Parents, grandparents, and friends are welcome to worship with us! Special bonds are formed between grade levels as upper elementary students assist preschool classes to chapel.
Fruit of the Spirit: Every month, we celebrate the "Fruit of the Spirit" for students in Kindergarten to 12th grade. Homeroom teachers select a "fruit," or characteristic, that is best reflected in each student. These characteristics are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).
'Ohana Award: The "Ohana" Award is presented to students in 4th to 12th grade after the end of each quarter. Classmates and the homeroom teacher select student(s) that best demonstrate respect, responsibility, problem solving skills, school pride, and a team spirit.
Principal's List: After each quarter, students in middle and high school are recognized for excellence in behavior and academics.
Comprised of high school students, the student worship team leads upper chapel worship on a monthly basis. They are part of the vision of equipping students to become the next generation of worship leaders!
From weekly chapel specials featuring music classes to students joyfully accompanying worship leaders, students take an active role in chapels! Mrs. Simmons also works with 4th and 5th graders who demonstrate an interest in serving in lower chapel through learning puppetry.
