A theme for the year provides focus for the weekly or bi-weekly chapel programs. Whether starting with a book of the Bible or a topical theme, speakers challenge students with the word of God. In all things, the goal is that all members of the school community "be transformed by the renewing of your minds" (Romans 12:2). The chaplain guides the year-long chapel program for all grade levels, with support from faculty members, administrators, and occasional guests.
Upper School students participate in chapel weekly. Attendance is required, and promotion to the next grade is dependent upon satisfactory fulfillment of this commitment.Lower School students attend chapel twice a month in two separate services tailored to their ages (Grades K - 3 and Grades 4 - 6).
Advisory GroupsAs hearing without applying the word of God is unfruitful, students in the Upper School meet in advisory groups facilitated by a faculty member. In small single-sex groups, students discuss the chapel presentations and any other concerns that arise. Praying for one another and occasionally sharing lunch periods help students become knitted together as a community.
Chapel Music TeamStudents with musical and spiritual gifts are invited to participate in a chapel music team that leads the student body in songs of praise during chapel. Classic Christian hymns and contemporary worship music are used to express the many appropriate ways of approaching God in music. From time to time, Trinity's choral and instrumental ensembles present special offerings according to the season.
