The chapel service at Menaul School follows the form of worship in the Presbyterian tradition

There is a reason for what we do and why we do it the way we do it. First, it is God who takes initiatives in our relationship with God. God gathers us in as a community to come into God’s presence, to receive the Word for our spiritual nourishment. We then respond to God with songs, prayers, and the sharing of our community life happenings. Finally, we are sent into the Word to live out the message we’ve been given, encouraged and empowered. Sea La Luz!

The whole community comes together every Tuesday from 12:40PM to 1:20PM. This year, we are starting the weekly Community Chapel in Hart Park. The 8th grade students in the World Religion class are invited to serve as liturgist, leading the community in worship. The students participating in the “A Year with the Bible” will also assist from time to time.

Student B:
The Scripture passage today is from the Hebrew Bible, Jeremiah 17: 7-8. I’ll read in the the Common English Bible translation. This is our theme Bible verse for this school year.

Happy are those who trust in the LORD,
who rely on the LORD.
They will be like trees planted by the streams,
whose roots reach down to the water.
They won’t fear drought when it comes;
their leaves will remain green.
They won’t be stressed in the time of drought
or fail to bear fruit.

The Message: Mr. Lindsey Gilbert
