Abundant life is the foundation of PBS and spiritual development is woven throughout several facets of Middle School life. Middle school students and faculty attend chapel each Tuesday. The chapel program is designed to be a time of worship, praise and the study of God’s word. The chapel program is enhanced by a bi-weekly devotional and worship time as part of the advisory program. Chapel worship, as well as group Bible study and devotionals, are often student-led allowing students to develop their leadership skills.
Understanding that middle school can be a difficult time for students middle school occasionally offers gender separate chapels with topics targeted to meet students’ needs. Another facet of our spiritual development program is our annual grade level retreat. Retreats in 5th and 8th grade are designed to allow students to deepen their relationship with Christ while retreats in 6th and 7th grade are focused on service.
Our 7th and 8th grade students serve our community by completing three service hours per semester. This allows our students to be the hands and feet of Christ while also preparing them for the High School requirement of ten hours.
