OCS Chapel Overview
OCS Chapel Program:
OCS chapel is the heartbeat that moves the spiritual lifeblood of our school community.
It exists for the purpose of corporate worship to reaffirm our commitment to God and each
other. Chapel serves to teach and remind us that we are here to glorify God in truth, unity,
inspiration, and encouragement.
OCS CHAPEL MISSION STATEMENT:
The mission of OCS chapel is to provide a worship experience which cultivates
interdenominational unity, inspiration, encouragement and truth.
At the core of the Gospel of Christ is redemption. This quality --- “making right” --- will compel
our worship experiences to build strong relationships in the student body and staff. This
harmony is created when we recognize and respect the differences of the many
denominations represented at OCS, and pursue the fundamental issues that we affirm as
“… for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of
Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a
mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.”
Inspiration comes in many forms. We recognize that people are inspired in many different
ways. Inspiration is stimulating the emotions to feel, it also provokes the mind to think. We
are to be transformed as children of God by the renewing of our mind (Romans 12:2).
Therefore the chapel program must not shrink from an obligation to inspire with content and
spiritual substance. “...love the Lord God with all your heart, with all your soul and all your
mind.” Deut. 6:5
The OCS chapel program encourages and fosters the glory of Jesus Christ. It is not
enough to encourage the individual student toward self fulfillment and personal gratification.
Biblical encouragement is based on authenticity, freedom, and greater love for God and
In a personal sense the OCS chapel program can present a Biblical message of refreshment.
How does God comfort a person?
Promises (His Word)
Bible classes tend to be intellectual with academic accountability. The chapel program will
strive to create a more relaxing, “softer” approach to feeding the soul and nourishing the spirit.
The chapel program will pursue discipleship and equipping areas not done in the classroom.
“Sanctify them in truth: thy word is truth.” John 17:17
Student Responsibilities in Chapel:
A student enrolled at Oklahoma Christian School accepts the responsibility of participating in
the OCS chapel program. Students are to engage Chapel as a significant experience in their
whole person development while attending OCS. In keeping with the mission of OCS, the
chapel program will be held as a part of the required curriculum. Attendance is required.
Chapel services are held weekly.
We encourage parents to follow up these activities with a question-and-answer session at
home. This session can serve as an extension of what the teachers are doing to provide the
students with extra training in using the Bible.
