Spiritual Life - Elementary
Weekly Chapel Programs
Northland elementary students participate in weekly Chapel services. Kindergarten and LEAP students worship together on Wednesday mornings from 8:05-8:45. Students in grades one through five worship together on Thursday mornings from 8:10-8:45. Chapels are student-led. Each week a different class is in charge of the services. Students lead the prayers, songs, skits, etc. Chapel is one of the highlights of the Northland elementary experience.
Elementary students are currently in their third year of supporting Living Water International. This group, established in 1990, exists to demonstrate the love of God by helping developing communities acquire clean water, and to experience “living water” -- the Gospel of Jesus Christ -- which alone satisfies the deepest thirst. The goal of our elementary students is to raise $5,000 to drill a water well in a needy community.
Each January, Northland elementary students collect canned goods for people in the local community who are in need. The food is donated to the MANNA pantry, an outreach program of one of the local churches.
Other class-wide and school-wide service projects emerge as the needs of the local community arise.
Each homeroom conducts daily Bible classes. Students come to know the Word of God by studying the Scriptures. Children “hide God’s Word” in their hearts by memorizing Scriptures each week. Both Old and New Testament concepts are taught.
Elementary Christian Council
Students in grades 3-5 who choose to serve on this Council are exposed to various ways of serving others and the organizational skills needed to complete large-scale service projects. Past school-wide projects organized by the Council have included a clothing drive for NAM, the “Souper Bowl of Caring” food drive, Pennies for Patients for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and a Teddy Bear drive for the Houston Police Department. Council students also spend time on campus doing various service projects in preschool and elementary classrooms. Council members are blessed to experience the gratification that goes into serving others in their community.
