Chapel Team Starts Ministry to Serve the Homeless

Each semester, Phoenix Christian Preparatory School offers high school students the opportunity to join Chapel class, where students are given the opportunity to become leaders on campus.

Students in the Chapel class are responsible for planning separate weekly chapel services for the elementary, middle school, and high school student bodies.

Known as “the Chapel team”, these students take ownership of every aspect of each service, including running Powerpoint slides, giving announcements, leading prayer, finding and scheduling speakers, and determining the theme and Bible readings for that day.

The Chapel team also develops lesson plans and leads Bible studies for their high school peers every Thursday after school.

PC Senior Miriam Murray, a four-year member of the Chapel team, states, “Chapel team has taught me leading is about serving and encouraging those around me.”

Beyond cultivating leadership on campus, Phoenix Christian teaches students to be leaders in their community. This semester, the Chapel team will embark on a new journey of serving the local homeless population.

The Chapel team will be accepting donations of blankets, water bottles, gloves, Bibles, and non-perishable foods such as granola bars and dried fruit. Students will then go to the streets to personally deliver items to homeless members of our community.

Phoenix Christian Preparatory School has been located in the heart of Phoenix for almost 70 years. Our mission is to educate the minds, form the hearts, and equip the hands of students in a Christ-centered atmosphere.

If you would like to help the Chapel team in their endeavor, or donate any of the items listed above, please contact Michael Eriquez at meriquez@phoenixchristian.org.
