Spiritual Life

A major emphasis in Middle School at Briarcrest focuses on spiritual life. Weekly Chapel Programs are designed to give our students an opportunity to worship together. Generally, our Middle School Praise Band will lead the student body in 2-3 praise songs prior to the introduction of our weekly speaker. Each year, the Middle School choose a “theme” around which our speakers try to fashion their remarks.

List of 8 items.

  • Praise Band

    Our Middle School Praise Band, led by Michael Parsons, Skip Quinn, and Justin Pepper, allow students gifted in vocal and instrument music to display their skills in a manner that both glorifies God and helps lead others in worship.
  • Retreats

    Fall Retreats are designed to give our students opportunities (early in the school year) to meet new friends, to fellowship together with each other and with their teachers, to set goals, and to worship both individually and collectively.
