Must I be a member of the Church of Christ to attend?
No, Lipscomb is open to families of all denominations and religious backgrounds.
Why daily Chapel?
Because we think it’s important to daily reflect on the one who made us all. It is a special moment when the entire upper, middle, or lower schools stop each day to confess Jesus as the Lord of our school and worship him. Daily chapel is a life-giving time to our school and practicing it as a discipline blesses the lives of students and faculty alike.
Why daily Bible?
We think the Biblical story gives ultimate meaning to our lives. Thus, to live as a part of God’s continuing story, it is vital to know the beginnings of our story. It is most important to know the one whose name we wear, Jesus Christ. The men and women who teach Bible at Lipscomb Academy consider it a great honor and many say it is the best part of their day. Teaching our students the Bible and watching their faith develop before our eyes is a holy process and a high honor.
Are Bible and Chapel the only spiritually minded things you do?
By no means. Other spiritual elements include; service projects, service clubs, mission trips, and personal counseling.
