Chapel Reflection  

5/10/17 - Mr. David Colonna

This week’s chapel was led by Mr. Robbie Kuschel and Mrs. Shannon Kuschel.  Mrs. Kuschel has worked at Norfolk Christian in numerous roles related to counseling students for the past five years.  Mr. Kuschel is a licensed counselor for the students at Regent University. Chapel began with a combined time of worship followed by gender separate discussions led by the Kuschels. Mrs. Kuschel spoke to the female students about how to present themselves on social media, the problem of pornography in our country, and other issues related to the internet that impact their Christian lives.  Mr. Kuschel spoke to the male students about the problems that result from pornography and gave practical steps to take if a student is addicted to pornography. Students are encouraged to schedule follow up conversations with the Kuschels or other teachers about what they heard in chapel on these very important topics. 

Looking Forward: Next week will be our Spring Spiritual Emphasis Week.  We will have services on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 2-3 p.m. on the theme “Drive On.”  The goal of these services will be to encourage students to press into their faith as they enter the summer break.  We will have different speakers each day, and a guest band will lead worship on one of the days as well.  

5/3/17 - Paul Kastner

Worship today was led by Weston Dove, Virginia Hobbs, Will Rodriguez, Mr. Oberdorfer, Josh Laderer, and Isabelle Tan. We sang “The Lion & The Lamb” and “Resurrecting.” The special question and answer session was led by the Bible teachers: Mrs. Wetzel, Mr. Gyorfi, and Mr. Colonna. The three most-asked questions were: why pray if God already knows what He is going to do, what will heaven be like, and why is it that we must give all the glory to God.

The common mindset is that prayer is like a wish list we send to God, but it’s much more than that. It’s our lifeline to heaven. We were created to have a relationship with God, and the key to relationships is communication. By communicating with Him, we allow God to align our thoughts and action with His. It is also how God reveals His thoughts to us.

Heaven is a promise that God will complete the restoration process He began with Jesus. When we think about Heaven, we should think about what the Garden of Eden was like. It is a new creation where we will live as we were fully created to live: doing fulfilling work in communion with God. A sub-question of this topic was whether or not those who were unable to accept Christ (either due to being alive before Christ or being too young to understand what a relationship with Christ means) go to heaven. The dominant view is that God holds us accountable to that of which we are aware.

When we glorify God, we put His beauty on display as we receive the character traits He extends  to us. These characteristics include His kindness, compassion, and love. We acknowledge that He is God. Glorifying God is celebrating the power and love that are inherent to Him.

4/12/17 - Paul Kastner

Today’s chapel was special. As we wrap up Lent and Holy Week begins, we were led in worship by Mr. Oberdorfer, Weston Dove, Elizabeth Alexander, Will Rodriguez, Jordan Rickman, and Isabelle Tan. We sang “Resurrecting” and “Your Glory.” Voce Deus, our school choir, sang a special presentation of “In Christ Alone.” The guest speaker was Ron Righter, our new athletic director. He spoke about events that led to the reason why Christians can live free from sin and shame. These events include Jesus driving out dishonest merchants in the temple, Jesus’s betrayal by Judas, the mock trial of Jesus Christ, Jesus’s scourging at the hands of the Romans, the conversion of the thief who was crucified next to Jesus, and most importantly, the Resurrection itself. The true significance of the Resurrection is that it is the pillar for our faith. Without a Resurrection, our sin and guilt still remain; man is still doomed to experience a second death completely devoid of God’s presence. We are fortunate indeed that Jesus did rise from the dead.

4/5/17 - Ali Sherrill

Chapel worship today was led by sophomores Virginia Hobbs and Elizabeth Alexander and junior Carson Coale. The speaker was NCS dad and the girls’ varsity basketball coach, Trent Norman. His message focused on John chapter 8. He pointed out the differences between those whose inheritance is that of Abraham with those whose is of Satan. He challenged the student body to examine the character of Abraham, someone who was obedient, faithful, and feared God, versus Satan’s character, someone who was prideful, and disobedient.  Mr. Norman emphasized that our actions reveal which side of the ledger we are on.  He challenged us to determine whether our actions reflect someone who is following in the footsteps of Abraham (and Christ) or in the footsteps of the Devil. It takes a leap of faith and then effort to build a relationship with Christ. If we align ourselves with Christ, we will be ready to receive him and dwell with him forever.
