Part of what makes Green Park unique from other schools is regular worship. Parents, grandparents, family, and friends are welcome to join us in chapel worship each 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Wednesday each month. (First Wednesdays are reserved for small group devotions with Faith Families in classrooms.) When possible, Green Park will live stream chapel worship on Facebook.

Students assemble in the gym at 8:25am. Chapel begins at 8:30 and ends about 9:00. Worship leaders come from a variety of area churches including Green Park association churches.
