Encounter

Encounter (Chapel)

Encounter is SWCHS's weekly chapel service, held weekly on Wednesday mornings.

During this time, we are hopeful that students can have a meaningful encounter with God in a context that varies from the classroom. The usual format for Encounter is a time of student-led worship, followed by a Christian speaker or artist. Parents are invited to join us each week for this time of community worship & fellowship.

Praise & Worship Band

Each week at Encounter, student musicians and singers lead worship for the Southwest Christian community. If you are interested in serving with the Praise and Worship Team and have the musical ability to play an instrument or sing, please contact the Praise Team Advisor, Brett Walters. Teams will rotate throughout the school year to play for Encounter.
