The Chapel program is one of the oldest traditions at Rabun Gap.  The practical theology of Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School begins with an understanding that the teachings of Christ do not need insulation, but rather need to be practiced.  Thus, Rabun Gap emphasizes a fostering of the Christian faith.  Students with religious experiences outside the Christian tradition, as well as students who consider themselves non-religious, are welcome.

Anchored in the School motto, Work Study Worship, Rabun Gap’s Chapel is the center of the school’s spiritual life and community and the chief symbol of Rabun Gap’s affiliation with the Presbyterian Church.  Students take an active part in the worship services, working closely with the Chaplain, who leads worship and spiritual formation programs and is available to the entire Rabun Gap community, regardless of spiritual affiliation. 

Hiromi, '12 (Japan)

"In Bible class, we not only read the Bible but also have a lot of discussions which let us form our own theological opinions.  What I like most about this class is how sometimes, I would sit in a chapel service and hear a verse from the Bible that I studied in class.  Being able to understand the verse more thoroughly makes the whole chapel experience more meaningful."
