As a ministry of First Baptist Church Mt. Pleasant, CCPS is dedicated to the furtherance of the gospel and to discipleship.
At Coastal Christian Preparatory School, “Christian” is not just a part of the name. We truly do seek to honor Christ and give glory to God in everything we do. The Bible is so engrained in the culture of the school that students will learn about Jesus in Math, Science, History, English, and any other class that they may have the chance to take during their time at CCPS. There are also several other ways that we improve the spiritual life of the students here at Coastal:
Students at CCPS paricipate in Bible Study. Bible Studies are focused on cultivating a Biblical worldview, equipping students to study the Bible for themselves, and encouraging students to apply Biblical principles to the situations of life.
Chapel services play a large role in the CCPS experience. Our 2K-4K students engage in exciting Bible stories and celebrate through worship and song. 5K Kindergarten – 8th Grade students meet each week to worship Christ in chapel. This time of chapel is designed to let students worship corporately, encounter the gospel repeatedly, and reflect on Scripture thoughtfully. Our students use journals to record their thoughts and feelings at the end of every chapel (prompted by a reflection question or two from the speaker). We periodically have Small Group Chapels, where students break out into small groups to discuss their responses over the last several weeks.
Our students are presented with many opportunities for missions and service throughout the school year. Each grade chooses a service project, mission, or charity to support throughout the year, and students are encouraged to raise money, pray, and physically serve in different capacities. We also seek to partner with FBCMP in some of their outreach events throughout the year. Some organizations we’ve supported in the past are Toys for Tots, Habitat for Humanity, Operation Christmas Child, Water Mission, FBCMP Homeless Ministries, and the Lowcountry Food Bank.
