Faith Formation

Home / Student Life / Faith Formation

Faith formation at Denver Christian School begins with the understanding that God loves us and desires a relationship with us.

While faith begins at home and is nurtured at church, we recognize the important role that our Christian school community plays in our students’ faith journeys.

Our Christ-centered approach to education develops the whole child to know, love, and serve God. Faith is woven through chapels and also in science class discussions about the complexity of God’s creation. We understand art and music as reflections of our creator God.  We honor God with our bodies by pursuing excellence on the athletic field.  Most importantly, we focus on treating each other with care and respect as fellow image-bearers of Jesus Christ.

We are a community united for one purpose:  to bring honor and glory to God in all that we do.

Chapel

Each Thursday, students gather by school to worship and learn more about God’s word, his world, and their place in it.  Chapels may feature student worship teams, speakers from local churches, classroom-led drama and songs, personal testimonies, service projects, and student or faculty-led prayer.

The elementary school gathers for worship at 8:30 a.m., the middle school at 9:15, and the high school at 10:00.  Parents are welcome to join us.

Faith Families

Once a month, our preschool – high school students come together for worship and service as Faith Families.  Faith Families include at least one student from each grade level.  They stay together the whole time they’re at Denver Christian. As seniors graduate, new students enter the family each year.  The seniors lead devotions and service projects, and intentionally foster a sense of belonging within their families. 

Spiritual Emphasis Theme

Each year, we choose a scripture passage that unifies our worship and learning.  We explore this theme in chapels and classroom worship and it provides a focus for the spiritual rhythms of our entire school community.  The spiritual emphasis theme for the 2020-2021 school year is from Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God.”
