Spiritual Life

Each teacher makes the spiritual growth of students a top priority. As followers of Christ, our teachers build each lesson and relationship on the truth of Scripture. In partnership with parents and churches, Westminster Christian School prayerfully and lovingly guides young lives to grow in faith and understanding. Within every activity students encounter the beauty, wonder, and grace of Jesus. Each student is led to respond and act upon the implications of being in relationship with a living and glorious Savior.

Chapel

Chapel forms an integral part of the Westminster Christian School experience. As a Christian community, we meet together on a weekly basis for worship. The middle school level meets on Wednesday mornings for 40 minutes. Chapels are led by a variety of guest speakers including, but not limited to, staff members, local youth pastors, parents, and local-area senior pastors. Typically, chapels center around relevant topics in students lives while integrating a passage from the Bible. Chapel is also a time of singing and prayer led by students who are uniquely gifted in the area of worship leadership. Everyone is invited to be a part of the chapel experience.

Homeroom chapel conversations at the middle school levels allow for ongoing student/teacher discussion of earlier chapel topics. All-school chapels are held at Christmas and Easter providing an opportunity to worship together as a full school community.

Homeroom Program

Homerooms build a uniquely strong student/teacher relationship as faculty provide support, care, and accountability to students outside of the classroom experience on a daily basis.

The mission of the homeroom program is to help students grow spiritually, intellectually, and socially by fostering individual, as well as community growth. The goal of the program is to help strengthen both student-teacher and student-student relationships, promote spiritual growth, help students utilize school resources, provide each student with an adult advocate, monitor students’ academic progress, and foster communication between the school and home.

Discipleship

The relationship between the student and the teacher, coach, or administrator is a critical factor in learning. The faculty and staff set an example for the student and equip students to put knowledge into action from a Christian perspective.

Westminster believes that the power of the gospel is to be lived out through authentic relationships. Authentic relationships are those that are rooted in what we are in Christ (justified), rather that in what we do (self-righteous). True Christian living results from an authentic relationship with God through Jesus Christ and proceeds from the heart.

Discipleship at Westminster Christian School is a comprehensive goal. There is no aspect of school life that is not impacted by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Discipleship is the act of leading others in what it means to be a follower of Christ. As students build meaningful relationships, learn through relevant lessons, train diligently, embrace the Gospel, serve selflessly, compete intensely, and perform passionately, they are being led by a faculty and staff that seizes every moment to help students grow in grace, love God, and love others for His glory.
