Students in high school recently attended the Worship Symposium at Calvin University in Michigan. This was a rich time in the presence of the Lord with ideas to worship and experience God in new and exciting ways.
Each week in chapel, students in all grades, PreK-High School help lead our community in praise and worship! Anyone is welcome to attend! Elementary chapel- 8:30 am. Middle School Chapel- 9:15 am. High School Chapel- 10 am.
WHAT DO WE OFFER?
Fifth grade students help lead our praise and worship songs for chapel with fun and interactive motions! Additionally, specific classes from PreK- Fifth grade sign up to lead our chapels. This is a wonderful time for students to share their faith, perform a song or skit, and teach us many lessons from the Bible! It's a wonderful time for students to come together and worship. Chapel meets three times a month on Thursdays at 8:30am. Once a month, all grades gather for Faith Families (one member of each grade) for a special service project.

Growing up in a musical family, Jennifer was destined for the arts. Performing on stage and using her gifts has always been her passion until she discovered that she loves to see her students shine on stage even more. Prior to teaching in 2006, she spent time touring and traveling with different performance companies such as Up with People, Missoula Children's Theatre, and the Palm Beach Princess cruise line. She has spent most of her career teaching music and drama in charter schools but is thrilled to be at Denver Christian School. Along with teaching full time, she also runs a private piano and voice studio and has directed and performed in shows all across the Denver Metro Area where she served as Vice President for Platte Valley Players in Brighton. She also has a passion for leadership and helping others and establishments become their very best. Her greatest prayer for students of any age is that they learn to believe in themselves and have the confidence to do anything God has put before their path!
