Spiritual Life

City Christian Schools stresses a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, believing that each child should be “born again” according to John 3:3, 5. This has been at the core of our foundation purpose since beginning more than three decades ago.


Prayer before performing

At City Christian Schools, we are not only interested in educating the mind—we also want to build the spirit. This is done by daily interaction between students and teachers, along with weekly scheduled chapel times. Chapels are held once a week and begin with student led worship. Students are encouraged to memorize Bible verses each month and receive recognition for their efforts.

Students are encouraged to memorize eight to ten verses of the Bible each month and they receive rewards for their efforts. Each day classes open with devotions, prayer, and a short study on Bible truths.

In all grades we incorporate small group discussions focusing on personal and spiritual growth in the students’ lives. The elementary school has daily Bible class where students learn biblical truths and practical application in their personal lives. In high school we offer classes on Bible and Christian apologetics.

We strongly encourage student participation in the annual Generation Unleashed Conference held locally, one of the largest youth conferences held in the United States. Students are given the opportunity to perform in services and participate in outreaches to our city or other countries.
