Faith Formation

For Children and Youth

“A Word to Grow On”

Our church school children (ages 4 – 8) begin with us in worship on Sunday mornings at 9:45 during the school year.  Before we begin the readings, the children and their teacher come to the front of the church for “A Word to Grow On” from the priest.  Then, they leave for their class, returning for communion with their families.

Youth Program

Each month, our boys and girls (ages 9 and above) meet separately from 11:15 – 12:00 noon.  Then, they all meet together one Friday evening each month, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. (dinner is included).  Please check the calendar on the last page of the newsletter for dates each month.

Our confirmation program is offered for students in 9th and 10th grades.  Participants explore the Bible, the history of the church, the role of worship and sacraments, and their own spirituality.

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School is offered each year in June.  More information will be available in May.

For Adults

Christ the King offers several different programs for adults.  Throughout the year, a variety of short courses are presented focusing on different topics including Bible studies, spiritual practices, personal growth, information for newcomers, and preparation for confirmation.

Two groups meet on a regular basis throughout the year; for additional information about meeting times, please check our events schedule.

Daughters of the King

The Esther-Macrina Chapter of the Daughters of the King (DOK) was formed in 2000. We meet monthly to study books and we provide various kinds of support to a variety of projects within and outside our church. Examples include financial support of a Haitian child through the Colorado Haiti Project, money for books at Peck Elementary located across the street from our building, and packing food for the Arvada Food Bank and our Annual Thanksgiving Turkey Shoot.

Men’s Breakfast and Bible Study

Our Men’s Breakfast and Bible Study began in 2013 and meets once a month.  Participants share the leadership of this group, which has been focusing on the Gospel of Luke this year.  for the next date.
