“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
At WCS, we believe you have one opportunity to educate your child, and an education grounded in Jesus Christ affects your child the rest of their life.
Biblical training is extremely important in developing spiritual maturity. It begins when students develop an intimate relationship with God and begin to view life from God’s perspective. It continues when they realize that God has given them many gifts and abilities to use in the area in which God has called them to serve. These gifts are developed through Biblical training that takes place in each classroom. Daily Bible instruction in each grade level is appropriate to the student’s developmental level and needs. Spiritual training is enhanced by weekly chapel services, spiritual emphasis week, service projects/missions, spiritual retreat at the beginning of the year, prayer walk, and “See you at the Pole”.
Students are encouraged to take an active role in chapel through leading worship, playing in the worship band, and prayer. Pastors from local churches come and share what God has laid on their hearts. WCS represents approximately 20 churches in Bartlesville and surrounding communities.
Spiritual Emphasis Week provides an opportunity for students to hear from another spiritual leader outside their leadership at WCS. Students are encouraged to ask questions, to share experiences and have a deeper understanding of the Scriptures and how it applies to their lives. Every day throughout the week students gather for worship and instruction.
WCS, in combination with Partners in Christ, gives students an opportunity to serve on overseas mission trips. All secondary students will participate in local service projects like: Agape Mission, Salvation Army, Voice of the Martyrs, Mary Martha, Elisha House, SPCA, and the Lighthouse Mission.
The National Day of Prayer is observed at WCS including the Children’s Prayer Walk. It is a great opportunity to bring our community together and encourage our students to pray for community leaders and those who serve in our community.
The secondary students are excited that they can help raise money to assist the Salvation Army in helping low-income families who are struggling during the Christmas season.
Students showing exemplary Christian character are recognized throughout the course of the year, and these students are encouraged to continue to be spiritual leaders among their peers.
