The Foundations classes offers a clear overview of the beliefs, theology, culture, expectations, and church vision of The Potter’s House of Denver. This class serves as a prerequisite and introduction to membership and volunteer involvement at The Potter’s House of Denver.



The Foundations 101 class is intended for those who seek membership or to become more involved in ministry at The Potter’s House of Denver in any capacity.

The class is offered within the same eight-week rotation as The Potter’s Wheel Mentoring Groups.

Upon completion of this eight-week course, class members will be classified as “members”, and able to volunteer in various areas of opportunity within The Potter’s House of Denver.

At the final class meeting, class participants will be presented with areas that are open for volunteer participation. This will be the first opportunity for class graduates to get connected in ministry.

Class participants that successfully complete this course will be presented before the congregation for Foundations Graduation (per schedule availability) and receive a certificate of completion. After successfully completing Foundations 101, the next best step to consider is Foundations 202.


This Summer we are offering two options for Foundations 101, register below for the class that best suits you!
