At our end of year meeting in June, as staff, one of the items we work through is the school theme for the following year. Again this past June, staff presented and discussed various themes and chose FAITH IN ACTION; HEROES FOR GOD as our theme for the 2017-18 school year. Why a hero theme? Why a Faith in Action theme? Well…everybody loves a hero. And all of those amazing Bible stories about ordinary people being called to work out God’s plan….What a great way to engage students in the stories of faith, in examples of Godly character, in stories of living and acting out God’s story.

We seek to equip: to provide a safe place to practice and develop skills and convictions that students will need for life. We don’t just want to talk about learning, life, and faith as an abstract, we want to ACT, to learn, to be the hands and feet of Christ, and make a life of faith as real as possible for our students. We want our students to grow up well – to grow in understanding, in knowledge, in community, and in wisdom. We want them to know what it means to stand strong in their faith, to listen, to speak, to discern. We want our students to know that they are part of something bigger – the body of believers, that great cloud of witnesses who lived by faith. We want them to know that we are part of God’s timeline and His story.
