Our theme verse for the 2015-2016 school year!
great church
High school soccer evaluations/try outs start tonight and run through tomorrow. Both days will be from 5:00-6:300 pm at VCA. Anyone planning to participate in soccer this fall must be in attendance or have your absence pre-approved by Coach Krause. JV and varsity teams will be decided by these evaluations and they will mark the official start of practices.
Christian education is misunderstood by many and we want to try and address some of the questions we are frequently asked. Thanks to Danville Christian Academy for a well-written document from which these questions and answers are derived. What is meant by a philosophy of Christian school education? As those who shape the next generation, it is our responsibility to inspire children to know and love God. The purpose of a Christian education is to present students the truth about God’s relationship to them personally, to life, the world, and everything in it. Students are shown that the Word of God is the authoritative source upon which to build a life that has both purpose and meaning. The philosophy of Christian education calls for an educational process that puts the Bible at the center of all learning and asks the student and the teacher to evaluate all they see in the world – through the eyes of God. Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life” (John 14:6). In Christian education, students learn to use the Bible to evaluate all of life – including what they learn in the classroom.
Happy birthday Mrs. Crain...we hope you have a great day!
What are you thankful for today?
