Welcome to Covenant 2018. This could be the best year your student has had. I am not talking about reading, writing, and arithmetic, I am talking about spending time in the Word of God. I have always believed it was better to build boys than to mend men. If your student has a desire to learn more of God’s Word, this is definitely the place. Choose any of the following links and see what is being made available to the secondary students in Bible classes this year.
Secondary Theology Classes Exploring the Word of GodAugust 21, 2018
Certainly, this is an exciting time as the secondary students begin another year with the Word of God. The 7th grade is taking a class in New Testament Survey. They are responsible for learning the books of the New Testament and placing them in their proper category. During this school year, as the New Testament is taught, the students will identify the author of each book, the time and place of its writing, where the author was at the time of writing, the people, places, and culture being written about.
The 8th grade has embarked on a Journey with God as they are studying the Old Testament. They will be learning which books of the Old Testament are classified into which category. Studying the Old Testament also has many personal benefits. It introduces the students to people they can identify with–ordinary, imperfect people who trusted God and lived for Him in the nitty-gritty of everyday life. That same God, who never changes (Malachi 3:6), is worth trusting today.
In the Hermeneutics class, the 10th and 11th grades are being challenged to commit to a daily “Quiet Time,” as they begin studying the Word of God as part of their daily routine. Not only will they learn how to have a personal time with God, they will begin making notes in a daily journal, keeping track of what they have read and how it can be applied to everyday life.
In addition to their daily “Quiet Time,” this class will also be challenged with learning to study the Word of God. If our students are to develop into mature disciples of Jesus Christ, they need to know how to correctly handle the written Word of God (2 Timothy 3:15). They need to learn, by instruction and practice, how to read the Bible knowledgeably, interpret it accurately, and apply it appropriately.
I would ask you to pray for each of these students as they study His Word. Pray that the Word of God will become important to each of them.
