Our Vision Statement: "GROWING UP THE FUTURE".

empowered7.gif

Our Purpose:

The training up of your child(ren) in the admonition and will of God, with careful attention toward biblical truth, following the example of Christ as recorded and established in God's Word, with regard to prove spiritual growth in their lives, as is necessary for the ultimate goal of your child(ren)'s spiritual maturity, effective ministry and an enduring Christian walk.

The following Scripture references are the foundation upon which we have built our vision. And what's even greater, these same scriptures can be utilized at home as they apply to biblically based parenting.

Proverbs 22:6---Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 29:18---Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepth the law, happy is he.

Remember, we are partners in "growing up" your child(ren) in Christ. Do not underestimate your role in your child(ren)'sspiritual education within our church..."godliness" and "right behavior" begin at home. As my parent partner you can be a great help by...

[1] doing your very best to see that your child(ren) arrive on time for class (and holding me accountable to be on time also)...

[2] showing an interest in what our lessons are about and what they've learned (and holding me accountable for teaching them)...

[3] speaking with me if you have comments or concerns...

[4] encouraging your child(ren) to meet all of the "Teacher Expectations" listed below.

(A) TEACHER EXPECTATIONS OF STUDENT:

[1] Student will respect church property.
[2] Student will respect the teacher or substitute.
[3] Student will respect other classes (teachers and students) by not distracting or disturbing them.
[4] Student will set an example for other students through appropriate behavior.
[5] Student will participate in prayer.
[6] Student will read Scripture text.
[7] Student will acknowledge and identify at least one biblical truth that was taught during our time together.
[8] Student will memorize required Scripture verses and recite these to teacher accordingly.

(B) REALIZING THE JUNIOR CLASS VISION:

[1] PRACTICE TALKING TO GOD
In the Junior class students (and myself) will work on developing the confidence to pray out loud and in front of others and to develop a desire to pray for others (intercede).

[2] KNOW GOD'S WORD
In the Junior class students (and myself) will work on developing a building knowledge of the Scriptures through repetition and memorization.

[3] USE BIBLICAL KNOWLEDGE TO HELP OTHERS
In the Junior class students (and myself) will work on developing a desire and confidence to do the work that God has set before us:

1st---to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ through our witness of him.
2nd---to seek and learn as much about the Holy Spirit as possible for our level of study.

How can the parent partner help? Encourage your child(ren) to realize the "Vision" through praying with them, reading scripture and working on memorization with them, and by sharing instances where you have witnessed Christ to others or lead someone in the sinners prayer. Talk with them about the Holy Spirit and how He is their help and guide. Share personal experiences with them. This is not only a great way to encourage spiritual growth, but it is also a great way to spend quality time with your child(ren). Let them know that they can be workers in the field even at their age. Encourage them to make a diffence and to be all they can be in Christ.

(C) WHAT SHOULD THIS VISION ACCOMPLISH:

The student should:

[1] become stronger and more confident in their prayer life...
[2] know some portion of God's Word and identify how scripture can be utilized to effect positive change in their lives and in the lives of others...
[3] know how to tell others about Jesus and what He has done for them, how to lead another in the sinners prayer, and direct then as to what they should do after having been saved...for instance, find a reputable Bible believing church, read the Bible daily, pray to God daily, and so on...
[4] have an effective knowledge of the Holy Spirit in that they...
a) understand that He is God,
b) understand His character [on level],
c) understand why He was sent by Jesus [His mission],
d) understand that He should not be feared; neither should the Baptism in the Holy Spirit [however, because He is God, He should be reverenced]
[5] have an effective knowledge of the baptism in the Holy Spirit in that they...
a) understand thatthe Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a gift and is something God wants them to have as their source of empowerment for service,
b) understand that there are spiritual gifts which come with the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and be able to identify as many of the nine as possible,
c) understand what the evidence of the baptism is, and,
d) each should desire to receive (be seeking) the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.
