Our 3rd graders had so much fun in their 100 Dresses competition! 
Congratulations to our winners!


This Week in History – The 3rd graders will be learning about Homer’s writings and the Greek gods.  They will learn that while the stories of Greek mythology are quite entertaining, they were more than just bedtime stories. The gods were actually worshipped, trusted, and feared by the people of the ancient world. They will have fun comparing the Greek gods to the God of the Bible. Who do you think will win in our epic battle?

8th Grade Literature – Why read The Pilgrim’s Progress? – First published in 1678, The Pilgrim’s Progress is the most famous work of the English Puritan John Bunyan (1628-1688). It has been in print continuously since its first publication, has been translated into over 200 languages, and is widely regarded as second only to the Bible in its influence on the Western world. Generations learned to read through reading Bunyan’s allegory, and it was an influential book in colonial America. It gives us a unique insight not only into English Puritan culture of the 17th Century, but a timeless adventure that will captivate the heart of every Christian. This is no ordinary book. In his introductory Apology, Bunyan challenges us as the reader:

Would’st read thyself, and read thou know’st not what,

And yet know whether thou art blest or not,

By reading the same lines? O then come hither,

And lay my book, thy head, and heart together.

Bunyan is calling us to read The Pilgrim’s Progress with our “head and heart together.” What does this mean? It means that if approached simply with an open mind, the book will be a blessing. However, if the text is approached with both an open mind and an open heart, then by the power of the Holy Spirit, it can change your life. Millions of people have had their lives profoundly shaped by this book. I invite your child into that adventure too.




9th Job and Ecclesiastes

    • How can we have faith that God is good when we can’t completely understand him?
    • Do the events of our lives matter?

10th Augustine Confessions

    • Why do we try to satisfy our hunger for God with everything else possible, even when his offer of satisfaction is right in front of us? 
    • What things can hinder the life of faith even when a person intellectually assents to the truth of the gospel? What does it take to overcome those hinderances? 

11th Blaise Pascal Pensees

    • What is the human predicament?
    • What is the solution to the human predicament?

12th Plato Republic

    • How can the state be an instrument of justice, liberty, and equality?
    • What is Justice?
    • Does might make right?
