Each school day begins with a short (15 minute) Bible class. The High School (9th – 12th Grade) and Middle School (6th – 8th Grade) meet together on the school’s back porch and read the Bible. Stephen Crowson explains the class routine, “Each morning we read 5 verses from Proverbs and then we read a chapter of another book of the Bible. So far, we have read the entire books of Daniel, Esther, and Joshua. Now we are in Judges and we hope to also read through the book of Ruth before the end of school.” After reading a section of verses, the students restate those verses in their own words, and apply the verses to their everyday lives.
“I’ve enjoyed reading Proverbs. The book emphasizes that a wise person accepts correction and discipline, and that a wise person always, always tells the truth,” said Aidan Miller. Asher Miller added, “I really liked the book of Joshua! It tells the story of the Israelites fighting and winning battles to conquer the Promised Land as the Lord had commanded. It’s a book about obedience and victory.”
