LA News -- April 8th

Founder's Note

Ephesians 6:4 tells us to bring our children up in the nurture, admonition, discipline, and training of the Lord. When we think about it, truly there is nothing more important in our jobs as parents than to raise our children in a way that pleases God and creates the context and opportunity for them to come to know God through repentance, true conversion, and a life that is fully submitted to Christ. Nurturing our children in the ways of the Lord is our greatest task as parents. We do this through safeguarding them from unhealthy influences in culture, teaching them the importance of infallible truth in God's word, raising them amongst a community of believers in a church family that helps build our faith, modeling a devoted Christian life for them, and so much more. It's important! As a school, it is our joy to partner with parents and to support your efforts in raising godly children. There is NOTHING more important for your children than parents who are devoted to following Christ and raising them in a godly home. For each of you who is prioritizing this is a culture that has gone mad, don't grow weary, don't be discouraged, don't give up. You will see the fruit!
