Once again, our WCS community came together, for 2 evenings last week, in our shared mission to nurture faith, engage learning, and grow in community … to the glory of God.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing. Parents and teachers share a commitment to nurturing the faith development of our students. Parent-teacher conferences are an opportunity for us to speak honestly about the progression of this development. The “Living in Community” section of the progress report offers a window for parents to understand how their child is responding to and contributing in Christian community.
Proverbs 4:13 Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life. Learning at WCS occurs through a biblical world-view that requires the learner to question, gather information, and reflect on God’s design of His world and all things contained in it. Progress reports give parents an understanding of how and what their child is learning through a biblical world-view. All subject areas can be considered ‘bible class’.
Matthew 18:20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them. The parents and teacher experience a close sense of community during a year of teaching a student. God is present in that close community. His presence during conferences allows parents and the teacher to develop a Godly vision of learning progress, goal setting, and support for the student.
Once again, God has demonstrated his love for and faithfulness to WCS. During a time of social distancing and uncertainty, God provided a way for our community to meet and discuss the training up of His children. God has blessed us with the technology, flexibility, and adaptability to fulfill the mission of WCS. Once again, God has demonstrated his love for and faithfulness to WCS!
Then you, being rooted and grounded in love, will have power, together with all the saints, to comprehend the length and width and height and depth of the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Eph 3:17-19
