Purity Ceremony


The Eighth Grade completed their Purity Class this spring, learning about God’s perfect plan and why purity is important to Him.  Finishing with the ring ceremony in May, parents and students pledge:      

I pledge to live out purity in my home in all the stages of my son’s/daughter's life —   teaching and modeling a life dedicated to God’s ways by:

·        Reminding my son/daughter of their identity in Christ—instilling an appreciation of how wonderfully they are made by God.
·        Teaching him/her to seek and cherish company that encourages right behavior
·        Praying daily for them to grow in purity and wisdom.


I believe that God has a perfect plan for me and that my purity is important to Him. Today I make a pledge to God, myself, and my future spouse that I will save myself for marriage. I will be pure in heart and body because I know that is what God wants for me. I will trust in His timing.

                                     

                                         

28th Annual Bible Reading Marathon


Building #3 went to our nation’s capital in early May for their field trip.  The 5th Graders complemented their studies with a trip to the American Indian Museum.  The other students were in groups that visited the national monuments, Holocaust Museum, Natural History Museum and the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.  The highlight of the trip was joining hundreds of other believers in the 90 hour 28th Annual U.S. Capitol Bible Reading Marathon. Diverse cultures, denominations, ages, races, languages, and political parties were represented, setting aside differences to read, pray, and listen.  LCS is proud to honor the Bible as God’s Holy Word and proclaim its importance to our nation’s past, present, and future.  More information about this event can be found by contacting The Bible Foundation directors Michael & Terry Shaffer Hall.  dcbiblemarathon@gmail.com
