There is so much to be excited about in Faith Formation at CCS this year! Here are three highlights:
First, our theme verse is Ephesians 2:10: For we are God’s masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. The verse starts with our identity in Jesus and then encourages us to use our God-given gifts to serve Him and make this world a better place. Awesome!
Second, there are changes to the Bible program at CCS. In the Elementary, three teachers are piloting a new curriculum titled Telling God's Story. The idea here is that we start with Jesus and then move our studies to the rest of the Bible. We're anticipate great things for our school's youngest disciples. In the Secondary, I'm excited to join teachers of Bible 9 and High School Christian Ethics in the classroom.
Finally, we're updating chapel in the Secondary. There's a new name, Faith Formation Fridays with a new team of students and young adult volunteers planning our times together (a special CCS welcome to Bella Pacciono and Michael Prins). The first part of the year students will hear numerous teachers and students share testimonies of how their story connects to the Biblical story. Parents and Guardians, please join us whenever you can so watch the school calendar as much of this will take place in the High School Gym this year.
