“I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun has risen. Not because I see it, but because I see everything by it.” —C.S. Lewis
School is not just a place where one learns about math, science, history, or languages; school is a place where children begin to develop as people. They learn life lessons and begin to develop their own opinions and morals. At Rhema, children learn friendship, trust, perseverance, and hope. They learn that God can be found not only in the Bible and during prayer, but also between the lines of an old poem, in a math equation, or through an art project.
Rhema is a place where God’s creation and His love are explored daily, and in everything that is learned. For years education has been an important part of society; the environment in which one learns is as important as what one is learning.
Students aren’t the only ones who benefit from attending Rhema. There are plenty of opportunities for parents to get involved as well. Moms and dads are encouraged to help out in the classroom and on school trips. Parents can get involved in fundraisers and attend numerous school events designed to keep them active in their children’s education.
Rhema also gives parents and students alike the opportunity to get involved in the community. Whether it’s serving at a seniors’ dinner or singing at a Remembrance Day service, Rhema provides many opportunities to give back to the community. Matthew 18:20 says, “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” Rhema is more than just a school, it is a community, a place of worship, a refuge. It is a place where God’s spirit dwells.
