BIBLE   Grade 9   Christian Living
 Description:  Students explore the fundamentals of living the Christian life through “upward” and “outward” relationships. Beginning with the Gospel message of salvation, students learn how to develop their “upward” relationship with God through Bible study, prayer, faith, and obedience using daily Bible-study skills. They will also gain a greater understanding of God’s Word by learning the books and themes of the Bible. Finally, they will learn how a Christian world view will help them to respond as a Christian in their “outward” relationships with their family, friends, and others.

BIBLE     Grades 10 & 11    Genesis/Romans  (taught alternating years)
Description:  Students will work through two important books of the Bible that are foundational for their Christian faith – one from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament. The book of Genesis tells us about the beginnings of everything (except God): the beginning of the universe, man, sin, judgment and God’s special people, Israel. We will discuss the creation-evolution debate, and the world-wide Flood and its ramifications. Of special interest is the study of the four great men of Genesis – Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. They were ordinary human beings who had great successes and great failures – just like us. But God used each of them in a special way.
Paul’s letter to the Christians in Rome was his magnum opus (great work). He takes us from man’s total depravity to God’s great salvation and wants us to see the great scope of God’s plan. Romans helps us to understand how to make godly decisions and live a godly life in a tough world.
