Discipleship in Elementary School
Discipleship in the elementary school takes place in and out of the classroom, beginning with our faculty and staff, all of whom profess faith in Christ. At Heritage Christian, we believe academics and discipleship go hand-in-hand and that students can learn the Bible and biblical principles at a very young age. Because of this, the elementary school integrates the Bible into every facet of education, helping students grow physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually through the truths of the Bible.
In class, students learn Bible stories, biblical principles, and the truths of what it means to follow Christ. As part of the Bible curriculum, students learn how to memorize and recite Scripture every year.
Each year, elementary teachers make spiritual goals specific to their class. These goals are meant to help them mentor their students on a more personal level. Teachers do things such as pray with and for their students every day, share what it means to be a good friend, and teach the Gospel through discipline.
Our students are exposed to local as well as international opportunities to serve while in elementary school. Through care ministries, they support children around the globe through the shoe box ministry with Operation Christmas Child. As children progress from grade to grade, they are also given opportunities to contribute to local ministries by collecting items like shoes, canned goods, and books. Serving within the school is additionally emphasized through encouraging notes and random acts of kindness.
