School has officially begun – under a very different set of circumstances this year. Special thanks for the “back to school prayer guide” that was in the bulletin last Sunday. Extras can be found on the kiosk.
Homeschool, Christian school, public school – three valid choices believers make in regard to education. All are represented here at HBC. All are respected. Every parent is making their choice with different contributing factors so each one will come up with a different decision. I am thankful school choice isn’t a test of one’s spirituality or lack thereof here at HBC. School choice is one of those Christian liberty issues where we honor and love each other. Each choice has its share of positives and negatives – so the bottom line, regardless of which one you prefer, we still must trust God.
We have a church of teachers too – again parents and grandparents who homeschool, teachers in both public and Christian schools. They need our prayers as well as the children. These are difficult days for teachers.
Pray for our school children: Dale, Madison, Landon, Baleigh, Josiah, Beric, Ariel, Kaylen, Isaac, Ava, Colten, Lucas, Jake, Illiana, Adaline, Zayden, Zander, Lakely, Keeley Ann, and Matthew. Pray for our teachers: Amanda, Cindy, Nic & Lois, Don, Susan, Amy, Charmayne, Charlie Ann and Amber. I am thankful that we can uphold each other in prayer.
