In Proverbs 14:29 it says, Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly. I don’t know about you, but it can be pretty easy for me to exalt folly! What makes the subject of anger even harder is when we see our children struggling to handle their frustrations and the emotions that often accompany it.
On Valentine’s Day we take a moment and dote on our sweetheart and we might even say those special words, I love you. But honestly, I think love is one of those words we use too much and too easily. Wouldn’t you like your Valentine’s Day to be more meaningful this year?
On February 15, 2017 from 9:45 to 10:45 Stetson Baptist Christian School will present a special Love Chapel. When I first heard about it, I thought it was very strange for a school to host a wedding! But the more I’ve learned about this special event, the more I know that it will touch your heart and I’m convinced you don’t want to miss it.
Here are three very simple reasons why you need to mark your calendar today:
The service has been so special in the past, we’ve decided to open it up to the public! So, this year instead of “looking for love in all the wrong places,” invite a friend and take an hour to celebrate the joy of children and Jesus’ love.
Can you believe we are starting 2017? At the beginning of a new year it is normal to reflect… thinking about those personal or work goals we marked off the list or on those that remain unconquered. At Stetson Baptist Christian School, we want to encourage you to take a moment and reflect on your 2016 family life. How much time are you all spending together as a family? How much time are you spending together “unplugged” from TV and other electronic devices? Does your family spend time reading and/or studying God’s Word? Does your family attend church together?
One difference you will notice in the education at Stetson Baptist Christian School is our focus on the fine arts as part of our regular curriculum. Education in the fine arts is an integral part of the development of each human being. Those who have studied learning processes through the ages, beginning with Plato, have emphasized the importance of the arts in the education process.
Arts education refers to education in the disciplines of music, dance, theatre, and visual arts. Study in the arts is integral to our society. They are a part of the cultural heritage of every American. The arts are what make us most human, most complete as people. The arts cannot be learned through occasional or random exposure any more than math or science can.
Christian education is not for everyone. Finances. Location. Perceived academic deficiencies. These are just some of the reasons parents spurn Christian education in favor of its public school counterpart.
Considering a Christian education is not a decision to be made lightly. There are a lot of things that parents need to know in order to make an informed decision about their child's education. Parents need to consider all the facts and what they will be getting for their education dollars versus a public school education.
