The spiritual theme for 2022-2023 is “Promise Keeper: Faithful to All His Promises” based on Psalm 145:13b: “The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does.”
As the team considered the focus for the year, we wanted to remind ourselves and our students of God’s faithfulness to his people through his promises to us. We are grateful that, “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ. And so through him the ‘Amen’ is spoken by us to the glory of God.” (2 Corinthians 1:20)
To select the theme, the team invited staff to submit ideas, and we received many great verses and themes. A multi-campus group, consisting of Bible teachers, chapel coordinators and administrators, then met to discuss the selection of the spiritual theme for the coming year. We were looking for a key biblical concept that would have substantial breadth and depth for a year-long focus. We tried to identify something that is as meaningful to a three-year-old as to an eighty-three-year-old. We always try to build on spiritual themes from previous years to provide continuity and to ensure that we are covering a variety of themes.
There are several reasons that we believe it is important to focus on a spiritual theme. It provides the school community the opportunity to learn and investigate God’s word together. We are able to spend a year focused on a key concept in scripture that we can explore in music, visual art and words. It allows us to meditate on multi-faceted biblical gems. We’ve often marveled at how the Holy Spirit has used the theme to prepare us for events that we could never have anticipated.
We can’t wait to explore this theme together as a school community! Please continue to be in prayer for our school community as we embark on this important theme work this school year.
