Max Depree—accomplished author, devout Christian, and distinguished CEO of Hermann Miller—wrote in his tiny jewel of a book, Leadership is an Art, “We do not grow by knowing all of the answers, but rather by living with the questions.” Of the many questions our eighth graders contemplate, none is more important than “Who am I?”
In the first half of a trimester-long Bible class, your child will consider what it means to be made in the image of God and to be a follower of Christ. Then students turn their gaze to the future, to high school and beyond, and contemplate the spiritual takeaways they need to be ready for the journey. The intentional lessons of Bible class are supplemented by the rituals of faith that have been here since day one: daily prayer and devotionals, weekly Chapel and advisory lessons, and the nine “fruits of the Spirit” that undergird our character program. If you take a look around ROBS, we think you’ll see signs of God everywhere.
