RISE: 2018-19 School Theme

“Our theme for the 2018-2019 school year comes from Colossians 3:1-2, “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”

We are summarizing the theme in the word “Rise”. As Paul writes, since we have been raised, rise. Notice that we are not the first actors in the movement. First we were raised in Christ, now we get to rise.Enabled by the Spirit of God we rise to set our hearts and minds on things above. The movement begins with the Lord. It seeks a determined response, that we might resolutely set our hearts and minds on His things.

The school’s focus then is really an offer to be joined.

“Rise. A Tree of Life community invitation to Spirit led real life in Christ”

Would you walk with us in this pursuit? We asking the Lord to engage each student in a deeper connection with Jesus this year. That, as we kneel before Him on their behalf, He might rise within them. Lord God, let it be so.”
