“From him (Christ) the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows, and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.” Ephesians 4:16

This week we are once again filled with joy that we could start in-person learning after a brief time spent online.  The headline in the above picture captures why we are joyful.  Learning in community is the best way to learn.

One of the values of Community Christian School is that we live in a community of belonging.  A community of belonging recognizes that each member is an image-bearer of God.  This gives us infinite worth.  The Bible also teaches that each image-bearer is uniquely gifted.  We were not created to be alone, but we were created to live in community.  We are to use our gifts to serve for the benefit or common good of the whole community and beyond.  Learning together means I share my gifts and I receive the gifts of others.  This giving and receiving makes the whole body stronger.  The interactions and conversations that are taking place in the picture above are an example of students working together, sharing, and receiving.  They are taking an active role in each others’ education and growth.
