Home and School
Home and School
the Old Testament instruction was given that followers of God were
to be taught in all significant areas of life; healthful living,
civic order, social justice, purposeful work, and the deeper meaning
divine character and law (Deuteronomy 6:1-25). This is the
continuing mission of the Seventh-day Adventist school system.
But teachers alone, even loving, Christian teachers, cannot do the
work of leading young people to salvation, knowledge, and maturity.
The most effective education will take place when teachers, parents,
and church members work together to provide an environment where
children can learn and grow. Paul compares the church to a body in
which all of the parts
have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part
suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with
it. Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of
(I Corinthians 12:25-27). When parents support the church school and
the teachers, everyone is honored and everyone rejoices.
It is the
mission of the Home and School department at Brooklyn church that
every child in our church has the opportunity of attending a
Seventh-day Adventist school. Please partner with us as we seek to
educate God’s children in a climate consistent with God’s will. If
we can be of any assistance to you, please let us know
