Your child will learn about God and Jesus in Bible class and weekly Chapel. He will study the major people, places, and events in the Old and New Testaments. She will gain a perspective on how God wants us to live by listening to daily devotionals based on scripture. He will say prayers of thanksgiving for our blessings and prayers for help when people around us are hurting.
Every teacher at ROBS has professed Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. But that doesn’t mean our faculty hold exactly the same beliefs or opinions. Our religious views are as varied as the churches we belong to, including Chapelwood Methodist, Christ the King Presbyterian, Faith Lutheran, First Presbyterian, River Oaks Baptist, St. Luke’s Methodist, St. Martin’s Episcopal, St. Vincent’s Catholic, and Second Baptist, to name a few. Because teachers and students openly discuss spiritual matters at school, your child may come home talking about what she heard in Chapel or Bible class. We hope you will use these moments as openings to talk about your personal religious views.
We believe it is vital to attend to children’s spiritual lives. A foundation in faith offers kids a framework for making good decisions, and it gives them optimism and resilience when the going gets tough. At ROBS, faith in Jesus Christ and Christian principles is our way forward.
