This month, we learned about Amaziah king of Judah, the son of King Joash. In 2 Kings 14 it is recorded that “he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD.” However, it continues in 2 Kings 14:4 to say, “Howbeit the high places were not taken away: as yet the people did sacrifice and burnt incense on the high places.” Even though he did right in the sight of God he had failed to completely rid the land of the idols that so easily made Israel to sin. He also didn’t do the right with a “perfect heart.”(2 Chron 25:2) Idols weren’t just a problem for the people living in the time of the Bible, but they are still a very real problem for us today! Anything that takes our time and energy away from studying God’s word and applying it in our lives, is an idol. We are given the pattern of an idol in Lev. 26:1 which reads, “ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither shall ye stand up any stone in your land, to bow down unto it.” Here we have an idol which signifies something that is worthless. Next, we have a graven image which is formed when the worthlessness starts to take a shape. Then, we have a standing image which is when the graven image is erected in a prominent place. This process of idolatry can take place in our minds. We can have a worthless thought that when dwelt upon will start to take shape in our mind. When we continue to think on it further it becomes prominent and is elevated in our thoughts and becomes an idol in our lives. If we keep this in mind and rid our hearts from idols, then we will truly be able to serve God with all of our heart and mind.

On Thursday March 26th we will celebrate the 100th day of school. Each student is asked to bring 100 of the same thing to share with students. Be creative! Items that have been brought in the past include: cookies, stickers, jelly beans etc. It will be a Gym uniform day (no costumes & no fun lunch that day). Please do not send the students with anything sharp (i.e., tacks, staples) as everything will be going into the same bag. It isn’t good to mix staples with jelly beans.
We welcome you and friends and family to the Presentations Night on April 2nd. You will be able to enjoy an evening of presentations, choir, and refreshments. The classrooms will also be set up prior to the presentations and you may come early and have a walk through the school to see the students’ work.
CHC will be celebrating the feast of Purim on March 12th. Prior to this day in Bible study, the students will learn the story of God working through Esther to deliver his people. All of this will come to a culmination on the 12th where art, skills, music, drama, & food will be incorporated into the learning to give the students a look into history close to 3500 years after creation.
