I am currently working on a book entitled The War on Children. Most adults can remember the halcyon days when society sought to protect children from harm. Not anymore. Popular culture has turned on the young with an unimaginable barrage of destructive assaults. Forces in government, education, entertainment, media, and even the family are waging an aggressive campaign to brainwash children through the spread of lies regarding virtue, gender, and basic human decency. This deception is aimed at shamelessly obliterating biblical spirituality and morality by systematically dismantling the foundations of society with unconscionable malice.
Our children belong to God. They are not the property of the government, the community, the department of education, or some elite class of “experts.” Every child is a unique treasure created by God for His own sovereign purpose. He graciously places children in their parents’ care and custody, and they are uniquely accountable to God as stewards and caretakers of the children He has given them.
Raising fallen children in a fallen world is hard, especially in a society dominated by forces that openly oppose the truth and moral precepts God has revealed in His Word. But the importance of that duty cannot be overstated, a fact underscored by the way this charge to parents is repeated over and over in Scripture. Never has there been a more urgent need for believing parents to realize that there is an all-out war, and children who cannot fight back are the target.
Our church remains committed to being a storehouse of truth for the family. In this regard, we have been privileged to see the Lord immensely expand the educational options for our children in the last year. The existing homeschooling groups that meet on our campus, the inauguration of Grace Academy, and Legacy Christian Academy coming under the leadership of Grace Church have all strengthened the fight for teaching our children the truth. Our summer offering will be dedicated to Christian education. Please prayerfully consider making a donation to support the growth of these institutions and ministry partners. Below you will find a brief description of these avenues of Christian education available to families:
Classical Conversations (meets at Grace Community Church on Mondays) is a widely known educational model that offers a Christ-centered homeschool curriculum. This parent-run, community-based classical education program has been helping families for over 25 years to instill a love for learning about the Creator and His creation, especially emphasizing grammar, dialectic, and rhetoric. For more information, visit classicalconversations.com, or email Gabriela Gierke at email@example.com.
Faith PSP (meets at Grace Community Church on Fridays) serves and supports homeschooling families with kindergarten through twelfth-grade students. With a special emphasis on academic excellence and a biblical foundation, this program walks with parents through the homeschool process, supporting them as they teach their children. Faith PSP students enjoy an interactive school day each Friday, including chapel time and classes together on the Grace Church campus. High school students in Faith PSP also benefit from a TMU Dual Enrollment Partnership. For more information, visit faithpsp.org, call 424-307-5040, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Grace Academy (meets Monday, Wednesday, Friday in SCV; Tuesday, Thursday, Friday at Grace Community Church) is a unique, hybrid on-site and at-home learning experience for kindergarten through eighth grade students. In the fall of 2022, Grace Church launched this innovative schooling model, which merges the essential elements of private Christian education and homeschooling for an excellent, accessible, and biblical education. Grace Academy has campuses at Grace Church and near The Master’s University in Santa Clarita. It is designed to serve as an equipping educational partner with Christian families, proclaiming Christ and His Word to support students in their intellectual growth and character formation. For more information, visit graceacademy.org, call 818-909-5723, or email email@example.com.
Legacy Christian Academy (a full-time private school in Valencia) has offered a premier, in-person educational experience in the Santa Clarita Valley for over 20 years. It is a WASC-accredited institution designed for students in kindergarten through high school. The faculty of Legacy Christian Academy (many of whom have graduated from The Master’s University and attend Grace Church) is committed to offering an academically rigorous and distinctly Christian culture where Jesus Christ is exalted, the Bible is viewed as truth, and biblical instruction encourages students to develop and live out their personal relationship with Jesus Christ. For more information, visit legacy-christian.com or call 661-257-7377.
God has providentially positioned Grace Church as a beacon of Christian education in a season when the needs couldn’t be more significant. Our elders are committed to offering these educational choices to our church’s families, which accommodate each family’s schedules and financial obligations. If you’re looking for a school for your student, consider enrolling in one of these schools.
We ask for your partnership in fortifying our efforts against the war on our children. We are excited to see what the Lord will do through your prayers and support!
Yours for the Master,
John and Patricia
