For God gave us spirit not of fear but of love and power and self-control .
–2 Timothy 1:7 ESV
God made us Fearless!
This year we are focusing on eliminating fear and praying big, living big, and serving big for God! God created us in His image without fear, but with His love and power. The Bible is filled with examples of regular people doing fearless, courageous (sometimes crazy!) things for God. Think of David and Goliath, Daniel in the Lion’s den, Caleb and Joshua, Noah, Moses, the list can go on and on. These were regular people who cast fear (and judgment) aside and lived BIG for God.
As we continue this year’s journey, we encourage students and staff to practice and remember the lasting impact of casting fear aside can have on each of us – in the classroom, on the playground, in meetings, on the bus, and at home.

Importance of the annual Theme Verse at BCS
BCS’s annual Theme Verse is woven into to all aspects of education, play, and discipline. This bible verse serves as a touchstone for our students, teachers, and staff as we share the school year’s journey.
Through daily remembrance and practice of the Theme Verse, we grow in our personal relationships and our relationship with God. The Theme Verse helps instill the Christlike values that will guide our students into maturity.
