And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. Mark 12:30
The fine arts program forms an integral part of Bethesda Christian School’s curriculum. The arts enable Christian schools to educate mind, body and spirit from a biblical world view. God has given each student specific abilities to utilize in fulfilling His purpose and as Christian educators we have the privilege of guiding our students in discovering and developing their unique talents.
The fine arts provide opportunities for self-expression, creativity, communication of ideas and beliefs, and worship. Skills developed in fine arts activities enhance a student’s ministry far beyond their academic career. Because the arts utilize all areas of the brain and accommodate a variety of learning styles, all students can build beneficial skills, including development of abstract thinking, diligence, cooperation, patience, discernment and social skills. Whether they participate in music, visual arts or theater, fine arts skills are lifetime skills. Finally, the fine arts open the imagination, speak to the soul, and encourage curiosity, wonderment and awe as students learn to reflect the image of their Creator and honor Him by developing gifts He has placed within them.
Honor the Lord for the glory of His name, Worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness. Psalms 29:2
