Success Stories

My son has asked twice about summer school. He wants to make sure he is keeping up, so he can finish on time. Not sure where this kid came from, but I like it. Less than two years ago I had to drag him to school. Now he gets mad if he misses.

Lance Neidigk – Elim Parent

One reason Elim is recommended … is that the teachers are very helpful. If you are stuck on a problem in math, or you have trouble pronouncing a word in language arts, the teachers can help you out some. As you progress further and further, they’ll still help you out, just not as much.

Elim Student

The school feels more like a family with dedicated, skilled and caring teachers accepting, guiding and pushing students to grow spiritually, academically, and socially.

Lisa Boedecker – Elim Parent

I’ve learned so much at Elim about loving others, loving God’s creation, loving myself and loving my neighbor. I’m grateful that my last two years of high school have been at Elim Christian School.

Elim Student

Elim has been a wonderful place for our son to not only learn but to feel loved, encouraged and inspired by his compassionate teachers. You feel God’s touch on everything they do here.

Angelique Brinkman – Elim Parent

This morning at Elim Christian School we continued our look at the Heroes of the Faith in Hebrews 11 with another look at Abraham. We concentrated on verses 17-19, which coincide with the events of Genesis 22, Abraham sacrificing Isaac. What a difficult thing to ask. Abraham believed God and obeyed, all the while knowing God would provide.

The students immediately saw the parallels between this event and the life of Christ. Abraham was asked to sacrifice his one and only son and we learn later that God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only son. Isaac asked, “where is the lamb?” and later John the Baptist announces Jesus as the lamb who takes away the sins of the world. Isaac was resurrected figuratively, and Jesus in reality.

The location of this event is significant. Most scholars believe that Mt. Moriah, is the exact location where the Temple once stood, currently occupied by the Dome of the Rock. Yes, the rock under that golden dome you see in the picture, was where Abraham obeyed God, and God provided a suitable sacrifice. 1,000 years later, Solomon built a temple on that location, and that rock under the dome, is believed to be the location of the Holy of Holies, where the ark of the covenant was kept.

Formative Assessment.

According to Carnegie Mellon University (2021), “The goal of formative assessment is to monitor student learning to provide ongoing feedback that can be used by instructors to improve their teaching and by students to improve their learning.”

Ms. Shea is seen here in action with her class reviewing a lesson about the Solar System. How do you know that the students are learning what is being taught? How can a teacher move on to the next step if the previous step has not been grasped? This is likely the toughest challenge teachers face, knowing what the students know. There are multiple strategies that can be employed that range from boring to exciting. Ms. Shea chose the latter!

Ms. Shea is demonstrating one method of formative assessment that allows teachers to discover what the students know through a game-based learning platform, Kahoot!. This (free) platform allows teachers to create quizzes and games online where the students can interact with the curricular content using their devices while receiving immediate feedback. At Elim Christian School, every student is provided a Google Chromebook for their learning experience, so participation includes all who are involved in the lesson.

This formative assessment is, as most should be, low stake, worth a few or no points, which takes the pressure off the student allowing for a stress free experience while demonstrating what has been learned. The good news? If the students can demonstrate that they have mastered the material, everyone can move forward!

Today we studied Hero of the Faith #5, Sarah.

Hebrews 11:11 tells us, “By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered him faithful who had promised.” Sarah was the first of many prominent women in the Bible who would receive a sign from God, a miraculous birth, allowing them to look forward to a greater promise. Let’s take a look at the textual evidence, the miraculous births in scripture that point to Christ Jesus.

Isaac (Sarah gave birth at 90 years old even though she had always been barren)
Jacob & Esau (Rebecca was barren until Isaac prayed for her)
Joseph (Rachel was barren but God answered her prayer)
Samson (Mom was barren but an angel, God, appeared to her and told her to raise him as a Nazarite)
Samuel (Hannah was barren until she vowed to raise him as a Nazarite)
John the Baptist (Elizabeth was too old to have children)
Jesus (Teenage mother, Mary, was a virgin)

These hints, or shadows, were given to the people as far back as 2,000 B.C. allowing them to have a glimpse of the future when God would become flesh and dwell among us (John 1:14). They believed God and were considered righteous.

Interdependent: two or more people or things dependent on each other.

The group matters, we are a church, adopted as children of God, we are family. Mrs. Gibbs’ first period Bible class learned this valuable lesson today. By ourselves we are limited, but as a group working toward the same goal, we can accomplish much. Scripture is clear that we are meant to work together as a team and this is expressed many times, and today these two verses were highlighted.

“Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another” (Proverbs 17:7).
“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil” (Ecclesiastes 4:9).

After a review of the definition of Interdependent, Mrs. Gibbs took the class to the playground (pictured) to demonstrate this spiritual truth. The task was to bounce a ball on the parachute, which was impossible with one, two, even three people. This task was only accomplished when everyone worked together. Once returning to the classroom the students reflected on why it was difficult to bounce the ball and when it became easy.

This week at Elim we had an unexpected day off believing a Hurricane would wreak a little havoc, but we are back today safe and sound.

This week’s Hero of the Faith is Abraham. In Romans 4:3, Paul states, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness.” The first time we see an interaction between God and Abraham is in Genesis 12:1-3. Abraham was living in Ur, which is in modern day Kuwait, when God spoke to him telling to him go… and he went even though he did not know where he would end up (Hebrews 11:8). He traveled north through Mesopotamia to Haran, then turned to the southwest and ended up in what is today, Israel, between Bethel and Ai.

Abraham believed God, something all of our Heroes have in common, and they demonstrated their belief by what they did. God said to go, then made Abraham seven promises (please read Genesis 12:1-3), Abraham believed God, and did what he was told. It’s really simple. In Genesis 12:3 we see God promising Jesus: “...in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” The promises to Abraham, all of it, every promise, ultimately points to Jesus. God’s promises to Israel, also includes the church (Romans 9-11). Our blessing is our eternal life with Jesus and if you join the church through faith in Christ you are blessed, if you reject Jesus and reject the truth of His Word you are cursed, and finally if you share the gospel of Jesus you bless others. It’s all about Jesus!
