"I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you." 

Psalm 119:11 (NIV)

WORD is a Bible passage that will change annually and serves as the focus of a given school year. School-wide memorization of this passage is encouraged, incentivized, and discussed in our various clubs, classes, and events. WORD memorization is completely optional, but we hope you will join us in making an effort to hide God’s word in our hearts!
The passage for the 2021-2022 school year is Ephesians 4:1-16. This may be recited in any version you choose. Once the passage has been memorized, it needs to be verified by anyone on the leadership team including class day leads, club directors and committee members, academy director, park day leads, office staff, or board members. Specially created WORD decals have been created and will be given out to all who complete the memory work. Collect a new WORD decal with each new school year. Group photos of WORD memory achievers will be included in the yearbook if passage is recited by February 28, 2022.
WORD is available for both students and parents to participate in. The deadline for verification is June 3, 2022.  Make this a family project! If you simply read the passage daily, you will be surprised how quickly you will be able to commit it to memory in the weeks and months ahead. 

Ephesians 4:1-16 (NIV)
Unity and Maturity in the Body of Christ

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. This is why it says:

“When he ascended on high,
    he took many captives
    and gave gifts to his people.”

(What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions[c]? 10 He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.) 11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
