The Gospel's Response to Final Exams

" I would teach my children that their performance on exams does not affect one iota God's perfect, unwavering love for them. I would tell them that their response to academic expectations is an opportunity to honor God. I heard Tim Keller say at a conference, "Do your work as unto the Lord." Preparing for adulthood is the "work" of childhood. We want our children to believe that taking exams is an opportunity to love and serve God."

"Fortunately our children's lives as Christ followers are not defined by their performances, and his perfect sacrifice on the cross is our final assessment. St. Paul writes, "Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him." May we govern and teach our children that in Christ we live confidently the life that has been authored by Him and assigned to each of us."

What do our students say about RYM Colorado?

"The RYM trip in Colorado two years ago was one of the greatest trips that I have been on with the church. Throughout the hiking, Spikeball and volleyball tournaments (which we won!), jumping into a frozen lake, and our daily lessons on the different topics of your journey with the Lord, we got to experience all of this in God's beautiful creation of the Rocky Mountains! It was honestly one of the greatest weeks of my life and I would definitely encourage anyone and everyone to go!!" - Callie Maffett

"RYM Colorado is the best RYM there is! Hiking every day, getting to stay in the Rocky Mountains--it's great!" - Barrett Irmscher

"Good memories: The hikes, worship, Jacqueline falling out of the Gaga ball pit, Callie and I jumping into the freezing lake, the classes we took and the devotions were absolutely amazing. "PARKOUR""- Rosalee Kelley

"It was so much fun! Getting to visit Colorado and study God's Word with friends, made it the best trip ever! Also, the bus ride there and back was a memorable experience; I love long trips!"- Matt Sartorato

"RYM Colorado was my first Senior High summer trip and it was probably one of my favorites. The teachers in the classes that we signed up for were amazing, and I really loved the opportunities to hike and compete in different sports like volleyball and ultimate frisbee. I really enjoyed the impactful teachings by the conference leaders and our FPC small group leaders." - Pierce Monroe
