Christian education

Being a Christian school, our children are taught that Jesus loves them. We do this by modeling God's love in attitude and approach daily through Bible stories, singing songs of praise and saying grace before snack and lunch.


Each new student receives a children's Bible at the beginning of the school year.  A different Bible story is introduced each week in chapel and also discussed in the classroom. We encourage parents to read to their child the corresponding story in their children's Bible.



"We're so thankful for everyone at BELC -- thankful for our partnership in prayer as God

works through BELC to train up the children to bring heaven on earth." Christine L.
