5 Ways Your Kids Can Express Their Faith at School

5 Ways Your Kids Can Express Their Faith at School

Whether your children are preschool or college-aged, it's important that they know how to express their faith in a school environment. Although we hear a lot about Bibles being banned from public schools or Christian prayer or after-school groups being targeted, it is important for Christian students to know that America is still a country with laws protecting religious freedom rights. We are blessed as Christians to be granted these freedoms, and we can encourage our children to use them while at school. Here are five ways students can express their faith during the school year.

Keep the Church in School

Keep the Church in School

Many American schools aren’t succeeding in the basics. In 2015, the U.S. Department of Education found that almost 20% of American high school graduates could not read. In many communities, that number is far higher. This is a moment for Christians to love our neighbors through education, like our forebears did. We should also advocate for new school choice policies, like the one just implemented in Arizona, which allows parents to use their own tax money for the schooling that’s best for their kids. There’s a lot that we can do, and when we do it, we give good gifts to the world. While grown-ups stalk picket lines, there are real kids who need a real education right now. The Church has always been more than up to the task.
