Welcome to Grade 6!

Rooted in Love!

Each week, students are expected to learn their Bible Memory verses and recite it to their parents and teacher. Students should also be familiar with the meaning of the passage and be able to explain it and how it applies to their lives. It’s so important for us to have scripture in our heart and mind, so this is a wonderful way for our children to talk about scripture and to hold it in their hearts.

At school, we will often recite the verses together and talk about it daily. We ask that you would talk with your child about our verses too.
Thank you for your support!

Week 1-3:

“Dear friends, let us continue to love one another,
for love comes from God.
Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God.
But, anyone who does not love does not know God,
for God is love.”

~ I John 4:7-8 NLT

Week 4&5:

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
it keeps so record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

~ I Corinthians 13:4-8

Week 6

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them.
Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. 
Love each other with genuine affection,

and take delight in honouring each other.”
~ Romans 12:9-10

Week 7&8: Due October 26th

“Lead a life worthy of your calling,
for you have been called by God.

because of your love.”

~ Ephesians 4:1-2

Week 9&10 - Due Friday, November 10th

“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power
through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts
through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,
may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long,
and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge
that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”

~ Ephesians 3:16-19
