In John 15 Christ is speaking to His disciples about His role as the vine and their role as the branch. The goal of the branch is to bear fruit. As children of the Lord, it is our responsibility to bear fruit for the Lord. This cannot be done apart from Christ.
We have selected John 15:4a as our theme for the year to remind us to Abide in Christ in order to bear fruit in the students that we teach. As we begin this new year, our prayer is that Christ is seen in the lives of our staff and students.
