What started out as a regular day in Mrs. Boucher’s Transitional Kindergarten class quickly turned out to be an extraordinary one. The morning began as all mornings do in TK — opening with prayer, saying the Pledge of Allegiance, and doing morning warm-ups like updating the calendar. Like every other day, the first subject was Bible. And while God does something beautiful during each day’s Bible lesson, He did something particularly magnificent on this day.
Mrs. Boucher’s class was gathered in a circle as she read Scripture and discussed it with her students. As always, the TKindergarteners had lots of questions. And, as always, Mrs. Boucher followed the leading of the Holy Spirit as she answered. Before she knew it, the subject of heaven came up, and she took the opportunity to share God’s plan for salvation with her class.
That morning, a handful of children responded to the Good News by praying and asking Jesus to come into their lives.
Romans 10:9 says, “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and you believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” The Bible lays out no conditions regarding age, doctrinal stance or levels of theological understanding. All who believe and confess will be saved.
What happened that beautiful morning in Mrs. Boucher’s class embodies why SVC exists. Yes … our students thrive academically. Yes … they grow socially. Yes … they flourish by engaging in a wide variety of activities and interests. But what makes SVC so special, and what differentiates the school from so many others, is the faculty and staff who are committed to the spiritual formation of today’s youth and tomorrow’s leaders. This is the DNA of Saddleback Valley Christian School!
