As recorded in Matthew 28:19, Jesus told His disciples to go and make disciples. He invested into His followers and then told them to go and do the same. At Mount Paran Christian School, we are committed and honored to be a part of this great commission. We strive to invest in our students, teach them the truths of God's Word, and equip them to invest in and teach others.

Each Friday the school-wide morning devotion is presented by an MPCS students. Check back each week as we share those devotions with you.

Spiritual Emphasis Days

At Mount Paran Christian School we set aside time throughout the year for our students to focus on God and their relationship with him. In middle school each grade has a spiritual emphasis day that is part of this God focused time. Each grade does something a little different but it is all focused on helping our student know God. In high school they have a spiritual emphasis week each spring that helps to remind all of us that God is the priority.

  • Sixth Grade

    We plan a spiritual emphasis day each fall with our sixth graders, which coordinates with our Bible field trip. While the girls travel to LaGrange to the Exploration of Antiquities Center, the boys remain on campus for a "male bonding" spiritual emphasis day. The boys usually cover a topic significant for young men and the development of their faith as they learn to be spiritual leaders among their peers. The next day, the boys will go to LaGrange, and the girls will have their spiritual emphasis day. The girls discuss being Godly young women, learning to ovey God, and how to live pure and modest lives. For both the boys and girls spiritual emphasis days, we have guest speakers, games, special food, crafts, snacks, and FUN!
  • Seventh Grade

    Developmentally, children experience a great deal of change during their seventh grade year in school. Academic, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual changes commonly occur simultaneously in the lives of most twelve and thirteen-year-olds. That's why Spiritual Emphasis Day in seventh grade is solely devoted to learning about who we are based on who Jesus says we are During this memorable day each Spring, students spend the first portion of the morning in praise and worship, followed by a meaningful message shared by a guest speaker. After a special lunch and time of fellowship, students are divided into small groups of boys and girls as they learn more about their identity in Christ. Spiritual Emphasis Day is an opportunity for students to release the distractions of daily life and focus on the One who gives us our identity - Jesus.
  • Eighth Grade

    In 8th grade our Spiritual Emphasis Day is always the Friday before we leave for Washington DC on our class trip. This is a great time of year to commit a full day to the spiritual growth of our students for many reasons. First, by the end of April we have spent almost a whole school year getting to know our students deeply and walking through scripture, life lessons and praying with them as they grow in their own personal walk with the Lord. This gives us insight so that we can tailor make 8th grade Spiritual Emphasis Day to fit the body of student believers we serve each year. Secondly, doing SE day right before we leave as a grade for Washington DC give the class and teachers a refreshed and hopefully deepened awareness of their unity in Christ and this day sets a tone over the whole trip and the remainder of 8thgrade. Lastly, with high school in the very near future at this time of year for 8th grade students we are able to address some of the highs and lows that students will face in high school.
    8th Grade Spiritual Emphasis day is designed each year with the personalities and spiritual development unique to that group so the speakers and format will very but a few favorites are always included. Every year we select a panel of outstanding MPC 11th and 12th graders to answer specific questions and give advice along the lines of what they wish they were told before entering high school. 8th grade Spiritual Emphasis day is always brought to a close with a time of prayer and reflection where students and teachers are found huddled together in small groups pouring their hearts out to God and each other. What an incredible blessing this day has always been to the students, teachers, and the parent volunteers involved!
  • High School

    The high school takes time twice a year to go off campus and spend some time focusing on what is most important, our relationship with God. In the fall the high school staff and students go to Sharptop Cove, a young life retreat facility in the North Georgia Mountains. During this three-day retreat students strengthen their relationships with each other and have fun as they pursue God together.
     
    In the spring the high school take a day away from the rigor of the normal school day and meets at a local church to learn about God and spend time worshipping Him.. This day helps students focus on what God desires them to be and together they get to spend this time in pursuit of their Creator.

11:1 Effect

Follow my example, as I follow Christ's example. 
1 Corinthians 11:1
The 11:1 effect is a mentoring and discipleship program that started three years ago to provide the opportunity for high school students to be positive role models for the younger students at Mount Paran. This year 70 high school students come in early every Wednesday to spend time investing in all the students Kindergarten through fifth grade. It is a special time as they share devotions, build relationships, and are examples of what it means to be a teenager who is pursuing God. 
 
Providing academic excellence in a Christ-centered environment, Mount Paran Christian School unites with home and church to prepare servant-leaders to honor God, love others, and WALK IN TRUTH.
