We want to partner with families to address the opportunities and challenges of living as a Middle School Student in this City, not only to equip First Cov families but also to serve and reach all the families of this city.
Spiritual development of Students and Family as a whole:
We wish to make Identity and First Cov a place where everyone feels welcome and can get connected with other families. Veering away from exclusivity and insularity we hope to connect everyone with the Common goal of answering the questions: Is Jesus Christ who he said he is? If so what are the implications of this in my life and the community around us? See also service below.
Identity Middle School realizes that a big part of raising a family in the city is the day-to-day activities and decisions. We strive to offer resources to families that help them answer these questions. We in no way want to suggest how families should answer these questions. We more want to provide the information so that families can weigh the pros and cons and make educated and Christ centered choices.
We believe that there are many different parenting styles and that each student presents different challenges and parenting strategies. We also realize that a student's spiritual development and a parent's spiritual development are not two separate things. We encourage these developments to be happening together and strive to help parents answer the tough questions that both they and their children have to achieve this common goal.
We strive to serve our community as a whole. We understand that the health of our families is affected by the health of our environment; that is the health of First Cov, our neighbors, neighborhoods, schools and teachers etc. We hope to be a visible and active presence in the City: reaching out to the poor and the marginalized, helping beautify our parks and schools, and helping people regain composure amidst the anxieties of the City.
