2017-2018 School Theme:  Building on the Promises

 

Dear Rehoboth Parents and Students,

My name is Mr. Bob Ippel and as Rehoboth’s Interim Executive Director I would like to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year. When you come onto campus in August you will see that construction of the new high school has begun. The structure sits on top of stable soil that was imported to give the building a better foundation. 9,000 cubic yards of “bad” soil was replaced with 9,000 cubic yards of the better soil. Situated on “solid ground” we pray this building will serve Rehoboth for years to come!

My prayer is also that you will see a more significant building project going on at Rehoboth- that is in the “building” of our students. My prayer is that Rehoboth will help provide a solid foundation where students get to know the Triune God and are equipped to love, serve and transform the world in His name. The foundation upon which we build our lives will greatly impact how we face the future. As Christians we must continuously evaluate the “old soil” which must be replaced with the “new soil” so that we will go forward on solid ground. This can be a quite a process, but we are confident that God is building an amazing school community, one student at a time.  

When you look at the buildings on campus, view them as the stones of a cairn or rock pile.  In the Bible, God’s people constructed cairns to remind themselves and their children of God’s faithfulness- that He is a solid foundation and One in whom His children could trust. Those same stones served as guides for those who wandered to find their way. How fitting that this school year we will celebrate the theme “Building on the Promises.”  We are definitely a people “under construction.”  I look forward to watching God at work at Rehoboth in the 2017-18 school year.
 
Mr. Bob Ippel
Interim Executive Director
