Dwell: Scripture Memorization Program

This June, Aaron Denlinger, Catherine Kochie, and Michael Kochie introduced Arma Dei Academy’s Scripture memorization program, now known as Dwell on the basis of Scripture's injunction to "let the word of Christ dwell in you richly" (Col. 3:16), to the broader classical Christian world at ACCS’s Repairing the Ruins Conference. Their conference presentation can be viewed below. As part of their presentation, Dr. Denlinger and the Kochies shared their vision for putting the entire book of Ephesians to song with a goal of Arma Dei's entire student body memorizing most if not all of the book during the 2020-2021 school year.…

May 8 Chapel: Our Last Virtual Chapel!

Join us for a Scripture memory marathon during our final chapel of the school year! We will sing ALL the Scripture memory songs we have learned this year and challenge you to sing along without looking at the words (thus, no order of chapel included this week!). Mrs. Wenger will wrap up our chapel theme for the year by teaching on the fruit of cultivating 7 virtues in our lives.


May 1, Chapel: Worshiping Together Virtually

Mrs. Ross has been teaching music at Arma Dei since January of 2014, currently loving every minute of teaching Kindergarten through fifth grade students. As we focus this week's time of worship on Jesus' love for the unreached, listen in to hear Mrs. Ross share testimonies and pictures of her recent mission trip to Nepal. The Knedlik family will close our time together by leading our Scripture memory song from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. Please download the Chapel order of events here.



Over the past year, we have been forming our students' biblical worldview and transforming them into the image of Christ by memorizing scripture together that corresponds to the monthly virtues and character traits that are expanded upon during chapel. This program is now called; Dwell. God's word tells us in Colossians 3:16, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God". We pray this scripture memorization program will dwell deeply into the hearts, minds and souls of our students…

April 10, Chapel: Worshiping Together Virtually!

It has been a long month. We have had shining moments and moments we would rather forget. There has been sorrow and joy. There has been chaos and peace. There has been anxiety and rest. The one word that seems to be missing from our world's vocabulary is hope. Hope, however, is the one thing we do have. It is constant and unchanging in the life of the believer. More than ever, I believe it is important that we cultivate hope within our families and community. As we look forward to Resurrection Sunday, consider ways that your family can proclaim hope…
