OUR SCHOOL’S MISSION
“Sunrise of Africa School provides a warm and loving environment, inspired by and founded on Christian Science values. Our school motto is “Strive and Trust.” Strive for excellence. Trust in God. We teach our children from a spiritual foundation to demonstrate their God-given qualities of intelligence, self-reliance, honesty, kindness and leadership.
The students are taught the importance of environmental sustainability and the urgency of protecting our wildlife heritage. Above all, we encourage our youth to become responsible citizens, develop the necessary skills to obtain work in their own country, take pride in their homeland and build a positive future for Kenya.”
WHAT IS CHRISTIAN SCIENCE?
Christian Science is all about LOVE and HEALING. We believe in a completely LOVING God who we can turn to in any situation.
“Christian Science is Christian. It’s based on the teachings of Christ Jesus, who said, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also…” (John 14:12). Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer and founder of Christian Science, said, “these mighty works are not supernatural, but supremely natural…” (Science and Health, p.xi:14). This can mean resolving difficult challenges with health, relationships, employment, and other personal and global issues through prayer.
Those who practice Christian Science are free to make their own choices about what to think and do in each situation, including health care. But Christian Science is so much more than a system of self-help or health care. Ultimately, it is a way to draw closer to our loving Father-Mother, God, as well as all of humanity. ” (http://www.christiansciencesouthbend.org/denomination.html).
The children and families at Sunrise of Africa School have benefited enormously from studying Christian Science and trusting that God can help them in all aspects of their lives.
