Junior High Bible

About Junior High Bible

7th and 8th Grade Bible
Bible class is integral to the culture at Calvary Murrieta. We are excited to create a space for our students to dive deeper into God's word, grow in their relationships with Christ, create connections with their teacher and peers, and be able to talk about real-world issues from a Christian perspective.

In Bible class this year, our students will be studying the Old Testament. With our curriculum, students will have an overview of the big story of Scripture: "Throughout the course, students will study and recognize the big story-- Creation, Fall, and Redemption, in the Old Testament in individual narratives, and they will develop an understanding of the Old Testament’s application to the New Testament. Ultimately, students will learn to conduct their own independent Bible studies as they gain principles of hermeneutics and an understanding of biblical theology." Most importantly, they will be pointed to Jesus and God's plan of salvation for the world. Students will read their Bibles every day in class, watch videos that give them a general overview of each book we study, and complete assignments designed to reinforce  the  important concepts. In addition to studying what the Word says, students will explore ways we can apply scripture to our lives and have the opportunity to practice living out their faith through various service projects.

Mr. summers

Mr. Micah Summers is one of our awesome Bible teachers! With experience as a classroom teacher and years of youth ministry experience, we are excited he has the opportunity to teach and disciple our Jr. High students. He attended Providence Christian College in Pasadena with a degree in Liberal Arts, with concentrations in Education and English. His favorite part about being an educator is meeting students where they are at, showing them how powerful stories are, and helping them discover the ways literature points us to the Gospel—the most powerful story of all.

Mr. Singh

Mr. Steven Singh has been with us at Calvary since 2018, and we are blessed to have him! He has over 15 years of teaching experience and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Social Science from San Diego State University. This year, Mr. Singh teaches Junior High History, Life Science, and Bible–but many of our football players know him as Coach Singh. His favorite thing about teaching is getting to work with students. He loves helping them learn new things, laughing with them, and getting to know them, but his greatest passion is helping them grow in their walks with Christ. Mr. Singh says, “They say if you do what you love for a living you never work a day in your life…I haven’t had to work in a very long time.”
