Memory Work

In Jeremiah 31:33 God says, “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God and they will be my people.” Memory of Scripture is an important part of growing as a Christian. Memory is a requirement at HLS and students are expected to know their memory work before they arrive at school.
