The Seventh-Day Adventist Church Manual Speaks… “To dress plainly, abstaining from display of jewelry and ornaments of every kind, is in keeping with our faith.”—Testimonies, vol. 3, p. 366. It is clearly taught in the Scriptures that the wearing of jewelry is contrary to the will of God. ‘. . . not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array’ is the admonition of the apostle Paul (1 Tim. 2:9). The wearing of ornaments of jewelry is a bid for attention which is not in keeping with Christian self-forgetfulness. SDA Church manual p. 176, Paragraph 4
Class attendance is mandatory. If you have visiting family or friends, it is your duty to let them know that you will not be able to miss any classes while they are visiting. Any absence must be approved by Seth Dixon, Phillip Sizemore, or Scott Moore. Excess absences for any reason will be grounds for dismissal.
Mandatory. One of LIFE’s strengths is the opportunity to use what you learn. Every student in all of LIFE’s courses will be required to participate in Outreach activities. Refusal to participate or skipping Outreach activities will not give you the opportunity to experience soul-winning first hand and will result in your dismissal from the program.
