The theme of grade 5 is responding to God and deepening students? understanding of God's covenants with His chosen people, and His continuing revelation to them. These units present many heroes of the Faith who responded to God's call as examples of faithfulness, loyalty, self-sacrifice, obedience, love, justice, and social responsibility.
Through the study of these great figures, the student learns to respond to God in terms of personal faith and the basics of Christian morality and ethics: the Ten Commandments and the teachings of Christ found in the Beatitudes and Parables, and as elaborated on in the letters of St. Paul. God Calls Us helps students understand who they are as persons of God, and how they are to act as Orthodox Christians. It is also an introduction to Church and salvation history.
