Standards of Conduct

“Whether then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the Glory of God.” I Cor. 10:31

“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things.” (Phil. 4:8.)

I will have a proper attitude toward my teachers, HEARTS parents and the GUMC facility.
I will offer to help a teacher, staff member or fellow student when a need arises.

“Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage to you.” (Hebrews 13:17)

I will not use any language, crude gestures, gossip, sexual speech, or any speech that is offensive to my Lord, while at any HEARTS activities or classes.
I will demonstrate integrity and truthfulness in what I do and say.

“Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, that it may give grace to those who hear.” (Eph. 4:29)

“nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.” (Eph. 5:4)

I will dress in a manner that is pleasing to my Lord while at any HEARTS activity or class.
I will not use or have in my possession anything illegal at any HEARTS activity or class.
I will not pair off or participate in public displays of affection at any HEARTS classes or events because this can adversely affect the unity within our group.

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you were bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your Body.” (I Cor. 6:19,20)

“No one should seek their own good, but the good of others.” (1 Cor. 10:24) 

I am willing to be held accountable for my own actions at all HEARTS events and classes and will lovingly hold others accountable for their actions.

“and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more, as you see the day drawing near.” (Heb. 10:24-25)
