Homecoming & Spirit Week

Ben Lippen School, the Mountain of Trust, was established on the message of Jesus, who in John 10:10 said, “I have come that that they might have life, and that they might have it abundantly.” The promise of an abundant life in Christ guided school leaders to select Ben Lippen’s colors: green denoting life and growth and gold representing God’s radiant glory.

So what does it mean to #LiveGreenLoveGold? Precisely what it meant in 1940. Protection and plenty. Solid safety and deep soul satisfaction. Life in its fullest for the Glory of Jesus Christ.
