Change for Christ Week, April 26-29

Students may participate for $1 a day donation in Change for Christ Week for April 26-29. They may wear the appropriate color shirt with appropriate jeans, uniform shorts or uniform pants. The jeans/pants/shorts (appropriate fitting shorts) may even be the day’s color.

Monday, April 26 : Being Mean = Purple
Students will be mindful of the reality that the world in which we live is a fallen world (i.e. fallen into sin, ruin, violence and misery). Today students will wear purple as a visual reminder to pray for themselves, their neighbors, this city, this state, this country and the world – for the gospel of peace to be made known from one end of the earth to the other.

Tuesday, April 27 : Greed / Poverty = Green
Students will be mindful of the greed present in this world and will seek to examine their own hearts for this destructive tendency. Students will be challenged to think about all that they have been given and develop a greater appreciation for the “items” with which they have been blessed.  Being grateful for what we have sets us free to be mindful of those without, and in turn be a blessing to others. Students will wear green on this day.

Wednesday, April 28 : Addiction = Black
Students will be taught that due to the nature of sin – our hearts have sought out many devices to which we give our unbridled affection. Students will pray for themselves and those who do not know Jesus, and seek to be mindful that the LORD created us, that we are created in His image and our hearts are restless until they rest in Him. Students will wear black on this day.

Thursday, April 29 : Unbelief (in Christ) = Red
This week will be punctuated with the reality that the only lasting cure for the ailments we have recognized this week (Tuesday – Thursday) is Jesus Christ Himself. For violence will in the end be put away, Isaiah 2:4, “And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they learn war.” For greed and poverty no longer establish wealth or the lack of it but rather one is made rich in Christ no matter his standing on earth. Psalm 16:11 “You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.” And in Christ all of our addictions to worldly things and endeavors will be put far from us, “As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us” (Psalm 103:13).

2021-2022 Kindergarten-8th Grade School Supply Lists and EPI Order Opportunity

We have partnered again with Educational Products, Inc. (EPI) – a national school-supply program. This is an optional service that is being offered to our campus families for the 2021-2022 school year. We have provided our class supply lists to EPI and they have created an online ordering system for our families to use. By using EPI, this will drastically reduce the amount of time that parents will need to spend to shop for their child’s school supplies for the coming school year. If you order a supply kit through EPI, your child’s kit will be directly shipped to the school and will be waiting for them in their classroom in time for our Back-to-School events! Here are some important details to be aware of:

  1. Our school is not making any money from this sale. While schools have the option of utilizing EPI for a fundraiser, we have passed on that option and the prices that you see listed are the wholesale prices from EPI.
  1. A copy of this year’s supply lists are included here. Any items that are highlighted on the list are not included in the EPI kits and therefore would still be your responsibility to secure prior to the beginning of the school year. If you choose to shop on your own for your child’s supplies, you are welcome to do so by using this list.
  1. The EPI kits include name-brand, high-quality supplies and the kits will be individually packaged for each student that orders them.
  1. Orders must be submitted online by June 1, to avoid rush shipping charges. Free shipping is included for any orders that are shipped directly to our school. If you wish to have your child’s kit shipped to your home instead, there is an additional shipping fee for that option.
  1. Ordering information for EPI is included here. Be sure to enter our school code (CHR145) and then select the grade level that your child will be in for the 2021-2022 school year.

 

Honor the Cross Easter Chapel Service

All junior academy through 8th grade students should bring an artificial flower to school with them on Monday, March 22, as we will be blossoming our cross in preparation for Easter!

Our Easter chapel service will be on Thursday, March 25, at 9 a.m.

Due to COVID-19 regulations, we will not be able to host parents or other guests for this service but we are thrilled that our kindergarten through 8th grade students and staff will be able to worship together socially distanced in the SECC-Southwest sanctuary.
