Plan for your family’s future

Stewardship is not about raising money; it’s about raising Christians who willingly trust God.” – Unknown

When it comes to a willing trust in God, education is not incidental.  That’s why HCS pursues partnership with parents who are already following Christ and raising their children to willingly trust God as well.

Our children must know that God is the source of all truth and that He alone is worthy of our time, talents and resources.

If you are looking for guidance as you plan for your family’s future, Barnabas Foundation may be able to help.  Take a look at how they serve families and the benefits they bring to yours.

Because of Highland Christian School’s partnership with the Barnabas Foundation, their services are available to you, free of charge.

Walk-a-thon 2018

It’s time to gear-up for the the Get 1: Give 1 Jogathon!  The Get 1: Give 1 Jogathon is an opportunity for students to participate in the joy of getting & giving.  We are raising money to buy a Gaga Ball pit for the HCS playground but we ALSO want our students to experience the joy of charity!

Half the money students raise will be used to purchase a Gaga Ball Pit for Highland Christian School.  The other half will be given to an area Christian organization that serves children.  (SHHHH! We know who this will be but are keeping it a secret until the gift is ready to give!)

HOW:
Students will predict how many laps they are able to walk/run in the time they are given.  They will then ask friends and family to sponsor them!  (Enter Your Pledge Online)

If each student raises $25, we will raise $9000
If each student raises $30, we will raise $11,520
If each student raises $50, we will raise $18,000

Highland Christian School

Jr. High chapel focused on "noticing" people today. Chapel started with a mock up of the old game show "To Tell the Truth" with the World Champion Table Tennis Player. No one guessed who the real champion was for no one noticed her. Mrs. Huiznga then brought the message home and read 1 John 3:16 - 24 from the Message bible. "...This is why we ought to live sacrificially for our fellow believers, and not just be out for ourselves. If you see some brother or sister in need and have the means to do something about it but turn a cold shoulder and do nothing, what happens to God's love? It disappears. And you made it disappear." We must notice those people who are hurting, lonely, worried and interact with them. Let them into our community. Let them feel the love that God has for them. ... See MoreSee Less
