We are pleased to say that our 2017 Fall Service Day was a success: the weather was beautiful, the participants were productive, and ultimately, the Lord was glorified. Because we know that the Lord is especially mindful of those most needy and vulnerable among us, we glorify the Lord when we serve in His name.
The students were not the only ones in a giving mode: They also received back from our service recipients. One of our seven service locations prepared venison stew for the students as a token of thanks. Another couple gave the work group some eternal Words for encouragement:
“Be rich in good deeds, … for in this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life” (I Tim. 6:18-19).
Although this event was an opportunity to serve others, it is also part of our annual fall fundraising campaign. The actual Service Day has passed, but please continue praying for the financial needs of our school. For returning students this year, tuition and all fees are $4,400/year. The next affordable option in the Charlotte area is a 4-day school at $8,485/yr. A profitable fundraising campaign means we can bridge the gap between what we charge versus what it costs, without having to raise tuition sharply.
The success of our affordable tuition rate relies on our annual fundraiser and you can play a key role in helping us reach our goal. We are praying that the school reaches its fundraising target of $50,000. Would you be willing to give a tax-deductible gift? If you can help, please send your donation to the address below.

Thank you for your consideration!
