He Is Good

Gratitude + Giving = A Season of JOY, Hope, Love, and Peace!

No photo description available.
Hopefully by now you have heard about our CCS annual Holiday Missions/Service Project. Mr. Greenly, the organizer of our projects, sent an email about it a couple of weeks ago, but just in case you missed it...this year our school is working together with several local organizations to share the JOY, hope, love, and peace of Jesus during the holiday season! Like we have over the last few years, our elementary school is partnering with the Twin Valley Food Pantry to provide toys for children in our community who might not otherwise be receiving gifts this Christmas. Jr. Cougars can bring in new, unwrapped toys to donate by this Wednesday, 11/20. Our gifts will be presented to the Food Pantry at chapel on the morning of November 20, at 8:20 am in the gym. All are welcome to attend! We look forward to worshiping and praising Jesus our Savior with you!

God Of Hope

Shine the Light of Peace to Share Jesus JOY!

Every new school I begin praying at some point during the school year before to ask the Lord what His plans are for our elementary program, our Jr. Cougars, and our elementary dream team, and this year was no different! It turns out that our I.U. school counselor, Mrs. McCullough was praying along with me and I didn't even know it until I received an email from her this summer. It was revealed that God was leading and He led us to the same idea/vision to build upon BLESS. This year, in addition to the components of BLESS, our focus will be to share Jesus JOY by shining the light of His PEACE  to one another and many others!  Our focus verses are:

"So then let us pursue what makes for peace and mutual upbuilding."  
Romans 14:19 

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful."
Colossians 3:15

We celebrated the introduction of the theme for this year at our first elementary chapel of the year as well as the Jr. Cougar "Day of Peace." The day included writing class and individual  "peace goals", making lanterns, making hands to create the word PEACE to hang in the elementary abode, team building activities in the gym, and of course a picnic lunch and extra recesses. We ended this special connection day with cool and refreshing "peace pops." (The "peace pops" were passed out quite peacefully with no squabbling over colors. Whoop! Whoop! :)

Give You Rest

Sweet Summer Greetings to our beloved Jr. Cougars and their families!

How quickly the waves of summer are rolling out to sea! It's hard to believe we are floating into August! While most of us long to stay basking in the rays of the July sunshine, a few are setting their sails towards the first day of school! Along with the many JOYS that go with starting a new school year, one of our family's favorites is school supply shopping! As a little girl I was always super excited about purchasing and using my new box of Crayola crayons, especially if I could convince my Grandmom to get me the big box with the little built-in sharpener! ;)

The countdown is on until the Jr. Cougar Carnival. Snowmen are being built and excitement is building! Whoop! Whoop! Supplies are piling up in the frosty air and we are making lists and checking them twice to make sure all the details and people are bundled up and ready to go! About a dozen carnival games will add to the arctic blast of time at our Winter Wonderland. We need you, our mommas and dads with warm hearts, to help man the ticket, prize, and game booths (game, supplies, and directions will be provided. :)  Hot off the presses is our "Sign Up Genius" so you can volunteer to join in the festivities and share your time, love, and smiles! Sign up HERE! :)  

For two of the games we are in need of numerous empty 12 can soda boxes and empty and clean 2L soda bottles like the ones pictured below.  If you have one or two in your pantry that you are able to donate to us, please send the empty boxes and/or soda bottles into school to Mrs. Brenner by Friday, 1/19/19

We are counting the snowflakes until we get to chill out with your Jr. Cougars and you at the carnival!

Invitations have been sent to all the churches we have registered with the school from your enrollment forms. If you have had a church change since completing your enrollment form, please help us update our records and include your pastors in this special time by emailing me ( the name of your new church and pastors.

Next week, Jr. Cougars, with the help of their teachers, will be making personalized invitations for their pastors. Please help your "littles" and "not so littles" ;) hand deliver or "snail mail" their invitations.

Thank you for helping us pamper our pastors!
