By the time you read this, the gleaming halls of Trinity Christian School will be filled with footsteps, the lockers with books, and students and teachers alike will be learning their new routines and roles. But, today is the last day before the students arrive; the last day of adding the finishing touches to bulletin boards and lesson plans. The new annual theme is on the wall. We’re ready.
While walking through the building one last time before the ensuing bustle, an intense gratefulness settles in. Needs that were unmet just weeks ago are now finished products. The floors are gleaming due to the work of volunteers. Landscaping, cleaning, painting, have all been completed in time for students, because people responded to the call.
In another week or two, an electronic sign will greet families and visitors as they rise the hill into the school parking lot. The sign was gifted to the school by one donor, while the installation is being provided by another. The elementary program will benefit from another generous gift, as an unexpected donation was recently made to that portion of the school. The gifts range from time to talent, from financial to practical. The size or value of each gift is not the focus. What is humbling and amazing is what God can do when each part contributes what He has laid on each heart to give. As we enter this new school year, we want to thank the Giver of all good gifts for His provision. And we want to thank all of those who have given of their time, talent, and treasure to see the mission of Trinity Christian School go forth.
