Let’s be honest. This world can be a messy place – more like the smelly, dirty manger in Bethlehem than the pristine nativities that adorn our homes and churches. The messiness, the busyness, can wear us out.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
~ O Holy Night (Adolphe Charles Adam, John Sullivan Dwight, Placide Cappeau)
Our hope was born over 2000 years ago, found swaddled in cloths and lying in a nasty trough. A light in the darkness. We’re thankful that we can point students to our Savior. He is the reason that we can rejoice!
The middle and high school bands and choirs combined their talents for an evening of joyous music for the annual Christmas concert last week.

The Drama class presented Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol – A New Version for the Stage by John Jakes, with its timeless message of redemption and transformation. Great job to the cast, crew, and directors!

Why be ordinary? Students in a high school English class decided to take a creative approach when they sang, rather than read, the introduction to Homer’s Odyssey aloud in class.
Reminders of the hope we have in Jesus are throughout the school. Rejoice! Our Savior has come!
