And we’re off! The 2012-13 school year has officially begun. By now most teachers, kids, and parents have settled somewhat in to a routine. Pastor Jelmer Groenewold did a great job at opening chapel challenging us to be rooted in God’s Word, and followers of Christ in all we do.

Our theme for the 2012-13 school year focuses on the Gospel of Mark. Our theme verse is from Mark 10:14, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”

This paints quite a picture of our loving God. He’s a God who loves our children more than we do. He wants to see them succeed, to hear them praise Him, to feel them love Him in return. His Kingdom belongs to them because their faith is new, exciting and fun. Bible stories are new, learning to say prayers all by yourself is exciting, and singing new praise songs is fun!

It is our hope at Sunnyside Christian School that we lead your children to Jesus, that we do not hinder them, but that we encourage them in their new faith. 

Please partner with us this year as we strive to bring the “Kingdom of God” to all the children at SCS.
