Eagle Update - August 2022

Eagle Update

Madison Christian School August 2022 Newsletter

Welcome to the Madison Christian 2022-2023 school year! As we prepare to receive each student, our prayer is to honor the Lord with every word and action. In Colossians 3:17, the Apostle Paul writes, "And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him." This is a high standard, but one we will strive for each day.

We desire to fulfill the MCS mission to partner with parents and churches to lead students toward God, scripturally educating the whole person spiritually, academically, emotionally, socially, and physically to become strong Christian leaders. Thank you for your trust and partnership as we embark on another exciting school year!
