Our Lord’s picture of a seed falling to the ground, dying, and in its dying producing life in plenitude is a captivating description of how one lives a Godward life. Scripture continually reprises the theme summed up in Acts 10:25: “It is better to give than to receive.” Giving creates and enriches living—not only the life of the recipient, but also the life of the giver.
This year there has been much giving and, consequently, much living. Our school has been richly blessed by generous gifts to our annual and general funds to enable and empower continual growth in our mission to provide students with an excellent classical education founded upon a biblical worldview.
If you’ve witnessed one of the many great drama productions over the last year, you have done so under brand new stage lighting.
If you’ve enjoyed a middle school or high school band concert in the last year, you have heard the rich, dulcet tones of a new euphonium enriching the music.
Your child may have enjoyed a trip to a sporting event or field trip in a new bus procured this summer.
Or your child may have developed a friendship with a student who is attending CCS by virtue of tuition assistance monies given to the school.
And your Rhetoric School student is on the verge of experiencing another level of exploration into the natural world by virtue of the science lab renovations scheduled for this summer and funded by generous gifts to the annual and general funds.
There is a lot of life flourishing in the halls, classrooms, fields, and studios at Cary Christian School because you gave. And I am profoundly grateful.
If you haven’t given to the annual fund this year, there’s still time! Gift envelopes are on the way to your mailbox as you read this. If you are so moved, please consider planting another seed:
- A seed that contributes to further upgrades and developments in the science labs as well as science lab technologies that enhance the educational experience of our students.
- A seed that continues to make it possible for families to attend CCS.
- A seed that enables beautification projects around the lovely campus with which God has blessed us.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for your partnership in the gospel. Great is the privilege of laboring with you in the dawn of everlasting results.
