It is hard for me to realize it, but this is Thanksgiving week and I have so much for which I am thankful. I am thankful for a God that loves me and desires that I do those things necessary to live with him eternally. I am thankful for Jesus who died for my sins. I am thankful for my family with whom I will celebrate Thanksgiving, God willing. I am thankful for all the students, teachers, staff, and patrons at Boyd Christian School. Finally, I am thankful for God blessing this school in the past and pray he will continue to do so in the future.
We continue to have a good school year. Our students and teachers are working hard and the staff is so consistent in its support. However, none of this would be possible except for the support of the parents and patrons who have worked tirelessly in the different fundraising activities. I regret that we seemingly have to continuously ask our parents and patrons to support this or that fundraising activity. However, that is the way it is. We stand at a little over $40,000 in our effort to raise $120,000 through the 100 for $100 a month for 12 months. We seem to have hit a wall since Applefest, but I am convinced that with God’s help, we will achieve our goal before the end of the school year. If any of you know of an individual who could give a substantial amount toward this effort, I would appreciate hearing about it. If I need to visit with anyone who can give but need to hear about what we are trying to do, please let me know.
My spirit continues to be lifted up by our students and staff. I have never worked in an atmosphere as conducive to learning as we have here at BCS. The students are eager to learn and our teachers work hard to have lesson plans prepared that are challenging. Truly your children are in good hands being taught by Godly men and women. They are being nurtured in the ways of the Lord and I am sure this will prove beneficial for Christ’s kingdom in the future.
Please keep BCS in your prayers. Tell others of the benefits of a Christian education. Encourage those needing a tax break to give to Boyd Christian School. If you are preparing your will, please consider leaving a gift for the school. You will be investing in the future of the church.
God bless all of you and your families during not only the Thanksgiving season, but for the rest of your days upon the earth and most importantly, eternity.
Weldon Parkinson, Headmaster
