Decidedly Academic. Distinctively Christian.

Our Hope is in God Alone

The unthinkable has happened again. A gunman enters the classroom of an elementary school in Connecticut and opens fire, claiming the lives of 27, most of whom are children. It all happened this morning and the news in absolutely numbing. We can’t even begin to fathom the intensity of grief and severity of pain that these families and children—the survivors—are knowing right now. It is one of those moments in time that will forever be embedded in their memories. And it happens at a time of the year when we traditionally stop our routine to enjoy and celebrate the birth of our Savior, who came to earth so that we would know His peace, His saving grace, His love. We know that, in Christ, He alone makes it possible to transcend even the deepest wounds and it is to Him who we call upon today, this very hour. May His mighty presence be there for every Mom, every Dad, every child, every loved one whose life has been turned upside today. Our heart-felt prayers ascend to the throne before our loving God whose tender embrace and healing balm is so desperately needed right now. May our thoughts and prayers resonate with the psalmist who wrote long ago: “Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.” (Psalm 62:5)

We've had an action packed summer here at FCS! There have been over 45 field trips taken since June 2nd and we still have two and half weeks left! Over the past week Mrs. Robinson, drama director/teacher, has been in New York at a Broadway teacher's workshop. Her training included seeing four shows and being taught by actors currently on Broadway. What a unique learning experience that she will get to incorporate into her teaching at FCS! Photos: (1) pictured with headpiece from the original Lion King, (2) Q&A with cast from Come From Away, and (3) backstage with Chad Kimball, Tony award winner and star of Come From Away. #comefromaway Shop AmazonSmile (link in profile) today on Prime Day so that 0.5% of your purchase price is donated to the FCS Educational Foundation, which supports the school and important campus improvement projects like the new gym floor! #amazonsmile #primeday
