Lion Pride @ Surrey Hills

Definition of Pride: King's Gate Christian School Family

Let Their Light Shine

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." Matthew 5:16

Service Learning

Our 4th-6th graders are part of our Service Learning class which is taught by Amanda Richards. Just a glimpse of the items they are covering:

  • character development
  • characteristics of a leader
  • teamwork
  • importance of serving others

It is our Service Learning students who are performing skits which showcase the monthly character trait at LionPride each month. We are thankful for the many ways they are serving King's Gate.

"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms." 1 Peter 4:10 NIV

Going Into the Community

In December, the 4th-6th graders went and worked at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. The Regional Food Bank is the state’s largest hunger-relief organization and a member of Feeding America’s network of Food Banks. They provide enough food to feed more than 136,000 hungry Oklahomans every week, 37 percent of which are children. Since its inception in 1980, the Regional Food Bank has distributed more than 613 million pounds of food to feed Oklahomans living with hunger.

The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma depends on our strong volunteer force to fulfill their mission of "Fighting Hunger...Feeding Hope" in central and western Oklahoma which is where our 4th-6th graders played a huge role. Every day, volunteers sort, pack or make enough food to fill a semi-truck! Our students packaged enough meals to feed 1,188 kids. This experience impacted our students! According to one of our students, "I liked doing this because I knew that I was helping other kids who don't have food. We created an assembly line to send food home with students so they could eat over the weekend."

We are so proud of our Service Learning Students who represented King's Gate Christian School in our community to share the light of Jesus with all.

"In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the LORD Jesus himself said: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive." Acts 20:35 NIV

Merry Christmas!

Today was our last day before Christmas Break. We pray for God's richest blessings for you and your family this Christmas season. In the incarnation, God became Man and Jesus came and dwelt with us to show us the glory of the Father. It is a joy to partner with you in Christian education, helping your child see and pursue the Glory of God in his or her academic studies and in their eventual vocations. We trust that your Christmas break will provide you and your family with rest and joy.

We will see you back at King's Gate on Thursday, January 4th, 2018!
