RAMS Weekly News

September 9th, 2019

Welcome Back to School!

What a blessing to see our campus and classrooms full of students! New Life Christian School is celebrating our 32nd year of Christian school ministry. God has been faithful to NLCS through every year and I truly believe our best days are ahead. We are very excited to welcome 53 new families to our New Life family.

Thanks to generous donors last year and the commitment from New Life Church, we were able to make numerous physical improvements to our campus this past year. From new fire alarm systems to a new HVAC system to paved parking lots to driveway lighting to additional security cameras and much, much more, our campus is being transformed! More importantly, our theme for the 2019-2020 school year is: Be Transformed. This phrase comes from Romans 12:2, "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." Our prayer is that each of us will be transformed into the Christians God has called us to be. Please pray for our NLCS faculty, staff and administration as we strive to develop our students into Christian world changers who are rooted in faith, committed to service and dedicated to academic excellence. If I can serve you or your family in any way, please contact me.

Be Transformed,

Jo Anne Boles


P.S. This Friday, each student will bring home Ram Run Reach letters to be addressed by your family. Please address each envelope and return them to school by next Tuesday, September 17th. Our goal for our fall fundraiser is $30,000 to continue transforming the NLCS ministry. Thank you in advance for your generous donation and for assisting us in reaching thousands of potential partners in ministry!
