Creation & The Revelation of God

Nature is filled with spiritual lessons for mankind. The flowers die only to spring forth into new life; and in this we are taught the lesson of the resurrection. All who love God will bloom again in the Eden above. But nature can not teach the lesson of the great and marvelous love of God. Therefore, after the fall, nature was not the only teacher of man. In order that the world might not remain in darkness, in eternal spiritual night, the God of nature met us in Jesus Christ. The Son of God came to the world as the revelation of the Father. He was that "true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world." We are to behold "the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." (Ellen White, Review and Herald, Nov. 8, 1898.)

Wexford County Jail Bond Referendum

We need your help! We have only two (2) weeks to collect 2500 signatures to petition for a public vote on the jail bond issue! Good intentions, not acted upon, will remain only that. Commit to go out, and pray for God's mighty hand to move on our behalf however He wills. (Esther 4.) We have information that will help you collect signatures. Please check out the document below!

Important: PhysicalGenesis Surveys

Last week, information on PhysicalGenesis was sent home in student Communicators. Our goal is to complete the surveys at home by the end of this week. If you are unable to do this at home, please see Mrs. Graham this week to take the survey after school using school computers.

Remember; parents, students, and teachers are asked to participate in the study. Before students may do so, however, parents must:

  1. Give parental consent for your student(s) to participate in the study
  2. Complete a parental survey

Your active participation will make this study a success and lead us to improve the health of our students. The North American Division of Education will use the results to improve the school program as well as to market Adventist Education to families.

Thank you very much for taking the time to help!

5K Training

We are continuing to train for our May 25th 5K at school! Please keep bringing your tennis shoes! Thank you! It makes a big difference. Also, train with us! You can do it on your own, or contact us to train with a group.


The Michigan Conference has established a fund to financially assist needy students at all levels of Adventist education. If you would like an application for this Scholarship Fund because you are experiencing a real financial need, please keep the following in mind:

  • There are limited funds for distribution, so please pick up and turn in your application as soon as possible.

  • Funds awarded for the 2015-2016 school year will be paid directly to the school:

    A. The student must remain enrolled to receive these funds.

    B. No funds will be released until after 2nd semester begins.

  • The notification of awarded funds will be announced as soon as possible. It is the plan to notify each applicant, and the school they are attending, on or before August 10, 2015.

  • Applications must be postmarked on or before May 13, 2015. A student letter and a grade report need to be submitted with the application.

  • Letters of recommendation need to be emailed or postmarked on or before May 13, 2015. Applications without recommendations have a lower chance of being selected. Letters should include information about the applicant’s academic performance, history, reason for need, and any other sources of assistance.
  • Applications may picked up at the Northview SDA school office.
