2021 Seniors Step Up for Christmas

Hello CCS families!

The 2021 Senior Class is supporting Turning Point of Columbus for their Senior Project this year. We are under a time-crunch to make this happen, but would love your support in this community Christmas opportunity. What we would like you to do is first pray about supporting this opportunity and then if you are able to donate money in order that we can buy Christmas presents for the Turning Point families. There are two ways you can help:

First and most importantly, is a monetary donation. This donation needs to be dropped off in the office by the end of day Wednesday, December 9th, which is only a few days away!

Second, you can buy gifts directly off the registry links below. If you select this option the gift will be sent directly to Turning Point. You MUST select the option in Wal-Mart and Amazon to send a gift receipt from Columbus Christian School. These purchases must be made by December 11th.

(**However, while we appreciate you buying gifts directly, the BEST way to support Turning Point is through a monetary donation, and the Seniors will do all of the shopping on Friday, December 11th.**)

Thank you for partnering with us and supporting a local organization in our community. With COVID impacting many families this season, every little bit counts. Thank you.

This is an easy way to show our teachers and staff how much we value who they are and all they do for our children. Thank you! - PTF Leadership Team

What's at the core of Christian education?

How well do you see? Most of us own a pair of glasses - glasses to help us see better, glasses to protect our eyes from the sun, reading glasses, glasses to "look" cool... When you put on those glasses, you see through a different lens. Your ability to see is fundamentally changed.

Christian education helps students learn to view the world through GOSPEL GLASSES. Every day, our teachers and students intentionally look at history, science, math, relationships, athletics, the arts and life through the lens of the gospel.

So what's at the core of Christian education? Listen to two of our Bible teachers explain what it really means to put on gospel glasses. What glasses do you have on today?

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14
