A Special Update for our Supporting Community

Highlights

We’re honored to share our mission with a wonderful community who lifts us up with their prayers, service and financial support.  We like to share with you how we are working to offer an exemplary Christian educational experience for our families at MCS.  So every year, we create an annual update – our MCS Report on Learning – that gives our supporters a taste of what is happening here at MCS.

Check out our Annual Report here!

Some highlights from the report:  We are happy to report that our school is thriving!  We have 270 students (PS-6th) representing over 58 churches.  We have a diverse student body with about 35% being of minority status.

Financials

We are thankful that God provides for our school through the faithful support of our community.  About 76% of our revenue comes from tuition: the rest (around $280,000) comes from charitable resources such as donations to the annual fund and interest income from our foundations.  Our numbers reflect how reliant we are on our supporting community!

Gratitude

Our hearts are full of thankfulness for all the volunteers, teachers, parents and community members who support our mission at MCS to provide academic excellence with a Christian worldview that engage each student in a lifetime of Christian discipleship.  Our passionate teachers are focused on preparing our youth to serve and glorify God with their unique gifts.  Thanks for your part in it!

 

MCS Students Who Serve

Preparing for a Lifetime of Service

Muskegon Christian School students enjoy sharing God’s love through service in our community!

Students decorated more than 1,000 lunch bags that were to be distributed by Kid’s Food Basket in Muskegon with uplifting messages and artwork.  Half of the fifth grade students spent an afternoon raking an elderly neighbor’s property, while others assembled snack bags for Kid’s Food Basket.

Mrs. Morrison’s 6th grade class was able to travel to International Aid  in Spring Lake for an afternoon to prepare product for their hygiene kit ministry. The students quickly unwrapped 6,144 toothpaste/toothbrush boxes and taped 3,852 bottles of shampoo.   They exhibited great teamwork and had a great time of fellowship too!

We also encouraged students to pray for and minister to others around the globe through a fundraiser.  Our students raised over $300 through “Fun-raiser Fridays” in May.  Water balloon tosses (involving our awesome teachers) and popcorn snacks were offered for students to purchase.   The funds raised went to two causes:  famine relief efforts in Africa (through World Renew) and hygiene kits sent by International Aid to people who lives are torn apart by disaster, illness or poverty.

We are always looking for new ways for our students to engage in our community!  MCS strives to create opportunities for our students to participate in Christian service in our community as part of their educational experience. Please share new possible opportunities with us by contacting us.
