Jesus, You Are the Way
Things change all of the time! If you look at fashion or music styles you will quickly see this to be true quite. For example, what were you wearing in the 1980s and would you wear it today? If you are really brave you can look at politics and the role of religion specifically to see how life is continually adapting and modifying in our changing world. Strathroy Community Christian School (SCCS) has changed as well over the past 61 years and plans to do so again in the near future by building an addition. While some changes are exciting and energizing it is also nice to have reliability, faithfulness and consistency to count on when changes are happening. God is our rock at SCCS. Our faith in Him and His word is the foundation of this school. While our expression of this reality may look different at times we can confidently say God never changes. He is true, He is faithful and He is worthy to be praised. Our school theme this year is Jesus, You Are the Way, and we will be declaring this truth many times over in the 2016–2017 school year, the Lord willing. One of the most quoted Bible verses along this theme is John 14:6, “Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man comes to the father but by me”. While many things in your life, your school or your relationships need attention, it is important for us to recognize this important truth – Jesus is the way. At SCCS we follow His lead as we educate His children. Our vision statement speaks of transformative education of mind, body and spirit and declaring Jesus is the way is part of that vision. We strive to train young people to trust in the saving power of Jesus Christ for their salvation, but also for their daily strength needed to study hard, build others up and bring glory to Him through their actions. It doesn’t matter what decade it is, serving Jesus and following His way never needs to change. We ask you to pray with us for God’s blessings on our upcoming school year! Blessings!
