Moline Christian School celebrates its 104th year of providing families with a quality, Christ-centered education. God is good! Moline Christian has a beautiful heritage, a legacy if you will, of not only being academically strong, but equipping young people to make a difference for the kingdom. As we embark on another year, it is good to take a moment to reflect on what this past year was like. There was uncertainty around every corner, changes made at a moment’s notice, fear rising up where it had no place, and many other forms of stress and anxiety. Did these things show up in your life? Your family’s life? If it did, you were certainly not alone. One of my own personal experiences and challenges with raising four children was to continually “lift my eyes to the hills” as David stated in Psalm 121. Where does my help come from? The Bible boldly states that our help comes from the Lord. My family had to continually make sure the lens we used to view what was happening in our world was clear and lined up with God’s Word. No easy task, but worth the effort.
As I am getting to know the Moline Christian community, God’s faithfulness from generation to generation is evident. It is woven into the very fabric of this community and it is a priceless gift. With some unknowns still hanging in the balance, our theme verse is not only timely, but brings comfort and peace that only God can provide. Psalm 33:20-22 states, “We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in you.”
The staff is so blessed to partner with you for this upcoming school year. Let us wait in hope to see what the Lord does in us and through us.
