Our spiritual theme for the year has now been revealed to all of our students! Each student has received a theme shirt with the phrase Rooted in the Rock representing our theme verse, Colossians 2:6-7

"Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in himrooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.

We are very excited to get to focus on this amazing passage this year.  This passage presents us with four key areas of focus that we will be discussing throughout the entire year.  We will talk about:

1.  What it means to walk in Him and how we do that
2.  What it means to be rooted and built up in Christ and what it means for our daily life
3.  What it means to be established in the faith and what God's foundation is for our lives
4.  What it means to abound in thanksgiving and how we can find reasons to be grateful no matter what is going on in our daily lives.

We hope that you will join us in the family chapels as we embark on this great journey together.

Theme t-shirts may be worn any day as part of the school uniform, other than Wednesday Chapel days.  Every time the students wear the theme t-shirt, they will be reminded of the verses that we are studying this year. If you would like to own one of this year's t-shirts, there are some limited sizes and quantities available for purchase in the school office for $16. 
Grandparents Day at FCS is coming up on Wednesday, September 14th. Students' grandparents are invited on campus for a special time of fellowship and worship. Download or print this invitation that you can share with your children's grandparents that will give them all of the details. We do ask that they RSVP using the form at www.faith-christian.org/grandparents. The event webpage also includes a campus map and parking information that we encourage grandparents to view beforehand.
We are looking forward to gathering as a Faith Family this Thursday at 6:30pm to discuss the business of the school. You can view the agenda for the meeting here. 

Remember: High School parents are strongly encouraged to attend as there will be an informational meeting about the spring trip to Washington DC immediately following the association meeting. 
School picture day is Friday, September 23. Students must be dressed in uniform. They may wear chapel dress or regular uniforms. No theme T-shirts please.
Students are welcome to join Student Leadership Council on the field for a short time of prayer on Wednesday, September 28th at 8:00 am.
Friday, September 30th is Twin Day. Students may be out of uniform, but all clothing needs to abide by personal appearance standards.  Get a friend or two or a group together and show your school spirit by dressing alike!
