Welcome to Livingston Christian Schools

It is incumbent on Livingston Christian Schools to train young Christian men and women to apply the truth of Scripture in their homes, their future careers, and in all of life and knowledge. Christian education calls for an educational process that puts the Bible at the center and asks the student to evaluate all he sees in the world through the eyes of God-because God is Truth. All must conform to Him or it is not Truth. Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” (John 14:6) In true Christian education, students, parents, and teachers learn to use the Bible to evaluate all of life. The Bible is life; it is the Living Word.
 
There is an important difference between a Christian and a secular viewpoint on any given subject. Even though knowledge is factually the same for both, no subject can be taught in the totality of its truth if the Creator is ignored or denied. Knowledge is purified by the recognition of God’s place in it. No other approach can be wholly God -honoring for parents and children as this approach through Scripture.
 
Parents and children in the school consider the Word of God clear in making Christian parents responsible for the education of their children. Education is not limited to the counsels of God revealed in His Word, but does include the counsels of God revealed in His world. These parents want their children to be educated at home and school with the consciousness that all truth is God’s truth, including history and geography, science, music, and the arts. Jesus Christ is to be central in all learning and living.

From the Desk of Mr. Nast

As a kid I bemoaned the arrival of Thanksgiving week because I was going to be out of school for a couple of days (only Thursday and Friday at that time), and I would miss my friends and teachers.  However, things were different back then.  Those years were less complicated: the Lions were always in contention for league leadership (remember Bobby Layne?); our high school choir was invited to join other choirs in singing at the lighting of the Detroit Christmas tree; mom made a delicious meal for our family, and we usually had another family over for dinner, as well; people seemed to be genuinely happy as we approached Christmas; and our church had activities seemingly every night of the week as we approached Christmas.  It appears that many of those things will be absent from Thanksgiving this year. We’ve been ordered to stay home and avoid mixing with others - a key component of Thanksgiving.  We’re fearful of what is happening in our state, our country and the world.  We need to preregister for church programs to avoid too many attending at one time.  Out of fear, parents keep children out of live schooling.  And that is just the tip of the mess we’re in.  However, in spite of all the discouragements we are facing this Thanksgiving we can continue to thank and worship God for all he’s provided - our families, our school and our churches.  I am also thankful for the people who volunteer to make our lunch program a safe and successful endeavor. Each day they interact with the students, assuring a fun lunch and recess for them.  And then there’s a very special group of folks who organized the auction this year and worked to make it a success.  Mrs. Sarah Slater, Kevin and Heather Autry, Mrs.Stephanie Shinaberry, and Mrs. Bonnie Johnson  - thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into the auction. Most importantly, I thank God for his provision of teachers, support staff, and board members and their commitment  to upholding Jesus Christ at LCS. On behalf of the LCS board and staff we wish each family a special time of remembering what God has done in each of our lives.  Happy Thanksgiving.

Moms in Prayer

Moms in Prayer has prayed for school families and issues throughout the summer and are continuing into the fall. Their group is very disciplined and they take their ministry seriously. However, we’d love to have the number of parents involved in the ministry grow. Many of the participants represent older students in the school and it would be beneficial to have an influx of moms of younger children, as well. It is not a major time commitment and we know that God honors prayer and those who fervently seek his will in their lives and the life of the school. Plus, it’s a way you can support the school without ever reaching for your purse.
