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

A few of us remember, mostly from the accounts of our parents, WWII and the effect it had on people. I was born after the war, but my folks told me of the fear followed by the determination that gripped the nation.  When 911 occurred, all who were old enough to understand will never forget what they were doing when they turned on the live coverage and watched and wondered how such a thing could happen. We felt for the people involved and prayed for them, but that was from afar.  It didn’t affect most of us personally. We could see it, but it wasn’t nearly as oppressive as something that affects our daily lives like the virus has. It has changed a lot at LCS, most noticeably the way we deliver education. But it is also affecting what parents are doing and how they are grappling with the disruption to their norms and children who are bored.  It’s affected income and added fear about the assets people have accumulated and much more. During these times I’m trying to see this from the perspective of my relationship with God. I think God is saying, “Here I am” in place of all the things we typically rely on during challenging times. Whether it’s our position at work, our toys (electronic and otherwise), our personal contacts, or our portfolios - none of them provide the hope and peace that only he can give.  And he may be waiting for us to grasp on to the one who we so often ignore because we don’t have time. We have a lot of it now.

The interview committee has chosen our replacement for the beloved Mrs. White beginning next fall. Mrs. Julie Byers, a former LCS teacher and sister-in-law of our Mrs. Michelle Byers, has agreed to jump right in and carry on when Mrs. White retires at the end of the year. Mrs. Byers earned her BS in elementary education at Indiana Wesleyan University and currently teaches K-2 reading and phonemic awareness at HT Smith. We are excited for Mrs. White being able to join her husband in retirement and pleased that God has provided Mrs. Byers to continue on the work in second grade.
