Greetings from SCCS
Being a part of Strathroy Community Christian School is very exciting! This could be due to having a dedicated staff that is willing to learn, excellent programs and extra-curricular events for the students, a community that invests time, money and energy into the cause of Christian education or even high marks from those who do quality control for our school. While all of these are true at SCCS, the real excitement comes from living and walking in the way of the Lord.
The Holy Spirit is working in this school and the community which supports it. 1 Corinthians 2:9-13 states: “However, as it is written: ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him’ but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man’s spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.”
We firmly believe that God has prepared a way for this school so that we bring honour and glory to His name. We are seeing God revealing His plan for SCCS and it is exciting to follow His will in obedience. Not all events are always clear to us or seem like what is best from our eyes. Abram was called to leave his country – he received very little information about his trip with destination unknown – but he obeyed. Peter was called to walk on water – no flotation devices to be found and only the impossible in front of him – but he obeyed.
It is my prayer that SCCS will continue to receive the blessings of the Lord through obedience to Him.
