A Message from Sarah Donovan, Principal of the Extended Educational Programs
In a few days my daughter, Elle, is going to turn one. As I reflect on the blessings of her first year, I think about all of you- TCS, The First Hope, and Preschool parents. We have all been inducted into the ‘parent club’ and are forever bonded by this connection. What a joy to know that we are all on this journey together, not only with God at the helm, but with the comfort of knowing we are not alone. We can reach out to one another for love, support, and celebrations as parents. I encourage you to take time to celebrate one another and the amazing work you are doing as parents. So grateful for all of you!

NEW THIS WEEK
What is the Gospel? – A Devotional from PJ Wehry
As we approach Easter, I think it’s appropriate to stop and think about the Gospel, the Good News, which we are celebrating. Paul tells us in II Corinthians 15, “Let me now remind you, dear brothers and sisters, of the Good News I preached to you before… I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.” This is a great starting point. Christ died, He was buried, and He rose again. What’s easy to forget is that Paul uses this statement to springboard an in-depth argument about the resurrection. For this holiday, remember the main point of Paul’s argument about the Gospel. “If Christ has not been raised, then your faith is useless and you are still guilty of your sins. In that case, all who have died believing in Christ are lost! And if our hope in Christ is only for this life, we are more to be pitied than anyone in the world.” As we celebrate Easter, do not forget the solid reality that Jesus now exists in his resurrected human body, just the beginning of a resurrection that will include you and me!
Spring Break and Easter Monday
The office will be closed and students will have no school or work assigned March 20-28th.
