This school year marks the 30th year that CHCS has been serving the needs of families in the greater Cadillac area who desire a Christian education for their children. Every year has been a testament to God’s provision. We have NEVER started a school year with enough money, on paper, to complete the year but God ALWAYS provides. We KNOW that it is in God’s plan for CHCS to continue training the next generation of Christian leaders to be academically excellent and spiritually mature. God provides for the needs of Heritage through the obedience of His people. THANK YOU for being part of God’s plan!
If you came to the All School Family meeting, you heard about our latest blessing: A $15,000.00 matching challenge! We have until Friday, November 16, 2012, to raise $15,000.00 and receive the matching amount. That would mean $30,000.00 for CHCS! At the beginning of the school year, we have a budget deficit of approximately $34,000.00. That is after ALL tuition is paid and the regular, average amount of gifts arrive. When the funds come in through this matching challenge, we will be very close to a balanced budget.
30 Years, $30,000.00
It is a real blessing to receive this opportunity so early in the school year. We also know that it might present a real challenge to our school families due to book and supply fees also being collected at this time. Because of that, the donor of this matching challenge has agreed to allow us to extend the ending date. At the school family meeting we told you we had until Oct. 26. We are hoping that this extension allows our school families to participate in this blessing for CHCS. School families who make a gift toward this challenge will have their fundraising commitment credited with the amount of their gift. Won’t it be wonderful to say that God provided $30,000.00 at the beginning of our 30th year!
“Our Heritage” (the CHCS quarterly newsletter) will be out early next week. Of course, this matching challenge will be part of it. This newsletter will be reaching about 500 homes. Please pray with us that God will move in the hearts of His people to support His work at CHCS. Your copy of “Our Heritage” will be in your school mailbox.
