Lighthouse Christian School 2016/17 Financial Needs

Dear LCS Supporter…

Thank you for the opportunity to be considered for your support of Lighthouse Christian School.
As we write this, we are in the hustle and bustle of preparing for another school year, which involves setting up, cleaning classrooms, etc. Much more for the staff... the countless hours they spend as they pour their hearts into preparing to instruct our children does not go unnoticed!
We feel blessed to have all the teacher positions filled. The Lord has provided for LCS in many ways this year. In January we didn’t know how we were going to financially make it to February. PRAISE THE LORD, we made it through the year. It is only from him through each one of you that felt led to give to LCS that it was possible. So thank you and May God Bless each and every one of you for coming alongside us in this endeavor!
The vision of Lighthouse Christian School is to provide students with a strong academic education coupled with Biblical principles as taught by Jesus Christ.
Our method of fundraising has been limited almost exclusively to general announcements and informational letters like this.  We understand by our own experience and talking with administrators of past and present schools such as our own, we will need ongoing financial support above what tuition provides, both now and in the future.  It is our desire that this is viewed as an opportunity and not an obligation.  It is only real when the Lord lays it on our hearts to give.  May God’s name be praised as we seek His will.
Last fiscal year our target for donation income was not met. Tuition has not been raised but we encourage those patrons who can, to give freewill donations. The budget for the 2016/17 school year shows a need of$65,950.00in free will donations.
Also as you will see in a separate notice… There will be a need to support the Fire/ADA upgrades that are needing to be made here at the SCOB Facility as well. May God Bless you as you consider these opportunities to give.

Please send your donations to:
Brethren Charity Fund, P.O. Box 365, Brookville, OH  45309

Or to:
Lighthouse Christian School, P. O. Box 166, Brookville, OH 45309

In closing, we ask your prayers on the behalf of the families of this school and in a broader sense, all Christian families seeking to educate their children.  We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world……(Eph. 6:12).

Sincerely,
The LCS Board
