A Brief Communication from LCS
Attached is a letter from the Financial Team here at LCS.
Please join us for Lighthouse Christian School Open House on Friday, October 14. Devotions start at 7:00 pm. You will have a chance to tour the classrooms and see what Co-op has been up to. You can also enjoy some refreshments and fellowship before the evening is over. We look forward to seeing you! 6037 Phillipsburg-Union Rd. Englewood, OH 45322
Lighthouse Christian School & Co-Op Programs are being required by county codes to make some significant Fire & ADA updates if we are to continue to operate out of our current leased facility here at Salem Church of the Brethren. We have discussed and asked for support from our School & Co-Op Patrons as well as our School Support Group, and enough support was shown that the decision was made to move forward with the needed updates. There was a significant interest in helping out with labor as much as will be allowed by codes so as to help out with reducing project costs as well as to show good stewardship as we work together with Salem Church of the Brethren.
The initial cost estimate was $63,000 if the project is totally hired out. Salem Church of the Brethren has graciously offered to pay for 50% of the cost of this project which leaves LCS with $31,500 to cover. We plan to implement as much labor saving steps as possible, so do not know exactly what the total cost will be until further into the project. The LCS Board is thinking that if there is extra funds available at completion of the project these funds could be used to help SCOB with any other upgrades that are needing done at their facility.
The LCS Board is asking for those who are enrolled as well as those who feel led in supporting the continuation of the LCS – School and Co-Op programs… for your consideration in helping out financially with this project.
Please send your donations to:Brethren Charity Fund, P.O. Box 365, Brookville, OH 45309or to:Light House Christian School, P. O. Box 166, Brookville, OH 45309with a memo of“LCS – Fire/ADA project”and these funds will be placed into a separate line item on the LCS account, setup special for this project.
May the Lord Bless you richly as you consider this need!

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
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).
