A message from the principal
Central Valley Christian Middle School is a place of community. We work together. We value others. We encourage one another. Simply, we do life together. And it’s a place of learning. We study all aspects of the gift of creation that God has blessed us with and endeavor to discover how we might redeem those fallen parts and try to put them back together, in a way that echoes Eden’s original beauty.
At the middle school we’re blessed to have a dynamic team of educators who love Christ and excel at sharing the wonders of His world with adolescents. From the intricacies of a single human cell to the complexity of an algebraic function, from the richness and depth of the Old Testament narrative to the wonder of literary creativity woven through classic adolescent novels, these teachers strive to unveil the beauty of creation to these precious middle school students and perhaps teach them a little bit about what it means to live in community together.
Our school theme this year is “Fully Devoted,” based on the quintessential picture of Christian community found in the Acts 2 church. The theme passage explains that the early church “. . . devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” They were 100% sold-out, completely committed, fully devoted to the work of the Lord. The result of the Spirit’s work and their devotion to the Lord was nothing short of awe-inspiring: “And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” Every day more folks came to accept the good news and become Christ followers for eternity. Chances are the Acts 2 church was a vibrant, booming, eclectic haven of grace, beauty, debate and curiosity, filled with a recklessly-devoted band of disciples. And that sounds like a pretty good description of the type of community that we strive to create here at Central Valley Christian Middle School.
As folks who teach the wonder that is the modern adolescent, we know the meaning of change and gradual growth. To train servants of the King, we partner with parents who love Jesus and we cling to the words of the apostle Paul: “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
Grace and Peace,
