I continue to be amazed as I witness God’s provision and favor for the ministry here at Forcey Christian School. I’m thankful for another year to be a part of this great team of teachers, teachers’ assistants, office administrative staff, and you, our FCS parents. I’m honored and proud to be a part of the mission work that we do here each day. 

I covet your prayers for another productive and blessed new year of educating students in their lifelong journey for the glory of Jesus Christ.

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 

~2 Timothy 2:15
