Dear New Covenant Families and Friends,
With prayer, planning and great anticipation, New Covenant Christian School was founded over 31 years ago. Since its founding, God has blessed New Covenant immeasurably. We are grateful for the heritage of founders who dared to believe by stepping out in faith to build a Christian school in Lebanon. From humble beginnings with a handful of students, our school has grown and now boasts 261 students in grades K4 through 12 and more than 40 staff and faculty. Part of phase 1 of our Capital Campaign was to improve our current facilities and in the summer of 2014 we spent about $250,000 in cash on some great improvements. As of April 2016 we have raised about $431,000. The renovations included new floors throughout the building, new windows, thermostats, lighting, gym floor upgrade, painting, and much more. Click here for more renovation specifics. However, even with these upgrades we are losing the ability to accommodate the growth of our student body and the expansion of our extracurricular activities. We now need to continue to step out in faith to re-imagine New Covenant Christian School for the future to “Build Today, Impact Tomorrow.”
We believe our purpose as a Christian school is to give our students the right tools and the best Christ- centered education they can get. Why? Because we believe God is asking us to do more to impact the community, to become difference makers for His kingdom and to tangibly impact the world by first touching the lives of our students and families.
I, along with the Board, our pastoral advisers, our faculty and staff, continue to ask God for His direction on the next steps for our school. As most of you know this means expanding our school through a 20,000 sq. foot building project. This expansion will come in the form of a Student Life Center that will house additional classrooms and take care of current athletic needs and requirements.
To build, we need a campaign…Our goal is not simply fundraising, but the strengthening of our children to be ever more faithful, vibrant and committed to Christ. We believe, with God’s guidance, we can do this!
The theme of our campaign is “BUILD TODAY, IMPACT TOMORROW” and that is what we are seeking to do. It is not just about a building or renovations; it is about the building of faith and trust in our God. Renovations will occur not just of the physical building, but of the heart as we learn to trust Him for more. Will you partner with us as God physically and spiritually transforms New Covenant?
We are asking for your support. We believe that as we unite around this vision, generously committing our gifts of faith and resources — each doing our fair share — New Covenant Christian School will be positioned to continue the legacy with which we are entrusted with renewed vision and boldness. We trust in God’s promise that “with Him all things are possible.”
