|2010-2011 Theme Verse|

|The Difference is Love|
One Mom's Prayer Based On 1 Corinthians 13
If my child speaks with perfect grammar, logic, and sentence formation, but has not love, he is only another educated man. If he develops his full human potential academically, artistically, or athletically, but has not love, he will be empty. If he spends a summer with a humanitarian organization and works his fingers to the bone, but has not love, he gains nothing.
Christ-like love is very different from worldly love. It is not motivated by money, or fame, or personal achievement. It does not center on my child. It centers him in a right relationship with God and in a body of believers. Love does not gloss over sinful behaviors, it exposes the Truth. He needs a school that shares that love...because that kind of love never fails.
My child's life on earth will someday pass away but things of eternity poured into him will endure. When he was a child, he talked like a child. He reasoned like a child. As he is becoming a man, he is learning to put spiritually immature ways behind him. Then he can have more love and be more ready for the day that he shall see our Lord face to face.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for Delaware County Christian School and for every Christian school that is sharing your Love. You are Love (1 John 4:16). Help our children to know You.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor. 13:12
Happy 2011! I trust that your start of this New Year has been full of God's blessings. For us at DC our start has been focused on two things: a new program for our high school students and a snow filled winter wonderland for everyone. I wanted to take this opportunity to update you on interesting happenings at your alma mater as well as some alumni news.
As the Alumni Coordinator, I encourage you to stay connected to DC through events and publications throughout the year. We are always interested in what the members of the Alumni Association are doing. Any information you would like to share with us concerning engagements, weddings, births, promotions, careers, etc., please contact me at email@example.com or fill out an Alumni Information Update Form on the Alumni webpage.
God bless you in the year ahead!
In His service,

New Program - J-Term
The new program mentioned above is the two week J-term for all high school students. In place of a week of review and a week of exams, the students were given the opportunity to choose an internship off campus or a course on campus that was of high personal interest to them. No one expected how successful this program would be! Here is a recap of some of the experiences so you can have a better idea of the details of the J-term…
“Students led Vacation Bible School in Bolivia with hundreds of children showing up, and many prayed to receive Christ. Students served in the Dominican Republic in life-changing ways. Students who were building homes in New Orleans were commended by our host as being one of the best groups of high school kids to work with that he has seen there. Students working in Marine Biology in Bermuda were learning and seeing things that they would not have seen in their lifetime here. Students on the Urban Ministry experience have seen and participated in various inner-city ministries and service agencies. Students helped Habitat for Humanity in Coatesville working outside several days in very cold weather to help build homes. And to be “left on campus” was not a bad alternative either, because there were so many options: Asian Fusion; Baking; Leading Worship; Screen Writing; Fashion Design; Baseball (with a visit to Cooperstown and Citizens Bank Park); Studying the Human Heart (including a visit to a morgue and seeing actual hearts); and many others. Nearly 60 students participated in internships. One student worked in juvenile court at the Delaware County Court House who witnessed kids coming in handcuffs. Her work was so valued by the county employees that she has been offered a summer job. Students doing internships have witnessed heart surgery, C-sections, orthopedics, and the workings behind global real estate investment companies. This innovative strategy (in the planning for nearly two years) was coordinated by Dan Steinfield and Nancy Homan, who both did an excellent job. This experience will be a wonderful opportunity for our high school students to experience four different J-Term experiences during their high school career.”

Please remember the school in your prayers. The Campaign for Transformational Leaders is on-going and the school has been working toward meeting the goals to receive the challenge grant. We need everyone participating in this challenge to earn the grant for the school and to support the teachers at our alma mater. To qualify for a matching $3.5 million grant, we need 35%% of alumni participating in this campaign (Alumni 35 Challenge).
