Nurturing Hearts and Challenging Minds
For Service in God's Kingdom

Scholarship Drive


Recently, in the middle of a classroom discussion about the book of Revelation, one of our 5th graders publicly accepted Christ into his heart.  His classmates enthusiastically gathered around him and offered a prayer; both giving thanks and asking for God’s continued care and guidance. They thanked the Holy Spirit for working in the boy’s heart and asked God to continue strengthening him in his faith. 

For the 2016-17 school year we have adopted the theme, “A Great Cloud of Witnesses,” and we are using Hebrews 12:1-2 as our anchor text.  On that morning two weeks ago in that 5th-grade classroom, 20 students and a teacher surrounded each other as a great cloud of witnesses who encouraged, supported, and ultimately pointed each other to Jesus Christ.

You, too, are an important part of our students’ “great cloud of witnesses.”  Your support, whether it be through prayer, mentoring, committee membership, event attendance, or volunteerism has a profound impact on the lives of our students.  Your witness and contributions serve as a meaningful and effective way to provide students and families the opportunity to develop a heartfelt understanding of their Creator and their place in His kingdom.  We, as educators, have the privilege of witnessing this expressed daily, in ways such as this first grader describes.

Each year we provide an opportunity for you to play a role in directing young lives to Christ through the Scholarship Drive -- a tuition funding tool which assists students in receiving an excellent, distinctively Christian education.  Because of your kindness year after year, numerous families have been able to enroll their children in NMCS who may not have been able to otherwise.  

As we already begin to make preparations for the next school year, your support is needed.  Your gift of $25, $50, $100 or as large as you are able to give will assist families to more easily afford Christian education.  Ultimately your generosity will serve as a way to point many young people to knowing Jesus Christ more deeply.

On behalf of the NMCS students and families, I would like to thank you in advance for your support of the Scholarship Drive as we, as a cloud of witnesses, carry out NMCS’ mission: Challenging minds and nurturing hearts for service in Christ’s kingdom.  Your generosity truly makes a difference in the lives of many.

If you have any questions regarding the Scholarship Drive or any other program at NMCS, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Thank you, again, for your faithful support of NMCS.

Grace and Peace,

Dirk Walhout, Superintendent
