Support NMCS

How can you support Northern Michigan Christian School?

 

Prayer

First and foremost, we value your prayer.  1 Thessalonians 5:16 says "Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."  We praise God and rejoice in his faithfulness to Northern Michigan Christian School for over 100 years.  Join us in giving him thanks, in good times and bad, for His unfailing love and mercy.  Pray for the students, that they, like Samuel, will "continue to grow in stature and in favor with the Lord and with people. 1 Samuel 2:26"  Pray for the teachers, that "In everything [they would] set them an example by doing what is good. In [their] teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose [them] may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us." Titus 2:7-8. Pray for our Board and Administration, that the Lord would give our leaders a tender heart of compassion toward those they lead and serve. “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering” Col 3:12 (NKJV).

Scholarship Drive

Won’t you prayerfully consider a gift to the 2016-17 Scholarship Drive to provide tuition assistance to current and future families who are committed to providing a Christian education to their children, but for whom the cost of Christian day-school can be prohibitive. The need is great; for the upcoming academic year we need to raise at least $175,000. This will provide assistance to approximately 40 NMCS families.   Click here to find out more about the NMCS Scholarship Drive.

Legacy Giving

As Christians, each of us is a steward of whatever God has entrusted to us.   In the final distribution of their assets, Christians can share a powerful testimony to their heirs about the importance of stewardship.  Through proper planning, they may also make the largest charitable gift of their lives to a Christian ministry like Northern Michigan Christian School.  

Not sure where to start?  Here are two resources that can help:

Barnabas Foundation

Offering individuals and families the opportunity to discuss estate planning from a Christian perspective is important at Northern Michigan Christian School.  That is why we are members of Barnabas Foundation.  Barnabas Foundation encourages people to develop an estate plan which meets their individual and family needs and reflects their values, including the support of Christian ministries that are important to them.  A Christian perspective on stewardship is what distinguishes Barnabas Foundation from others who provide estate planning services.

A Christian professional from Barnabas Foundation will be happy to visit with you, provide information on specific concerns and answer your questions.  They will provide confidential, objective estate planning at no cost to you.  To find out more, please contact Jenny Closson at Northern Michigan Christian School at 231-825-2492 or call Barnabas Foundation directly at 1-888-448-3040.
