STCCS is very excited to partner with Fellowship Church to host the Watoto Children's Choir. We would like to extend an invitation to our community to come out and hear the choir perform at our school on March 30th at 11 am in our gym.

We believe this will be a great opportunity for our students and community to worship our amazing God with children from a different culture and corner of our world.

Here is more information about this event from Fellowship's Facebook page:

Often, as Christians, we talk about a Biblical worldview. In fact, many of you have probably heard this exact statement before: “St Thomas Community Christian School is led by a Biblical worldview.” But what does that actually mean? How is that different than a school that doesn’t look to the Bible for direction?

Simply put, being led by a Biblical worldview means that we look to the Bible for guidance. We trust and prioritize what it has to say above all else. For example, our society promotes the idea of self-reliance. In fact, quotes like “Self-reliance is knowing and trusting that you will always be there when you need you the most” by Ty Howard are often praised and children are taught to believe in their own ability to overcome all challenges.

But, as Christians, we know that we will often fail ourselves and that Jesus is the only One that will always be there for us and never fail us. Certainly, there is an aspect of knowing yourself and understanding your own ability and competence to bravely do the work that God calls us to do in His Kingdom; however, self-reliance isn’t the groundwork for our understanding of our self-worth. Scripture is.

Furthermore, being led by a Biblical worldview means that we turn to the Bible for an example and deeper understanding of what our school community ought to be like. In the book of Acts, we see a description of the church that demonstrates how Christians are called to live out their faith in community. Community is a critical part of who we are as a school and the value that we place on the culture that we cultivate at STCCS.

This is only a brief introduction to how St. Thomas Community Christian School is led by a Biblical worldview. If you would like to know more about our vision for Christian Education in St. Thomas, please don’t hesitate to give us a call, send us an email, or come and visit our school. We would love to tell you more!

Vision Statement: An engaged school community that is led by a Biblical worldview where every child is disciple and educated.
