Why We Need Christian Education - By Mrs. Janet Etters, Principal

Christian education begins with the reality of God. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, one God in three persons, who created and sustains all things.  At the very heart of Christian faith we are taught to love God and our neighbor. This teaches our students to be loving, caring citizens and to show kindness and respect. Our Christian values shape our students’ character to act in an honest, just and responsible way. We encourage them to realize their God-given talents and seek the highest standards in everything they do. 

The academic instruction at Cornerstone Christian exceeds the instruction given in our public school systems. The fact that we have stricter standards of behavior, and higher expectations of academic standards, opens the doors for your child’s life of future satisfaction and success. The benefits of sound education that is offered at Cornerstone Christian are far-reaching and more long-term. True Christian education involves loving and edifying instruction, grounded in God’s gracious revelation.

While no school is perfect, Christian education plays a vital role in the training of our children, and I believe it is absolutely essential. When it comes to the future of our children, we must make Christian education a priority. (Please click here to keep reading)

Thank you Bennett Family!

Thank you Terri, Quincy and Quentin Bennett for organizing Cornerstone's participation in the Camden Christmas Parade and Lights of Lugoff Parade. The bus looked great and it was so well organized we just got to show up, walk and enjoy great fellowship. What a blessing your family is to our school.

It's planned and it's going to be fun but we need your help! How?
COME TO THE MEETING and help us create this event - January 14, 5:30. Meeting will immediately follow dinner about 6:15 and hopefully end by 7:15. (Some may choose to drive two cars if the kids need to get home.)

Areas needed: 
1. Planners
2. Publicity Volunteers
3. Race Master
4. Family Fun Course Planning
5. Recruit Sponsors
6. Involvement - we NEED you!

You can organize your family and groups from your Bible studies, churches, workplace, favorite stores to come and do the 5K @ 9:00 and/or stay for the family event @ 10:00. 

Why are we doing this? Cornerstone Christian doesn't aim to be a large school, but we do need to grow from our current numbers. We hope by making the Kershaw County area more familiar with our school, we will attract more families and grow as the Lord wills.

Did you see this?
