“To equip God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.”  Ephesians 4:12    EPCS Theme Verse 2011-2012

East Palmyra Christian School.  Come.  Discover Who We Are!

Thank you for considering us as a possibility for your child’s school community for the coming year. We encourage you to discover who we are. As a Christian Pre-kindergarten through high school, our purpose is not just to present a Bible class to our students. Nor is it just to begin and end each day with devotions. Yes, it is those things too. But a Christian school encourages Christian living within its community. It teaches for Shalom. It teaches and models grace. It advocates that all of education is to be carried out inside a Christian framework, acknowledging that all of life is religion, that everything we do and say is under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and that we as God’s people are to live responsible, God-glorifying lives. It means that we teach and learn about Mathematics, English, Science, and all the other host of glorious facets of God’s creation in that light, that they are integral parts of God’s creation, that we must use what we teach and learn for God’s glory, to redeem God’s kingdom here on earth, and to build each other up. We are to be Christ-like.

East Palmyra Christian School is just that, a Christian school, whose mission is “to offer Christian education that integrates faith and learning through a Biblical worldview. We strive to equip our students to develop their gifts, to become discerning disciples, and to joyfully serve God in each of their callings in their community and world.”

But it takes more than the Christian school to accomplish all of this. Through God’s grace, the home, the church, and the school must work together in a child’s education. Together we touch the lives of our children.

Thus we encourage parents to become part of their children’s education, and we allow for much parent involvement at EPCS: volunteering in the classroom, in field trips, in fund-raisers, in playground monitoring, and in committees.  EPCS is a Christian community in which all are invited to participate.

Come. Discover who we are!
