I Corinthians 10:13 exhorts us to do all we do for the glory of God. Mountain View Christian School is so blessed to have faculty and staff who certainly follow that concept. Many sacrifices are made by our teachers to fulfill a call they believe is from God. With joy and thanksgiving for each child, they labor diligently each day to express the love of God and to make an imprint that will never fade in the lives of your sons and daughters. Please pray daily for God’s provision and anointing on their lives.
At Mountain View Christian School are very thankful for the many blessings we have received by being able to have your children with us, and we want to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!
