Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right,

whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is

admirable–if anything is excellent or

praiseworthy–think about such things.  -Philippians 4:8

THANKSGIVING – WHAT A WONDERFUL TIME TO GIVE GOD THANKS!

Thanksgiving is also a time for sharing just as the pilgrims and Indians did at that first Thanksgiving.  They each brought food, and it was a delicious meal enjoyed by all.

It has become a tradition here at Mountain View Christian School to do the same.  On Friday, November 22, 2019, the students, teachers, and staff will enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving lunch.  There will be no charge for the meal; however, we are asking that each class member bring the items listed below, except for the desserts, to the school by Monday, November 18, 2019.  The desserts should be brought to the school on Thursday, November 21st.

Below is a list of items each class member is asked to bring.  We hope to once again have a wonderful meal and time of fellowship as we celebrate an early Thanksgiving at MVCS.
