A Fellowship Christian School Blog
Dear Fellowship Families,
This week, I would like to share a word of encouragement from Nehemiah 6:3 - So I sent men with word to them, saying, “I am doing a great work and I cannot come down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and come down to you?”
As I reflected on this verse, I thought of all that God has done and is doing at Fellowship. Thirty-five years ago, a group of Jesus followers listened to God’s call to open a covenant Christian school. Their obedience, perseverance, and faith laid the foundation for all of us. Today, over 900 students walk the halls of our state-of-the-art facilities on our fully, self-contained campus. Our students, grades PreK through twelfth, enjoy robust academic, athletic, art, and STEM offerings that encourage them on their journey to discovering the unique path God has created specifically for them. With record enrollment, God is allowing us to expand our reach as we aim to inspire students who live with purpose and lead with intent for His glory alone. God has blessed our school beyond measure, and to participate in His mission here at Fellowship is truly humbling.
God is not only at work in our hallways; He is at work within each of you. Thinking about Nehemiah’s words, “I am doing a great work and I cannot come down,” I want to encourage each of you as you face adversity, challenges, and distractions. You are doing a great work that God has designed purposely for you. He is building His kingdom through you. He has chosen you specifically to be the parent to your children, to be an integral part of this Fellowship family, and to influence others for His purpose. No matter what seeks to distract you, keep your eyes focused on Jesus, God’s great story, and the part He has for you to play.
I am thankful for this community of followers who help me maintain focus and serve as a tremendous source of encouragement. I pray for each one of us to remain focused on Him, committed to our work, and thankful for every opportunity He gives us to serve Him.
Grateful and focused,
Dr. Kathryn M. Teston
