Spring Annual Fund Drive - May 10, 2019 #ComeTogether
Dear Valley Christian Community Member,
In 1935 a group of faith-filled, God-fearing parents and ministers sacrificed, struggled and endured creating what we today know and love, Valley Christian Schools. The journey to “educate each unique student in cooperation with the Christian community so that he or she is equipped and inspired to make a difference for Jesus Christ in the world” has been beautiful, but not without struggle. God has led each step of the way. VCS is as committed today as we were 84 years ago to Christian education and the pursuit of excellence in everything we do.
My name is Brian Petteys. I’m the Middle School Principal. I’m also a parent of two current VC students, an alumnus of the class of 1993 and the Interim Development Director. I’m writing to ask you to remember. Remember your experiences or those of your children or grandchildren; remember the people you were with, your teachers and coaches, your counselors and mentors.
Remember the men and women of God who have chosen, and are choosing, a smaller paycheck in order to further Christ’s kingdom through Christian education. These people make a daily choice to educate each unique child of God. It’s because of these people that Valley Christian Schools is a beacon of light in our community, state, country and world. If I could choose, I would have every young person in my neighborhood attend our great schools knowing the positive impact it could have on their lives, their families and friends.
I’m asking that we come together as a community to pray for our schools, students, families, faculty, staff and administration. And, I’m asking that we come together as a community to give. Give in honor of the memories that came to mind as you read the words above. Give in honor of the generations to come. Annual giving is a huge blessing to the school, especially at this time of year. Your gift helps close out the books on the current school year and moves the school confidently into the next. Each and every gift makes a difference. In fact, the first $25,000 donated will be matched 100% by one of our generous donors.
Please join me and my wife Annie (class of ‘97) in giving to Valley Christian Schools. Thank you for your time, thank you for your prayers, and thank you for your support.
Blessings,Brian Petteys, Class of 1993
VCMS Principal, Interim Development Director
