"Community Christian has the heart of Jesus! - 2011-2012 is our first year at Community Christian…. And you would wonder- how could someone who has been there a short time give a testimony for it. Well, for the last 7 years both of our children have been in another Christian school. We have found that although the other school buildings might be larger and the facilities newer—our children were missing out on the spiritual guidance that only a Christian school is allowed to provide. In every day conflicts, our former school was failing to show all the children how to deal with them in a Christ-like behavior and thought process. This was a true conviction to my husband and myself, which led us to seek out another school for our children.
Community Christian allowed our children to “try out” the school for a day. Our children were thrilled... they came back already having a bond with children that they only just met and it prepared them for starting the next school year in a new school.
The school is more organized and efficient than the larger school we came from and provides many opportunities for us to get together with other families who share our same beliefs.
Although Christian education isn’t “free”… my husband and I continue to make sacrifices to make sure our legacy… the next generation in our family… can be a witness for Him. Our cars are not the newest and we don’t have the newest electronic devices… but to us, what we give our children to prepare them for their future is much greater than these things.
There is much more that I would love to tell you about our experience… if you have any questions… please leave your name and number with the school and I will be glad to get back with you."

"We had been a homeschooling family for several years; then we found CCS as an answer to our prayers. We feel very comfortable at CCS- it is like a church family. The teachers are genuinely interested in investing in our children's future. Our children have blossomed at this stage of their spiritual, educational, and social development. Being a part of CCS has been a great blessing to our family. We love CCS and hope to be a part of the CCS family for years to come. "

I am blessed to have worked at Community Christian School since the early 1990’s. During this time, I have seen and experienced many changes and chapters in the school’s life. There have been facility and playground renovations, curriculum enhancements, fine arts programs, team sports opportunities and the implementation of computer systems.
There are a few things that have not changed – Our mission to create a Christian learning community to train students to know, love and to serve the Lord Jesus Christ, and to equip them spiritually and academically for life. Another thing that has not changed is the sense of family we have here. Once you have been a part of the CCS family, you are always a part of the CCS family. I cherish the friendships I have made with the many parents and staff members over the years. I have kept in touch with many teachers and families that have moved or have been called to serve elsewhere, and they all say the same thing: that 'Community Christian will always feel like home!'
I have had the joy and rare opportunity to watch several of my former first graders grow in grace and develop into fine, fruitful young men and women. Being a teacher at Community Christian School is not a job to me, it is a calling and a precious ministry."

"The employment-application forms I filled out were a strong confirmation that Community Christian School was a place I wanted to teach. Two and one half years ago, my wife and I moved to Florida to be near and assist her elderly parents. I had taught in a Christian school for 30 years, and I wanted to find a school in this area where I could continue teaching. After a visit with Mrs. Earls, the principal, I was given an employment application. I rejoiced as I looked through the questions asked of me. Community Christian was just as interested in my Christian philosophy on education and personal Christian testimony as they were in my academic background and teaching experience. They valued what I value—academic basics with Christ at the center and the Word of God as its foundation. We want each student to experience life “to the full”.
Education should be based on truth. I know of no one who intentionally sends their child to school to be deceived and believe lies. The Psalmist writes, “…the word of the Lord is right and true” (Psalm 33:4). Paul writes, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (II Timothy 3:16-17). Doesn’t that sound like a good foundation for education? I enjoy teaching at CCS because that’s our stand. Imagine trying to teach children how to live abundant life without the principles of God’s Word—principles for relationship, character development, behavior, and even how to think. Through Christ, God’s Word, and God’s Spirit, staff and students alike can be led “into all truth” (John 16:13). Life to the full includes freedom, and the truth sets free.
I consider it a privilege and blessing to be a part of God’s education ministry at Community Christian School where students can learn about life—what it is, where to find it, how to seek it, and how to live and experience it 'to the full'."
