Mezzanine Classes are IN!

Praise the Lord for what He is doing at Maranatha Christian Schools! We are "walkin' on sunshine" as we walk by faith into the new building and into His vision! The rain delay hindered progress, but we were able to get a Temporary Occupancy Permit for two classrooms enabling us to move all classes out of the Mezzanine!

Stay tuned for more exciting developments in the coming days!
Thank you for your prayers and support!

Mezzanine Moving Monday!

We're MOVING THE MEZZANINE CLASSES INTO THE NEW BUILDING! We have received our Temporary Occupancy Permit for 2 upstairs classrooms! Praise the Lord! The sun is shining, the Donor Bricks are here, the T-K bathroom is finished, and the landscaping is going in!

Teachers are packing up their supplies and our fantastic Facilities team is working to get everything in place to be ready for our first classes Monday morning! Thank you for your prayers and patience as we grow together here at Maranatha Christian Schools!

Check out the photos and video below (Mr. Jackson's class getting the good news!):

The lights are ON and the student chairs are IN...and the rain is coming!

This morning was all-hands-on-deck to unload the container before the rain starts falling. Thank you for your prayer and patience. Our amazing contractor and crew are working feverishly in between these unusually strong winter storms.

It was great seeing everyone last night for Open House/Info Night. Several of you asked if there is still time to donate to the Answering the Call Capital Campaign - the answer is YES! If you would like more information, please email the Development Department, or visit the Answering the Call website.

We would be happy to sit down and talk to you. We are truly blessed by how donors are continuing to prayerfully step out in faith and support God's vision for Maranatha Christian Schools!

p.s. Keep an eye out for exciting details about new developments for Arts and Athletics in the coming weeks - God is on the move at MCS!

Rain Delay

Hello Maranatha Family,

This is a strange place to be in, since we are usually praying for rain, but today we find ourselves hoping for dry skies. Unfortunately, the rain is delaying progress on the exterior landscape work on the new High School building:  work that is necessary for our occupancy permit from the County. Our contractor is working full-steam-ahead on the interior (which is nearly finished), and the furniture is shipped and on its way.

We will keep you posted as to the changes as soon as we get new information. Thank you for your patience and continued prayers and support!

New Sport Courts are Here!

WOW! What a difference a week makes! Have you checked out the back of the new High School Building? The new Sport Courts are here! Thanks to a generous donor, we now have three full-size courts, striped for basketball and volleyball, and two lanes marked for track! What a blessing! As you can see from this photo, we're already putting them to good use. We are Praising the Lord for generous hearts - and a little more elbow room!


Keep an eye out:  next week we should see the scaffolding come down and this Saturday they are scheduled to pull power to the new High School Building. Thank you for all your prayers and support!

Thankful for Everything

Thankful for Everything God is Giving
“ And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:19 NKJV


What an exciting fall we have had together: watching the new High School building grow right before our very eyes! We donned our hard hats and closed-toed shoes for tours; welcomed our Alumni Family; and saw God’s Vision for MCS come into view!

We are currently a little over a year into our $9.7 million, 3-year Answering the Call Capital Campaign. The Board of Maranatha Chapel stepped out in faith and secured a $5 million loan to begin Phase I. Our current pledges/donations and in-kind contributions are now $1.5 million.    

People are participating at every level – from teachers in the classroom to CEO’s in Boardrooms. The Development Department recently received two separate donations on the same day: one for 32 cents and one for $15,000. On the surface, it might seem one outweighs the other, but not so. The 32 cents came from the hand of a child who found it on Campus and said, “Use this for the building.” The other came because an MCS parent shared the story of Transformed lives…Transforming the World with a Foundation. We believe the Holy Spirit encourages givers to financially support MCS out of and alignment of passions, and not out of our own attempt to persuade them to do so.

We know many of you have been praying about joining us in the Capital Campaign. If you’re ready to jump in at this critical time, simply fill out everything online by clicking here or pick up an Answering the Call brochure and pledge form at the school office. If you have any questions, we are here to help! We are hoping to have all pledge forms turned in by December 15th.

We are truly grateful for the faithful partners who have stepped out and given – of time, resources, and prayer – to help raise this project from the ground up! Thank you for Answering the Call here at MCS! We are grateful for you!

Building Bridges!

The bridge from the Mezzanine of the current Gym to the new High School building is now connected! Thank you for your continued prayers for safety for our stellar team from Harper Construction, for smooth inspections and permitting, and for Capital Campaign partners to continue stepping out in faith the join us on this journey.
