Giving Tuesdays School Fundraising

“Thankful for NLCS Day” is on Giving Tuesday, December 1st

Today’s world is changing and therefore challenging. Our children are constantly bombarded by a culture that makes every effort to cancel out Christ from our society. Now more than ever, our young people need to be reinforced in their Christian faith that their families have worked so hard to maintain.

For nearly fifty years, North Love Christian School has been a light to families across the Rockford area.  NLCS provides young people with a quality education with a Christian world view, which helps them to build a stronger foundation for their future in Jesus Christ. 

During these unprecedented times, NLCS has faced financial challenges like so many Christian schools across our nation. Many of our traditional fundraising efforts that help to meet our school’s budget have not been able to move forward this year due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

To help meet these financial needs, we will have a “Thankful for NLCS Day.”  Your tax-deductible gift to North Love Christian School will help this ministry to continue making a difference in the lives of young people for Jesus Christ.

  • Please pray how God might have you contribute.
  • Donate below on this page.

May Update

Dear Parents,

Thank you for the continued support and encouragement you have shown during this “Shelter in place order”.  As we transition from the temporary plan to the “New Normal” for school, here are our plans.

Initial plans:

  • We will be conducting the academic learning part of school as “normal” as possible until May 22.
  • All events that include a gathering have been cancelled except for graduation. 
  • We are considering alternatives to some of the events that are on the calendar.  Details will follow if we do have an acceptable alternative.
  • Please contact your individual teachers with questions on classroom or learning matters.
  • Dates and times will be scheduled for drop off and pickups for materials still at school.
  • Please contact Mrs.Kamin concerning the plans for the boxes of chocolate and money that you have.
  • We will be setting up a parent and student protocol for end of the year testing.

I know this is a difficult time. The verse God has given me is Hebrews 13:5:  “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”  God bless you as we continue to pray for each other.
