Our mission is to grow and learn together, firmly rooted in Christ, so we can glorify God and bear the fruit of service to others.

One day as Jesus was standing by the sea of Galilee with the people crowding around him and listening to the word of God, he saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fisherman, who were washing their nets. He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon Peter, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink. When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken, and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon’s partners. Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will catch men.” So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.”

This story is a reminder of God's grace and forgiveness. Peter had already given up everything in order to follow Jesus, only to deny Him and return to the family business of fishing. Once again Jesus has an encounter with Peter and invites him to come back and follow Him. Jesus' words echo through the halls of our Christian schools. Come, follow me, and I will send you out to fish for people.

There is no greater desire for us in Christian schools than to see our children grow in faith, be equipped for service, and become builders in God's kingdom. We give thanks to God for Edgerton Christian Elementary School, where fish are caught and where fishers of people are trained.

LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!!
