In Bible times, people would often erect a pile of stones to let others know that something significant happened there. As you read the Old Testament, there are several references to God's people doing this as a sign of what God had done for them. In the same way, Zeeland Christian School wants to tell the world what God is doing here in the lives of students.
Walk in the door of Zeeland Christian School, and you encounter a large standing stone.
The stone is here for the same reason God asked the Israelites to place a stone on the bank of the Jordan River. It is a reminder of God's faithfulness in the past and of His greatness, power, and love for eternity, and it inspires teachers and students alike to share the story of God's salvation every day.
It is also a confirmation that at Zeeland Christian, we strive to be not only standing stones ourselves, but also to transform each of our students into a standing stone, a living witness to God's love and goodness.
Passing the Baton
Each of us has been given the responsibility to pass on our faith to those around us. At Zeeland Christian, one of the ways we do that is by physically passing a baton back and forth. Each student receives a baton when they start at ZCS. Inside the baton is a piece of paper. Each year, the student's teacher will write a note of spiritual encouragement. The batons travel with the student the entire time they are at Zeeland Christian. By Eighth Grade, students will have 8-9 years of notes from teachers about how the teachers have seen God working in the child's life.
