Cross Lanes Bible Church began their month-long March for Missions with “Education Sunday,” a day to recognize the educational ministries of the church: Bright Beginnings Preschool and Cross Lanes Christian School.
Mr. Eddie Riley, CLCS administrator, recognized alumni and parents, grandparents, and family members of students past and present.
The littlest students began the March 5 service with Mrs. Cheryl Boyd, director of Bright Beginnings Preschool, leading them in a scripture recitation, a song, and a hand bell performance.
Mrs. Libby Shamblin, elementary supervisor, Mr. John Koster, middle school supervisor, and Mr. Michael Cumberledge, high school supervisor, each testified of passion and praise for our school.
Our talented middle and high school students provided vocal music. Freshman, Miss Lydia Tucker, sang a solo and Mrs. Raquel Mack, CLCS music teacher, directed her middle school and elementary choir in a selection of songs.
Miss Kiersten Edge, senior and CLCS student since kindergarten, spoke of her love for the school and the godly influence of teachers. Although she excels as an athlete, she realizes the value of a Christian education over sports and does not regret her decision to remain at CLCS.
Pastor Buckley introduced Mr. Casey Legg, 2018 CLCS graduate and retired kicker for the WVU football team, the guest speaker for the special Sunday morning service. Casey recalled some funny memories from his days at CLCS and shared with the congregation how his identity is not in his performance but is in his relationship with Christ.
Thank you to all who took part in this special Sunday and to all who have supported and prayed for the educational ministries of CLBC!
