Hello Neighbor! This webpage is exclusively for YOU - the faculty and staff at Mill Road Elementary. We hope that you will find encouragement here. If you need prayer or just someone to talk to, our pastors and staff are available. We hope to see you soon neighbor!
I love new beginnings! New beginnings mean a fresh start and a clean slate. As you embark on a new school year, I just want to encourage you as you so diligently serve these precious little ones in our community. Education is a calling and the impact you make on their tiny lives each and every day is so very important.
Just because something is a calling, does not mean it is always easy. There will always be something that comes up that will create distraction and division, but I would like to encourage you with these words from the Apostle Paul to the church in Galatia:
"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers."(Galatians 6:9-10 NIV)
I believe what Paul is trying to do here is give the Galatian church hope that their work is not in vain. This is a timeless encouragement for sure. Your work can be really hard at times, but it is good work! Focus on the work you were called to do and trust that one day, there will be a good harvest, even if you do not have the pleasure of seeing it in person.
Teacher and School Staff Worker, your neighbors at Mount Calvary Church are praying for you and the impact that you are having in the lives of the children you have been called to work with. A new year means new opportunities but we know that the work can become tiring. It's okay! Take heart! Don't give up! We are praying you will have a good harvest!
