Spiritual Emphasis Week at WTCS

Monday, September 10:  Spiritual Emphasis Week kicks off TODAY with “Walk Thru the Bible” happening at 9-10:30am & 1-2:30pm for grades K-5. Parents & family are invited to attend!

This event is designed to education children about the Bible using highly entertaining, interactive methods. The goal is that each child has an overall understanding and is so EXCITED about the stories in God’s Word that they will begin to read their Bible daily.

 

Wednesday, September 12:  Spiritual Emphasis Week continues at WTCS. This morning, Youth for Christ presented a video “It’s My Life” by Cam Fell Productions. Students in grades 6-12 were asked to be respectful during the video presentation; and to learn something & be encouraged!

The main takeaway from the presentation was to take responsibility for your life and make the right choices. Students were given two challenges for the day: Ask to see a smile from someone; and know that you are an Amazing Beautiful Creation of God.

Check in with your middle & high schoolers after school today & see what they thought of the day.

John 16:33 (NIV) “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Williston Herald: “Trinity Christian Hosts Annual Event”

Williston Herald

9.5.18

by Mitch Melberg

 

A popular annual event will help raise money for Williston Trinity Christian School and spirits for those in attendance.

Williston Trinity Christian School will hold its annual Fall Fundraising Banquet and Auction on Sept. 22, featuring dinner, auctions and entertainment. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. with the start of the silent auction. The annual event raises funds to benefit WTCS, with both silent and live auctions showcasing a variety of prizes to entice participants.

Terry Haugen, director of development at WTCS, said the auction is one of the highlights of the banquet.

“We added live and silent auctions to our banquet two years ago, and they have been very well received,” he said. “We are looking forward to fabulous support from our families and community.”

Attendees will be able to bid on a multitude of unique items, including a week long stay in a Red Lodge cabin, tickets to events such as the Moscow Ballet’s Swan Lake, hand-crafted furniture items and memorabilia autographed by North Dakota native and professional NFL player Carson Wentz. Haugen added that the auctions will also feature a variety of gift cards and baskets donated by local businesses and residents, and that their donations have been an important addition to the event.

“We are so thankful for the amazing support that our business community and individuals are showing through their donations,” he said.

This year’s entertainment is provided by comedian Gordon Douglas, who has been doing comedy for nearly 30 years, as well as being involved in the ministry. Douglas’ comedy has taken him to 37 states and four different countries, visiting a variety of schools and conferences, and has been featured on several tv and radio programs.

The dinner portion of the banquet begins at 6 p.m., with the live auction and guest speakers rounding out the evening. The event looks to be an entertaining one, and WTCS Administrator Cory Fleck invites residents to come take part in the night’s festivities.

“We hope the community will come out and support our auction and enjoy this fun, laughter-filled evening that we have planned,” he said.

Tickets are $25 each, but are limited. To purchase tickets or for more information on the Williston Trinity Christian School Fall Banquet, call 701-774-9056. All proceeds from the banquet and auction benefit Williston Trinity Christian School.

Who is Gordon? He is someone who lives and loves to laugh! His comedy skills took him from the nightclubs in Philadelphia to Hollywood – and then ended up in ministry!

Learning from his comedy hero Red Skelton, Gordon’s comedy mixes real life stories with “off the wall” physical comedy and his own hilarious view of life. He helps us see the funny things all around us and find joy no matter what we are going through.

Besides his vast comedy background, Gordon was named Who’s Who in America’s Universities when he graduated from Philadelphia Biblical University in 1995. For the last 20 years Gordon has served as the head of the pastoral board of the Delaware County Pregnancy Center and regional coordinator of the National Day of Prayer. In his spare time he is still the President of Therapeutic Construction and Design- making custom equipment for folks with disabilities. In honor of his hero Bob Hope, Gordon started Operation Bellylaughs, sending comedy DVDs to the troops.

Gordon Douglas has been married to his wife Dawn for over 35 years. They have five natural children and have opened their hearts and home to a whole lot more.

Help Us Build a New Playground

Playground Proposal

In the summer we are reminded about the importance of outdoor play.  During the school year, Williston Trinity Christian School provides elementary students with 3 recesses each day.  This allows our students to take a break from their academic studies to focus on play which incorporates social, emotional, physical & cognitive development.  We realize our playground is not the best it could be for our students. 

The WTCS playground committee has reached out to Grondahl Recreation Inc. to provide us with a new playground proposal.  This proposal came in at $42,000.  As of 6/25/18, we have $25,200 set aside specifically to improve our playground.  The gap between what we have and what we need is $16,800.  Please prayerfully consider donating to enhance our playground for our children. 

If you or your business are interested in partnering in donating to this project, or if you have any questions, please feel free to call WTCS Principal Mr. Cory Fleck at (701) 770 – 5131, or email cfleck@wtcsnd.org. 

Thank you for your support in this project!
