NBCS Memo - September 1



Everlasting Arms

“The eternal God is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms…” Deut. 33:27a (ESV) 

If you are a parent, you have most likely experienced sitting in church with a sleeping child in your lap. At first it is enjoyable to sit with the child snuggled closely against you. There is no work calling you to set the child down and get busy. Instead, you are free to relax with the child in your arms. Then, after a short while, the muscle aches begin. You try shifting the child’s weight or changing your own position. There is no escaping it; eventually, your arms will tire. Knowing our own weaknesses and how quickly we become tired as parents, makes it hard to for us to comprehend the everlasting nature of God’s care for us.  

Dwell on the fact that His arms are everlasting. Our Father never gets tired of holding us. We can fully lean on him through every need and trial, and it never causes him weariness. “He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep” (Ps 121:4). He is able to keep keeping, no respite required. 

The next time you are weary of the whining, worn out from the daily battles, or exhausted after an all-night vigil with a sick child, ponder the everlasting arms that hold you and rest in the unwearied One who holds you securely. 

“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary…” Isaiah 40:28 

There will be no school this next Monday, September 4th, in honor of Labor Day! We hope everyone enjoys their 3-day weekend!
Next Friday is our Class Color Day! Each class is choosing a color to wear for the day. We are excited to see which class shows the most colorful class-spirit!
Our first Moms in Prayer gathering of the school year will be on Tuesday, September 12th, at 8:30 a.m. All NBCS Moms are welcome to join for this relaxed time of prayer and fellowship directly following student drop-off! If you have young children, please bring them as well! They will play while the moms share and pray together. 
This past Tuesday each student brought home a slip of paper from GS Memorymaker. This contains the access code for their school pictures! Please use this code to log-in, view their pictures, and place your order (if desired). The coupon code listed on your slip of paper expires on September 12th! 
Our All-School Picnic at the Park is only a couple weeks away! We are excited for this evening filled with food and fellowship. Not only is the whole family welcome, but grandparents are invited as well!

Here are a few things you may bring that evening:
  • Main dish and side! We ask each family to bring a main dish and side dish to share. We will enjoy a potluck-style picnic together! This does not need to be fancy. For your main dish, you may pick up fried chicken or a pizza! The school will provide dessert for all. 
  • Serving utensils! If your side dish or dessert requires a serving utensil, please bring that with your dish and make sure to take it home afterwards.
  • Lawn chairs and yard games! Please bring lawn chairs or a picnic blanket for the evening. If you would like to bring yard games, feel free! 
King Park is located is located at 200 N Ridge Road in Hesston. If you have any questions regarding the event, please email or call the school office!
