Positive Referral Donations needed:

Each week in grades 6-12, we recognize a student for his or her positive contributions to the TCS atmosphere. Teachers can “write up” students for their positive actions and service to TCS, and each week they are entered into a drawing. Would you be willing to donate $10 Gift Cards for these positive referral winners? Last year we were able to reward 20+ students for their positive attitudes and contributions to their peers and teachers. If you would like to help, please notify Mr. McPheron (mcpheronbj@tcspioneers.org) or drop off your donation of Gift Cards or Cash to the HS office (labeled “Positive Referral”). Examples of Gift Cards (Taco Bell, Gas Stations, Menchies, Movie Theatre, Fast Food, etc.)

Revive Ohio:

The Lima Baptist Temple has been hosting an event known as Revive Ohio this week. Over fifty churches have come together to take the Gospel to Allen County. It has been a great week! Thanks for being patient with the extra cars and traffic in the parking lot. Continue to pray that Revive Ohio will draw many people in Allen County to Christ.
