A Good Year At Blodgett View Christian School

Blodgett View Christian School (BVCS), in Hamilton, Mont., joined the communities in the Bitterroot Valley for a parade to celebrate the discovery expedition of Lewis and Clark. We used this opportunity to tell the community about another discovery by titling our parade float “Discover Jesus.”

In the fall, our spiritual high point came with the baptism of two brothers and sisters: Zachary and Missy Titeca and Michael and Megan Moore. Throughout the school year our students have helped with church activities, including special music and conducting the Spring Week of Prayer.

Our five eighth-grade students presented the Spring Week of Prayer with the help of our pastor Barry Curtis. Personal experiences with spiritual applications presented by classmates, followed by the pastor’s deeper insights, made the Week of Prayer special. A balanced Christian life experience for each student was our goal for this school year.

We also took time to enjoy the nearby snow and mountains. It is amazing to watch third-graders learn to snowboard after having mastered skiing. The “air” our eighth-grade snowboarders get off jumps gives them the feeling of flying. We also enjoyed Red Cross swimming lessons this year. We believe that enjoying recreational activities is part of God’s plan for His children and that our school should help in the safe pursuit of this plan.
