The early spring temperatures have certainly made for some remarkably beautiful days to enjoy creation this winter. As we move through seasons throughout our year in Michigan, I’m always reminded that God is faithful through all of the fickle in our world. Temperatures fluctuate up and down and winds whip all about, yet our God is faithful and good. Generation after generation. As we begin to see the sap flowing in our maples and anticipate the arrival of buds, tangible experiences abound for our children to live into the words they have committed to memory: “For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.” Psalm 100:5.










Yours in Christ’s service,



Swim Lessons

Holland Christian elementary students have the privilege of receiving swimming lessons each year through Holland Aquatic Center. These lessons are provided  during the school day for 2 weeks. First and second grade lessons will take place from April 8-19. We recognize this program can be a little uncomfortable for children because it could be new and unfamiliar. However, because our children are blessed to be raised in Michigan, surrounded by bodies of water, we believe this safety instruction is a blessing that we pray they will never need but feel responsible to equip them. If you find yourself pondering over the “why” of lessons, please listen to HC mom Jenny White on the why swim safetyHCAC Swim School welcome video could help you understand a bit about the logistics. Any questions please feel free to contact the office.
