Music has a special way of grabbing hold of our hearts and not letting go, doesn’t it? Some of the songs our children sang at our spring program may have been new to you. They were to me too. I want to share the lyrics of one of the beautiful songs they sang so robustly. This song, committed to memory by our children, is but one of the “whys” of Christian education, friends. In their formative years, our children hold the truths of God as well as the call placed on our lives as Christ’s agents for peace in this world close to their hearts for years to come. I hope you hear your child humming or singing these truths put to music for many years to come:

Living Waters

by Kristyn Getty and Ed Cash

Are you thirsty? Are you empty? Come and drink these living waters. 

Tired and broken, peace unspoken, Rest beside these living waters. 

Christ is calling, find refreshing, At the cross of living waters.

Lay your life down, all the old gone, Rise up in these living waters. 

Spirit moving, mercy washing, Healing in these living waters. 

Lead your children to the shoreline, Life is in these living waters.

Are you thirsty? Are you empty? Come and drink these living waters. 

Love, forgiveness, vast and boundless, Christ, He is our living water. 


There’s a river that flows with mercy and love, Bringing joy to the city of our God;

There our hope is secure, do not fear anymore, Praise the Lord of living waters. 

Amen and amen. May it ever be so.

Yours in Christ’s service,




Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your donations to the Kid’s Food Basket! We are blessed to be a blessing to those in our community!

Skating Party

Mark your calendar! Join us at Home Roller rink on April 25 from 6:30-8pm!

Tulip Time Preparations

If you are choosing to be in the “Dutch Heritage” section, remember that you’ll need to wear a Dutch costume. The Tulip Time office is holding a Dutch Costume Resale on Wednesday, April 12 from 5-8pm at the Holland Civic Center You can find more information on this Tulip Time Costume Sale Flyer. If you chose the “Tulip” section for the parade, you will want to make sure that you have your Holland Christian Streams of Living Water t-shirt ready to go.

Enrollment for 23-24

Please help us spread the word that we still have a few seats open in our Young Fives and preschool classes! Parents can enroll on our Apply page. However, for all parents with children in kindergarten or above, it’s nice to be reminded that Holland Christian is a continuous enrollment school. This means, in an effort to simplify the process for our current K-12 families, you will not need to re-apply every year (this is, after kindergarten). We are happy that you are a part of the Holland Christian family, and our hope and plan is that you want to continue partnering with us in the years to come!

Rose Park Lost and Found

Please take a minute to look our Lost and Found photo Album to see if any of these items belong to your student. Feel free to email Carla  or Laura to claim your items and we will make sure to get it in your student’s backpack. These items will be donated soon. Also, please make sure to bring your child’s snow stuff to school every day or leave an extra set at school. In Michigan, the weather can change quickly and we want to make sure your child is warm and comfortable in their outdoor play! Our office has a limited supply of items. If your child borrows an item, we will send it home to be washed and returned for other students to use. We are always looking for extra gloves to add to our supply!
