It is important for us to recognize that like "The Navicella," we as followers of Christ are united in a masterful mosaic depicting Christ Himself. The "body of Christ" is revealed to the lost by each of us, not singularly but collectively, who have answered the call of Christ himself when He has exclaimed "Come." (Matthew 14:28) Each of us in unity, though diverse, represent something much larger and more wonderful than any one of us alone. Similarly, StoneBridge is not just a school singularly striving to survive in the market pool of educational options in Hampton Roads. Rather, it is a community united around a mission to raise up the next generation in the way they should go, so they will not depart from it.
StoneBridge is made up of an aggregation of individual, like-minded families committed to Christ to strengthen the community's efforts and effectiveness in the mission to enable each child to reach the fullest expression of their value in Christ. With this in mind, I would like to invite you to participate in 14 days of fasting and prayer. This invitation is extended to our faculty and staff as well as the entire student body.
It has been my prayer that this year all of us – students, parents, faculty, and staff – will grow closer to Christ. I know that when each of us unite with Him, our families, students, school, and even the nation will be transformed. It is in Christ that we become the light of the world. Please consider uniting with the SBS staff January 9-23, as we fast and pray for our students, families, our school, and nation. Below you will find a prayer schedule.
