Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.
  Cast me not away from your presence and take not your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit.

Psalm 51:10-12
January 13, 2019
Chaplain's Corner
PACS Families,

It was so great to start off 2019 with a three-day spiritual emphasis called Wolverine Awakening . On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of this past week, we walked through Psalm 51 together...which was a Psalm of repentance, rededication, and restoration written by King David on the heels of his greatest moral failure (found in II Samuel 11-12).

Below are some questions that you can begin discussing in your home, at your table, in your car, or wherever you are together that will continue the conversations that were started in our chapels on into your family environment.

  • On Wednesday, we said that nothing is wasted with God…not even your past sin and mistakes. How do you think God can and wants to use our past sin and mistakes for His glory?

  • On Thursday, we talked about the path that your life is taking right now has been created by the decisions you’ve made in the past, but God’s Word tells us that you don’t have to stay on that path…God has a better path for your life. How can a person choose God’s path?

  • On Friday, we ended the Wolverine Awakening by discussing what God wants from us…“a broken spirit; and a broken and contrite heart.” Why should we ever ask God to break us?

I am really looking forward to seeing and hearing about all the ways that God continues to speak to, guide, and use our students in the days, weeks, and months ahead. Thank you all so much for allowing us to play a part in all that God is doing in the lives of your students and in your family!

New Incidental Invoice Schedule:
Beginning in January 2019, PACS is changing our FACTS incidental invoice schedule to simplify communication to families, lengthen the time between invoice and payment due date, and to take advantage of the recent FACTS software enhancements.  

Families will now receive one invoice per month on the 5 th  day of each month.  Payment will be due on the 1 st  day of the following month (23 – 26 days later), unless this is a holiday or weekend in which payment is due the next business day. The January FACTS incidental invoice was emailed yesterday, on January 5 th , and payment is due on Friday, February 1 st .
Since you’ll be receiving incidental invoices less frequently, please visit our new mobile site at  from your phone’s web browser to keep up with FACTS on the go.
