Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 5:10
November 11, 2018
Chaplain's Corner
PACS Families,

As we are nearing the end of our study through the Beatitudes, this week in Chapel we walked through Matthew 5:1-2,10-12 together. Jesus clearly stated that persecution (social, relational, and even possibly physical) is not an if proposition, but rather a when certainty. With this subject, we see an uncomfortable consistency all throughout Scripture: If you follow Jesus, you will not fit in with an unbelieving world and culture. So, the daily question in front of us all is Do I want Jesus, or do I want to fit in ?”

[READ Matthew 5:1-2,10-12]

In your homes, around your tables, and in your traveling, consider the following questions to continue the conversations in your family that have begun in our Chapels…

  • As a follower of Jesus Christ, how does our life bring conviction? How does our light offend darkness?

  • When facing persecution, why is it important to stay close to God? Stay connected with other believers? Stay constant on your mission?

  • In Chapel, the question was asked: “Is persecution worth it?, and the answer was that it all depends on your perspective. If this world is all there is, then, “no” the persecution is clearly not worth it. But, if we were created for eternity and Heaven is our real home, then, “yes” the momentary persecution is most certainly worth it. Why is this true? How does this truth give comfort to us while enduring persecution?

Please let us know if there are any additional ways that we may be able to serve you and serve alongside you!

Holiday Hoodies to benefit Kids First
November 13 - December 7

Kids First is the outreach ministry founded by Larry and Anna Boling in 2003 to minister to the under-privileged children in and around Athens. PACS families can choose to participate in providing hoodies to needy children in the following ways:
  • Information for each participating Kids First child will be written on Christmas ornaments displayed on a lighted Christmas tree in the main hallway of PACS.

  • During the dates of the project, Prince parents may stop by the school and select one or more ornaments from the tree.

  • Once a family selects the ornament, they need to stop by the lower school office to see Jennifer Palmer for further instructions.

This past week, PACS integrated our two major software systems (FACTS and RenWeb ParentsWeb) to better serve our school community.

While this change will have many positive effects school-wide, there are a few items that will impact our families in the near future:


  • Use your current ParentsWeb username and password to log-in to this site. From the menu bar at http://www.factsmgt.com, select the “Parent Log in” drop-down and the “FACTS Family Online (ParentsWeb)” option. Your FACTS username and password will no longer be needed.

  • Once you’ve logged in successfully, you will see a new link in the Family Information section that will open your FACTS account.

  • There are no changes to the RenWeb Home app, so you may continue to use this application if desired.
