A Prayer Request from the Christian School Communities: In the coming weeks, the membership societies of the Christian schools in the Quinte region will be asked to make a very important decision. The Quinte Region Task Force has been actively working since Feb. 2021 to “fully explore a new collaborative single vision for the long-term future of Christian education in the Quinte region”. The final report has been sent to the school memberships for consideration of an amalgamation concept. It’s a big step – some have said it would be the biggest decision of the local Christian school communities in a very long time. Will you commit to keeping the Trenton Christian School, Belleville Christian School, Sonrise Christian Academy and Quinte Christian High School boards, school memberships and the task force in prayer as we collectively seek to do the Lord’s will? A detailed history of this endeavor and the final report are available on the website . Thank you for your support.
