Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Going to be a Christ Methodist Boy

Austin has been accepted at Christ Methodist Day School and will start Pre-K there in the fall.  We are really excited about him being a student there and feel 100% sure that this is where the Lord has him.  It is a precious school that I feel confident is a good fit for Austin and our family.  I am really looking forward to seeing him grow and flourish at this precious school.

A little about Christ Methodist:


Christ Methodist Day School was established on the belief that each individual is a child of God, a unique expression of His will.  We, the staff, faculty, and parents, are committed to the task of helping each child develop his/her full potential academically, physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.  It is our goal to help each child learn from the concept that God planned and created this world and all that is in it.  Such a Christ-centered environment should equip the child to meet the challenges of later years from a Christian perspective.  Christ Methodist Day School believes that learning is enhanced when the home, school, community, and church work together.
Mission Statement
Christ Methodist Day School is dedicated to quality Christian elementary education for boys and girls.  We promote spiritual development, academic excellence, social responsibility, and personal integrity.
Our vision is for all students at CMDS to develop into:
  • Students who embrace the love of God as demonstrated by the life and sacrifice of His son, Jesus Christ, and who strive to grow in spiritual maturity as they follow Him.
  • Students who take responsibility for excellence in their own learning by pursuing academic challenges, and who learn to think critically and creatively under the guidance of nurturing and qualified teachers.
  • Students who value and respect diversity, and who treat others with the love of Christ.
  • Students who conduct themselves with honesty and integrity.
  • Each student is a unique creation of God with spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, and social needs.
  • Children's talents and abilities are acknowledged and reinforced allowing each student to develop spiritually and scholastically.
  • Each student is encouraged to develop a sense of Christian values toward family, school, society, and self.
  • Developmentally appropriate teaching methods and challenging expectations allow students to reach their potential as independent learners.
  • Students are provided learning opportunities in a safe and stimulating environment.
  • Learning is enhanced in a Christian atmosphere where there is a cooperative effort among church, teachers, parents, and community.
  • We believe in a learning environment which respects ethnic, cultural, and religious diversity.

We loved being members of Christ Methodist while we were in Memphis. I've heard so many great things about the school. So glad you found the perfect place for Austin. I can't believe it's almost time for him to start school!
