A True “Mission” School
Triangle Adventist Christian School (TACS) is redefining its vision and re-affirming its purpose to “…teach all nations….” Nestled in the heart of Groves, a quaint southeast Texas town, TACS has a diverse denominational and ethnic student population. One might say that TACS serves a unique purpose, as a true “mission” school.
From our youngest students in the three- and four-year-old program to our eighth graders, we serve 25 precious souls, of whom only two are Adventists. We are excited when parents join us on Sabbath for musical performances or attend our annual church Fall Festival. It is a great opportunity to get to know each other. Our pre-K program has especially piqued interest in the community as we currently have 12 children on a waiting list!
Each day as the teachers share stories and songs about Jesus, the children are learning who God is, some for the very first time. Parents have commented on the change they see in their children at home. They are sharing what they are learning at school each day with mom, dad, and other family members.
Fulfilling our school theme, “Let Your Light Shine,” our December Community Service Day allowed our students to brighten the day for others through cleaning, baking and visitation.
I think we are here in Groves “…for such a time as this….” While we await the soon return of our Lord and Savior, we are working to share our light in our community and beyond.
