It all started when, as a wrap up to their ecosystem unit, they began to explore the local ecosystem more closely.  They...

The TC Christian Student Council exemplifies the school theme: Be the Difference (Eph 2:10).  Earlier this year, the students determined that they wanted to do something to bless those men and women in our community who make a difference.

Oswald Chambers, the noted Christian author and evangelist once said that prayer does not prepare us for the greater work…it is the greater work.  At TC Christian, prayer is a fundamental.  Period.

Touch-A-Truck A Smash (Figuratively Speaking)

TC Christian’s first-ever ‘Touch-a-Truck’ is in the books and by all accounts, it was an excellent event.  Thanks to a beautiful sunny morning and a variety of interesting vehicles, the TC Christian campus was flowing with people soon after opening.  Exhibits included vehicles from First Responders, Construction, Farm and Forestry, and the friendly folks from...

Teacher Appreciation Week

It’s no secret that we love our teachers at Traverse City Christian.  They connect with their students and student families on so many levels – school, church, neighborhood, sport, even Costco – that they’re seen more often as friends rather than simply instructors of children. With that in mind, PTO really got behind this year’s...
