High School Fund Raisers For Senior Class Trip

Push To A Great year     School is going strong. Let us join together to be strong and successful. Keep Christ Central.

P   We have a Purpose and a Plan for our school.

U   Use your time wisely.

S  Serve the students, parents, our community, our world and one another in Christ.

H   See God's Heart. Help them stay strong!


To Contact the school office

Call 813-689-6133 or E-mail



Scrip Available

The school has a great fund raising plan and it doesn't cost you anything but a few minutes of your time and some planning. Across the country schools raise money through a program called "Scrip".  In fact some schools do so well with their scrip program that they don't do any other fund raisers! Merchants and businesses want to encourage education so they participate in scrip. They  donate back a portion of their profit's when a gift card to their business is used. Gift cards are available for  just about anything you normally purchase. The gift cards come in varied values and for a great many different businesses. You can see a partial list if you click on the link below. Your participation would be greatly appreciated. Scrip is available at the school and at our church events like our monthly lunches.

Southern Baptist History

Great Women Of Our Faith

Lottie Moon

Lottie Moon was a Baptist missionary to China in the 1800's. She gave her life for the Chinese people she was ministering to giving up her own food to the less fortunate. Annie Armstrong  was a friend  and collected money to help support Lottie Moon and others mission efforts. That is where the Lottie Moon Christmas offering for foreign missions came from that we participate in even to this  day.

Annie Armstrong

Around Easter Southern Baptists collect a special offering for  North American Missions. This is the Annie Armstrong offering. Annie Walker Armstrong (1850-1938) was a Southern Baptist believer who was very active in the Women's Missionary Union of the Southern Baptist Church and helped to organize that organization as an auxiliary of the Southern Baptist Convention. She was instrumental in organizing donations for the first Lottie Moon Christmas offering for Foreign Missions. She also promoted organizations for encouraging African American Baptist Women. Annie Armstrong is another example of how women of the Southern Baptist Church have been the backbone of our denomination, as they are to this day, as they labor to share the Gospel at home and around the world.

 For more info about Annie  and the Annie Armstrong Offering go to :

Seven Daily Exercises For A Disciple Maker Notes

Youth's In Service

Hire a youth!  Are you tired and worn out from the hustle and bustle( what's a bustle?) of the work week? Do you just need a lazy Saturday with nothing to do but tell young people what to do and actually have them do it? Then hire a teenager! They'll get'er done! Baby sitting, yard work, tree trimming, leaf harvesting, cotton picking, car/dish/dog washing teens! You name it they'll do it provided it's legal and mostly safe. All money raised helps send them to Word of Life Youth Camp. If they collect enough they will bring them back to. See Pastor West.


Invite Cards

Missions and Church Partners

Pray for Christians all over the world where Christianity is under attack. Churches are being burned and Christians are being murdered and persecuted in the name of Islam, Hinduism and atheism. Persecution in India, Egypt, Iraq, Indonesia, Syria and various countries in Africa.

Pray for his family and other Christians in Iran which has declared war on Christianity.
