Western Michigan Christian Presents GODSPELL

WMC Musical at Orchard View Auditorium March 2 and 3

TICKETS ON SALE NOW FOR GODSPELL Friday, March 2 7pm Saturday, March 3 1&7pm Orchard View Auditorium $10. Available at WMC office and at event door.

Prepare ye for the timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and love. This spring the Musical Theatre Department will present the musical, GODSPELL. Based on the New Testament gospels, mostly St. Matthew, GODSPELL uses the parables and passion story of Jesus for an inventively theatrical show about the formation of a community. Inspired by an Easter service in 1970 that “was devoid of feeling” the author’s inspiration was to celebrate the risen Christ and make his teachings accessible to all.

Led by the international hit, “Day by Day,” GODSPELL features a parade of beloved songs, including “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All for the Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side.”

Western Michigan Christian Musical Theatre Under the Direction of Jason Bertoia Celebrates 10 Years

Ten years. I want to thank all of the students, parents, teachers, staff, and creative staff, from years past and present for making these last ten years possible. We began building our beautiful city 10 years ago and because you were involved we have grown to a celebration of our talents, strengths, and differences. Thank you for the Whos, tap dancing sailors, poodle skirts, carousel horses, whodunits, Apes, Pirates/Police and ladies, stuffed whales and our Sisters. Let’s see where the next 10 years take us…perhaps peaches, Vulgaria, and Baltimore…

Godspell and Western Michigan Christian’s Theme

Each year the school chooses a theme and this year’s theme, “Rise up to Idintity” is the basis for Godspell. It is the story of our faith in Christ and His teachings.

WELCOME Back To School at Western Michigan Middle and High School 2017-18!

BACK TO SCHOOL: Project Serve 2017

WMC STUDENTS BEGIN THE YEAR WITH PRAISE/WORSHIP and SERVING

WMC welcomed students this week Tuesday with sidewalk chalk greetings that included the word “Welcome” in 5 different languages, along with staff and student leader greetings. The 360 7-12 school then assembled for praise and worship followed by opening presentations given by Head of School Samuel Greer. Officer Scott VanWylen of the Mona Shores Police Department introduced the Ride with Pride program in which one student will win a car at the end of the school year.

The 71 Middle School students were dismissed to Treetop Adventure Park in Grand Rapids for team building while the 289 High School students went through school orientation sessions.

The High School students spent the afternoon serving the community at 17 different non-profit organizations along the lakeshore including the Tri-Cities YMCA, International Aid, Love in Action Grand Haven, LOVE In The Name of Christ Muskegon, Hope’s Outlet and Kids’ Food Basket. “This was a great way to start the year and included a great effort by all the students and staff on our Back to School Team,” said Assistant Principal Scott Liggett.

Head of School Samuel Greer shared, “It is important to set the tone for the year that includes spiritual development and having our school serve others.” Students and staff spent the afternoon cleaning, doing yard work, packing sack suppers along with other activities. Kathy Tabor, Director at Hope’s Outlet said, “The students worked very hard and moved a huge pile of clothes. We could not have done all of that in such a short period of time without them.”

Students had an abbreviated class schedule on Wednesday, along with small group activities and had a full day of classes Thursday.

Western Michigan Christian is a grade 7-12 high school and middle school located at 455 East Ellis Rd. Muskegon, including 360 students from 5 countries, 30 cities, and 75 churches. Our WMCS feeder schools include Fremont Christian School (PK-8), Grand Haven Christian School (PK-8), Muskegon Christian School (PK-6) and New Era Christian School (PK-8).
