 For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations. Isaiah 61:11

Staff Feature – Miss Rachel
Greetings from Miss Rachel, supervisor of 12 delightful little people in LC1 (1st grade) at FCS! I am in the middle of my 5th year in LC1, 6th year serving at FCS, and 12th year of teaching! I marvel at the ways of our awesome God who so faithfully and harmoniously orchestrates all of life to accomplish His purposes and our good, conforming us into the likeness of His Son. Even when we “mess up”, He so graciously redeems the situation and turns it into something good. Presently, I am thinking of how He brought me from far off Idaho to the land of PA, with its unique culture and mix of people (and grammar too!). I am honored to be on staff at FCS—to be a part of what He plans to do here in Reading and beyond… When this year began, I thought: “I’ve taught this curriculum for 4 years now—it feels like it will be a blessing to know what I am doing this year!” But God, in His all-knowing, “higher than our” ways, continues to be faithful in stretching me. I truly enjoy working with my little people and am grateful for the new challenges along the way that keep life interesting. These challenges also carry the ability and promise of conforming me into the blessed likeness of my Lord. Thank you for the privilege and honor of working with your children. May we together prepare them for what the Master has in store for them.

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.
For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” Romans 8:28-29

His Eye Is on the Sparrow

I saw a little sparrow on my tree branch
And how beautiful was one of God’s little creations.
I said, thank you Lord for allowing me to see,
He saw the little sparrow, and He watches over me.

Oh, I hear the sparrows singing
As they fly from tree to tree,
Their singing is so sweet to hear,
Our Heavenly Father sees them there.

Those little sparrows are so happy
God does care for each one,
He loves His creatures great and small,
He sees them each time they fall.

The little sparrows in the trees
Searching for food for their young,
Then they fly with loving wings,
Taking food to the young as they sing.

They just fly to the clouds so high
So worry free as they fly along,
As God protects the sparrow you see,
He surely watches over you and me.

When we think of little sparrows
Then we know our heavenly Father sees,
All our needs and wishes we ask for,
God will supply our every need.
Just like the little sparrows
From tree to tree gathering food,
So we thirst and hunger after God,
He is always there, for God is good!

During trials going through life
God will always guide our way,
He knows the heart and sees the hurt,
God will never let us go astray!

Each morning when I awake
I say thank you Lord, for this day,
Your blood alone atones for sin,
God’s loving arms enfold me in!
- Bernice Ward

As God protects the sparrow you see,
He surely watches over you and me!
