Sussex Christian plans challenge of the talents

Make text smaller Make text larger


Sussex Christian School is challenging school families and supporters to use their talents in “The Challenge of the Talents!”.

The Parable of Talents in Matthew 25:14-30 tells the story of a master who entrusted his servants with his money while he was away on a trip. When he returned, he assessed how well they took care of this money. Traditionally the parable has been viewed as an encouragement to serve the Lord using your God-given talents. Using this concept, SCS entrusted their young entrepreneurs and supporters with a crisp $100 bill to participate, to serve the Lord, to strengthen the community, and to raise money for SCS. They trust that working together and using their God-given talents, the community will see the development of the future servants and leaders of our society as SCS. Will support their hard work?
