West Michigan Christian Schools Golf Outing 2017: Fun & Fellowship on the Green

WMCS Golf Outing 2017

Fun & Fellowship on the Green

Whether you are a scratch golfer who takes the game seriously or a golfer who simply enjoys the sport, the WMCS Annual Golf Outing was the place to be on September 9th. Regardless of handicaps or scores, attendees had a great time and enjoyed the fellowship of playing golf with teachers, principals, families, and alumni of our five West Michigan Christian Schools.

This year the fundraiser was held at the Arthur Hill Thoroughbred Golf Course at the Double JJ Resort in Rothbury.  Known for its stunning and dramatic landscape of rolling Michigan woods, wetlands, and lakes, the course proved to be fair and playable for golfers of all abilities. All five schools were represented with a total of twenty-five foursomes. 

The first place foursome went to Scott Alfree, Henry Vos Jr., Butch Hubers and Darren Briet (pictured above as header.)

Every dollar raised at this event helps offset costs for our Christ-centered schools, allowing each school to be better stewards of their resources. This year, more than $22,000 was raised!

The event was supported and sponsored by those who were led by the Lord to donate. We received a variety of prizes and financial contributions to assist in making this event a success.

A special “Thank You” to our top event sponsors:  Mall City Containers, JOST, Betten Baker Chevrolet and Calvin College.

West Michigan Christian Schools (WMCS) are back in action!

Our five member schools kicked off the year with a collective total of 1,129 students enrolled. During the first weeks, some WMCS students served in the community, lasting memories were made at middle schooler camp, and all PK-12 students made a beautiful noise unto the Lord at each school chapel. Our WMCS faculty are hard at work training up the students in the classroom and on the field, all while creating faith and character growth opportunities that extend “beyond academics.” It’s going to be a fantastic year!
