History

Luke 6:48

He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock

Our school was started in 1982 when Mrs. Florence Gause (also known as “Flo”) started a preschool in her home. Prior to this time, she was involved in teaching Sunday School and directing Vacation Bible School at Fruitvale Community Church, which is now Riverlakes Community Church. These experiences drew her to teaching.

In 1970, Mrs. Gause began teaching at Carden School where she taught for ten years. During her time there, she had a growing desire to have her own school. In 1982, she started a small preschool in her home for 6 four-year-old children. The following year, she substitute taught at Carden; and in 1983, with the help of her daughter, Patty, and daughter-in-law, LeaAnn, The Little Country Christian School was born. The first school had 18 children and by the end of that year, there were 29 students at LCCS.

Flo and her husband, Bob, started plans to build a school on the Gause property when they discovered the property on Dean Avenue was for sale. It seemed to be God’s perfect place to have a loving “country school” to plant seeds of faith, hope and knowledge of Jesus Christ; and we’ve been here ever since!

In 1994, Mrs. Gause incorporated the elementary school to a non-profit organization under the name of Country Christian School, with hopes of expanding the school to include sixth grade. With diligent prayers and hard work her vision came true. It was only appropriate that the Lord would end the 20th Century by starting the 1999 school year of Country Christian School with its first sixth grade class of nine students. We were so proud and counted it a blessing as we blasted off the 21st Century with this first graduating sixth grade class in June of 2000.

God is good and we give Him the praise and the glory for the things He has done for His school here at Country Christian School.
