The Bear Creek School

Dear Bear Creek Community,


Happy New Year!


This January Bear Creek continues its partnership with Strong Against Cancer (one of Bear Creek's three community partners) to create awareness and raise funds to support the groundbreaking research at the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research at Seattle Children's. Our Upper School students lead the charge on this project and will sell purple merchandise through the BC Gear Shop before and after school during the week of January 29 – February 2 with all the proceeds going toward Strong Against Cancer. We hope you will consider supporting the cause by purchasing purple merchandise (capes and masks $10 each, T-shirts $15 each), making a donation, and wearing purple all day on February 2.


I will speak on Inseparable Love at Lower School, Early Middle School, and Middle School Chapels on Tuesday, January 23 to promote this important Compassion in Action project among all divisions. We will consider how God's love never fails and gives us courage to face all circumstances and love others as He loves us. On Monday, January 29, the Upper School will have a special assembly with a guest researcher from The Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research. As always, you are invited to join us at Chapel and Assembly. See the school calendar for the weekly Chapel and Assembly meeting times and locations.

On Friday, February 2, the Bear Creek Grizzlies will host University Prep for an exciting evening of basketball and the culmination of our Strong Against Cancer campaign and Adopt-a-Grizzly program. Put on your purple gear in support of our cause and cheer on your Grizzlies!


Another great connection opportunity that week is our All-School Fellowship Breakfast on Wednesday, January 31; it will be a great opportunity to enjoy fellowship and celebrate how God is working among us! Plan to attend with your whole family in the Main Commons from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. We'll have Strong Against Cancer purple gear on sale then too!

Look for me at the many events planned. As always, I'll be wearing my purple cape!


With joy in the journey,


Rev. Dr. Jeff Gephart
