One way that Tidings of Peace is helping me to become a servant is the way the teachers help the students to become friends. They are teaching me how to understand the other kids better. When I understand them, I then know what they need. I really like this school and the other students and teachers here.

Tidings of Peace Mennonite Church held its first service on Sunday morning, October 24, 1954. Throughout its 60 plus years of ministry to the city of YORK, the members have tried hard to be sensitive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit in finding new and exciting ways to reach as many persons as possible with the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
With the encouragement of Brother Jay Fox of Reading, the congregation voted in the summer of 1994 to start a Christian Day School to answer the call of several in the community that were asking us to give an alternative to the public school system.
In 1994 the current school building at 329 E Poplar Street was offered to the church.
The congregation accepted the offer, and diligent plans began for opening day, Sept 4, 1995.
Opening day arrived with 5 students enrolled—along with 2 full-time and 1 part-time teachers.
Over these years, the student body has grown in numbers, and more than 50 missionaries have volunteered their time to teach and train these students. Some have served for a few months, others for longer than 10 years.
