What is the Solid Rock Center?

 “Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means ‘rock’), and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.” Matthew 16:18 (NLT)

The future looks bright here at Harbor Light Christian School. We are doubling down on our 35-year track record of success in the Christian school arena with the announcement of the Solid Rock Center, a legacy gymnasium and arts expansion.

We are introducing a much needed expansion that will build upon our rich tradition while providing new opportunities in education, arts, and athletics.  The Solid Rock Center project aims to cement Harbor Light Christian School’s place as the stable, growing, Christ-driven, educational alternative in the Northern Michigan area.

The 1.5 million dollar project will house a new gymnasium, complete with a “Legacy Floor” honoring the school’s past, art and music creativity with exploration areas, a fully functional science laboratory, and additional classrooms to fill the needs of the growing student body.

It is the vision of the Harbor Light Christian School leadership, to see this new addition not only fill the needs of the student body, but also become an event venue, a useful resource, and a place of meeting and fellowship for the community.

IMG 4871On 3/17/2021 the Pistons Floor was loaded up and transported to Northern Michigan. This floor and hoops from the Pontiac Silverdome were donated to Harbor Light Christian School and will be used for our Solid Rock Center.

The floor is made up from No. 1 grade maple, and there are 224 eight-inch interlocking sections. The best basketball players of all time played on this floor, including Jordan “Magic” Johnson, Larry Bird, Isaiah Thomas, and Joe Dumars.

This court of legendary status will be our Legacy court where hundreds of supporters can have their family and business names permanently attached, so generations to come will be able to see the commitment of a community.
