Looking back and scrolling ahead
Going to a theater is more than just watching the feature film. It is the whole experience - the popcorn, the candy, the previews in anticipation of what's to come. For the May News I'd like to look back over the past year at LCA and scroll ahead for a sneak peak at the good things to come. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the "show".
The '18-'19 school year:
- It was a year of growth. Our record enrollment of 426 at the end of this year reflects God's faithfulness to bless His Work.
- It was a year of striving for excellence. Our theme verse from I Corinthians 10:31 reflected our desire and effort to bring God the glory in all things.
- It was a year emphasizing kindness. Through demonstrating Random Acts of Kindness, recognizing Kindness Champions and other efforts to promote kindness, we were recognized by the The Great Kindness Challenge as a "Kindness Certified School".
I wish we could say we did everything with perfection, but I can't. I can, however, say with every confidence that we stayed true to our mission of reaching the hearts and minds of young people for Christ and doing our best as unto the Lord.
Enrollment - We anticipate another year of record enrollment for the fall. Projections are that we will have well over 460 students! We give all the glory to God!
Expansion - We have begun making plans for expansion. Three years after adding our Plex we are already out of room. Plans have begun for immediate, as well as 2-5 year expansion plans. Stay tuned!
Pavillion Progress - Students will be able to have outdoor education classes and a perfect picnic spot in this 30'x45' open air pavillion.
National Day of Prayer 2019
This year's Pataskala Day of Prayer will be held at LCA - for the 3rd year in a row. Join us Thursday, May 2, at 7:00 PM with other prayer warriors from our community as we gather for a meaningful time of prayer, worship and encouragement. Prayer builds unity in love for one another.
The 2019 theme is LOVE ONE ANOTHER based on John 13:34, "Love one another, just as I have loved you."
Our prayer for you as we end another school year:
"For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen." Ephesians 3:14-21
