Head of School '18-'19 Highlights May 2019 LaVonne McIlrath, LCA Head of School

"... do all to the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31b

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.

"...my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus as given me - the task of testifying to the good news of God's grace." Acts 20:24
Spiritual Emphasis - Our Middle School and High School students started the year with an emphasis on things that really matter - relationships with each other but most importantly the Lord.
Chapels/Bible classes - High School students heard God's Word boldly proclaimed by area pastors in weekly chapels, Middle School students grew in their M.A.D. (Making A Difference) small groups and Elementary students enjoyed their monthly chapels focusing on "How to be a Superhero - making life super for others." Students accepted Christ and made recommitments to Him as Lord and Savior.
Ministry Opportunities - We gave our students practical hands-on ways to serve in our community and around the world by participating in Operation Christmas Child, going on an international mission trip and serving local food pantries and charities.
All Pro Dad - We had a phenomenal response to our monthly All Pro Dad breakfast events providing quality time for dads and their kids and equipping dads with ways to be godly fathers in the home by applying scripture and biblical principles.
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.
The outdoor pavillion is built with money raised by our elementary students participating in the last two years of the Walkathon/Fun Run.

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

The mission of Liberty Christian Academy is to provide a quality Christian education in a Christ-centered environment in order to reach students for Christ and equip them to serve God and impact the world through biblical thought and action.
