Join us each morning when dropping off your child(ren) for school. Take an extra few minutes to park and start your day with some great fellowship as well as a great cup of Java Dave’s coffee. We have been enjoying these mornings with our teachers and parents and we would love to see you there. The coffee bar is open in the lobby between 7:30 - 8:00 a.m. each morning.

Chick-fil-A Friday: One of our favorite lunch vendors, Chick-fil-A, will be providing chicken biscuits for our Friday morning coffee fellowship this Friday! If you have not yet joined us for our Java Dave’s coffee fellowship, feel free to stop by between 7:30 and 8:00 this Friday morning for a great “cup of joe” as well as a tasty chicken biscuit. Supplies will be limited, so as they say, the early bird…

No class changes will be permitted after this Friday.  Some of our classes have been filled and no longer have room in them, and some classes have had to be cancelled do to students changing out of them.  Parents should send a note or an email if a change is requested and Mr. Post must approve the schedule change.




Next week, August 24 & 25, our 6th - 12th grade students will be heading to New Life Ranch for our annual Charger Round Table. The cost is $125 per student and we encourage every secondary student to attend.  These two days at the ranch usually set the tone for the rest of the school year as students eat, play, and pray together.  Students leave on Thursday morning at 8:15 and will return on Friday afternoon at about 3:15.  You will find the permission slip with additional information attached below.

We still have a few projects that have not been fully funded.  We have developed a page on our website that is dedicated to our current projects.
