BUILDING A STRONG FUTURE FOR ACA

We want to express a very heartfelt “Thank You” to those of you who have already acted on this call to action. As most of you know, an amazing opportunity has been presented to ACA by a Tulsa-based Foundation. We have been issued a $650,000 Matching Challenge to help erase all of the debt currently held by Augustine Christian Academy. The Board of Governors and Administration encourage you to visit our website at: https://www.acatulsa.org/contact/invest-aca/aca-debt-relief-matching-challenge  to learn more. Click on the PDF on the website to download the information. Please give prayerful consideration as to how you may participate. In the very near future, we will begin sharing financial figures as the account is already beginning to grow strong! Feel free to address any questions to John Ahrens at [email protected]

EAST COAST TRIP FUNDRAISER

The East Coast travelers are starting a fundraiser with “Fun Pasta”. We are excited to sell Fun Pasta because there is a large selection of items, great price points, and fun products for everyone. These can be great Christmas gifts too! The link below will take you to our page. When you go to check out you may choose to support just one student or the entire group.

We thank you for your supporting our students’ field study opportunity. This field study will take our students to Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Washington D. C. and Williamsburg/Jamestown. They will have the chance to see history come to life and hopefully gain a deeper appreciation for this amazing country we live in. We would also welcome donations toward the costs of the trip!  Any gift large or small will go a long way.  Thank you for considering a purchase of Fun Pasta!
