I’m sure fired up and looking forward to tomorrow at First Colony. I get to teach about the Crazy Love of God in week #3 of our Crazy Love series.
This Sunday is also CCA Day (Cornerstone Christian Academy), which is an absolutely terrific ministry of our church family. Several CCA students will help our worship teams, read scripture and Dylan Weaver will even help me kick off our message.
I’d like to take a moment and bring all of you up to speed on the work of CCA. Cornerstone Christian Academy started in 2003 (thanks to the pioneering work of Dana Wright) and currently serves children from age two through the eighth grade. In addition, Cornerstone offers extended care from 7:00am to 6:00pm and offers various enrichment classes for all age groups after school. The total number of students at CCA is 430.
CCA’s mission is to equip students with skills for life and faith for eternity. Casey Farris is the Head of School and does a terrific job. His predecessor, Chad St. Jean, also did a terrific job and the school is in such a good place in every way. Mark Mize is the CCA Board Chair. Enrollment for the 2015-16 school year is currently underway.
Cornerstone recently went through accreditation through AdvancEd, which is the largest community of educational professionals around the world that accredits more than 32,000 schools globally. The global average ranking is a 282 and Cornerstone received a 318, which places CCA in the top 0.5 percentile globally.
Here is a quote from AdvancEd: “Cornerstone Christian Academy received the highest rating in the supportive learning environment. The school has well documented values; and the External Review Team saw respect, responsibility, integrity, teamwork, and a quest for excellence throughout the school visit.”
I’m grateful for the work of CCA, their talented faculty and staff, and the partnership we enjoy. Martha and I are also glad to be CCA grandparents.
Have a great weekend. Hope to see you tomorrow for an encouraging day of worship and fellowship.
