FROM THE HEADMASTER
Isaiah 9:6-7 (NKJV)

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
Greetings in His Service!

Not sure about you, but I have been caught up in the retail madness of Christmas in years' past. Reminders about the number of shopping days until Christmas are seemingly everywhere. Our children, spouses or others close to us drop "hints" on what they want for Christmas. It is especially hard to say no when your seven-year-old asks you for that special gift, with those sad, puppy dog eyes!

But when we put all this in perspective, the celebration of the birth of Christ is so much more than just a convenient backdrop for holiday festivities and traditions. The real meaning of Christmas is not about who has the best, most expensive gifts. It's about celebrating that Baby in a manger, and what His birth, life, death, and resurrection brought to pass. His birth set in motion God's plan for redemption for all of us. I am grateful for that!

As always, we thank you for your continued prayers and support. If I don't get to tell you in person, Merry Christmas to you and your family, and a happy New Year!

God bless,

Bryan Alvaré

Aboriginal Masterpiece Art Competition Results
Lower school art students, Grades 2-5 competed in an art contest for the best Aboriginal Masterpiece! The winner was a 3rd grader, Addison Darby. Second Place tie was Wyatt Linkous and Gunner Russell.
The Development Office is located in renovated space inside the gym. Frank and Glenn have been busy working on several projects to launch fundraising efforts for The Academy. The first outreaches will be focused on improving salaries for our teachers and also to provide additional scholarship opportunities for deserving students.

Presently, they are working on several projects including assisting with "A Not So Silent Night" event to be held on Sunday evening, December 13th on the campus of Living Waters Church.

7th Grade
Class Makes Personalized Christmas Ornaments
In November, FCA had a food drive to benefit local food pantry, Gracie’s Kitchen. As a reward for bringing in food items, the 7th graders had the opportunity to create and paint their own personalized Christmas ornaments, led by Mrs. Parker. They also got to enjoy some treats from Chick-Fil-a and Dunkin Donuts. The ornaments are currently displayed on the 7th-grade homeroom Christmas tree. They will get to take their ornaments home on the last day of school before Christmas break.

It is my prayer that during some future Christmas many years from now, they will look at what they made and remember that day, FCA, and the birth of the Savior with joy in their heart. They worked very hard during the food drive and did exceptionally well. I am very proud of them all, they earned it.
