A MESSAGE FROM MRS. HYLAND
new_years_fireworks.jpg
Dear Berkeley Hills families,

The faculty and staff would like to thank all of the families for the wonderful Christmas blessing . We greatly appreciate your continued commitment to Christian education at Eden Christian Academy. May the Lord continue to bless you! We pray your Christmas holiday was filled with joy and the assurance of hope in Christ.

We are so thankful for our Berkeley Hills Parent Association.  We are grateful for the special staff breakfast you prepared before our Christmas break. What a wonderful way to start our day!  Many thanks to Jodi Brooks for leading our PA and to all the parents who are involved .

As we begin 2020, I'm reminded of the scripture verses in Ephesians 4:22-24. The author, Paul, tells us to put away our old life - our life before we were believers. We can renew our minds and spirits and encourage one another in our commitment to Christ. I pray that each and every one of our families are blessed in the coming new year.

You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self,
which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the
attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like
God in true righteousness and holiness. Ephesians 4:22-24 (NIV)

Blessings,
Mrs. Hyland
Berkeley Hills Principal
