Association Membership

The Iowa City Area Christian School Association (ICACSA) plays a crucial role in the ongoing ministry of the school. Those interested in being an active voting member of the Association must support Heritage Christian School's bylaws, which include the school's Statement of Faith, and must sign the Association membership form. In addition, members must pay annual dues of $5. If you would like to become a voting member and commit to being a regular attender at the meetings, held twice each year, please stop by the office to fill out the form and pay the dues. If you'd like to renew your membership, please do so now. All memberships expired March 1st so if you're wondering if your membership is current, it's likely not. :-) Mark your calendars for the Spring Association Meeting coming up on Thursday, May 9th...board elections, new Head of School announcement and more...details to follow shortly!

Pray for the Nations

April: Miss Mysnyk & Anani
“The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in His love He will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17
Please pray for :

  1. Protection (physical, spiritual, emotional, etc.)
  2. Boldness (to share Jesus authentically and powerfully)
  3. Peace (people of peace to help share the Good News)
  4. Assurance (that God is with them and is for them)
Sports Update

The Heritage Eagles participated in a track meet last week Wednesday. The rain stayed away, and we were able to enjoy some mild temperatures on the all-day event. The Eagles highlighted the day with four 1 st place finishes, the 5 th /6 th girls Sprint Shuttle relay (Shay, Elise, Sariah, Anjali), 5 th /6 th girls 1600 Meter Medley (Anjali, Sariah, Elise, Shay), Trey Montgomery in the 800m, and a photo finish of the 7 th /8 th grade boys 1600 Meter Medley (Corey, Trey S., Brock, Trey M.) who won by one one-thousandth of a second. The Eagles also came away with sixteen 2 nd place ribbons, thirteen 3 rd place ribbons, seven 4 th place ribbons, and eight 4 th place ribbons. Thank you athletes for the Christ-like character you demonstrated, your hard work, and your teamwork.
