MESSAGE FROM MRS. HYLAND

"Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests."
Luke 2:11-14 

Dear Berkeley Hills families,

Thank you to all the students, families and friends who attended our Christmas concert.  The entire evening was a true blessing! We truly appreciate your willingness to help us celebrate, worship, and honor the Newborn King - Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior! A special thank you to Mrs. Snavely and Mrs. Rodriguez for investing their God given talents to prepare our students for this beautiful celebration. 

Our thanks also to the Parent Association members who organized and hosted the Christmas Shop for our students.  

The staff at Eden 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.

On behalf of the faculty and staff at Eden Christian Academy, we would like to wish every family a Merry Christmas and a healthy and blessed New Year!

Merry Christmas!
Mrs. Hyland
