FCA Students Taking Flight for Christ
December 2018
Isaiah 9:6-7 New King James Version (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!

December is a special month, especially at FCA, as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. There will be several activities at both FCA Campuses to to praise and worship the Christ child. December is an important month for Christians worldwide and more so for our children as we faithfully remember that "Jesus, and only Jesus" is the reason for the season."

Our annual FCA Christmas performance for Grades 1-10 is slated for Thursday, December 6th at River of Praise Church in Yulee. Start off the joy of the Christmas Season with your friends at the Academy. VPK and K5 will perform "Christmas in Their Jammies" at 6:30, First-Fifth Grades will follow, and the Upper School Chorus will perform at 7:30 p.m. Information about this performance can be obtained by contacting Mrs. Jennifer Brooks at jbrooks@fcaangels.com.

Mark the date! Our Holiday Shop will be open Tuesday, December 11th through Thursday, December 13th during school hours. Gifts will be for sale for the children to purchase for their family members. A flyer will be sent home with an envelope to send back with their shopping lists and funds. Helpers will be available to help the children shop and all gifts will be sent home wrapped and ready to place under their Christmas trees!

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!

In Faith and Friendship,

FUN, FOOD AND FELLOWSHIP AT OUR FALL FAMILY FEST!

A wonderful time was had by all at our Fall Family Fun Fest! Community vendors provided food and fun, families provided the fellowship! A little cool weather made the evening even more festive!
Thank you to the FCA PTO for hosting this awesome event!
CONGRATULATIONS KASSIE AND ASHLEY!
Mrs. Kassie Sikes and Mrs. Ashley Benoit were selected by the Florida League of Christian Schools (FLOCS) to share their classroom experience with other Christian educators. It is an honor for teachers to be selected as presenters and to receive this prestigious training.

GRANDPARENTS' DAY AT FCA
Each year, Faith Christian Academy honors its grandparents with prayer, song, and praise. These senior citizens are valued by students and staff for their lifelong contributions to family, education, community, and country. Grandparents are a treasure and FCA loves having these people as part of the school family.
Cross Country Team Recognized for Christian Character
SECC Cross Country Championship was held at Southside Christian School in Waycross, GA on Saturday, October 27th. Faith Christian Academy Boys took 2nd place overall as a team and Girls placed 3rd. Makayla Hay came in 3rd overall for the Girls and Zach Yale placed 4th overall for the Boys. More importantly, both our boys and girls teams were awarded the Most Christ-like Attitude awards!
Great job Coach James Hay and the FCA Cross Country teams!
Guardian Angel Program

We believe God has set us on a mission to grow His kingdom by investing in our students and programs. On behalf of our present student body and those children whom we have yet to meet, I pray you, our Guardian Angels, will become an active and faithful supporter of FCA. Our goal is to raise $50,000. Your financial assistance is greatly needed and appreciated.
