Dear BCA Families, This is the last Principal’s Corner of the school year. As the school year is winding down students continue to work hard in their academics finishing up projects and assignments and completing tests. We are proud of the academic achievements of students this year.  We rejoice in their spiritual growth as Biblical truths have impacted attitudes and behaviors over the year also.  Grade 1 Chapel Thank you to the Grade one class for reminding us of the beautiful world God created for us. The students hard work was on display as they presented the story of each [...]

Dear BCA Families, Our week began with the Grade 4 class leading Chapel. We continued the school theme of the "I am" statements of Jesus, which were usually told in a parable. The parable we talked about is when Jesus said "I am the true vine" (John 15:4). A parable is a story that Jesus used to teach others about God. Jesus used stories that the people he was talking to could make a connection with so that they could understand God's truths better. In the parable we presented, Jesus said He is the vine. Jesus used a vine [...]

Dear BCA Families,  It has been a great short week!

Dear BCA Families, This week in Chapel, Mr. Cope spoke about Christ’s statement, “I am the true vine”. He spoke of how Christ used common comparisons to things people would understand in His time period.  Mr. Cope said that today, Christ might have used cell phones to represent us and compared himself to the electric power that lets cell phones work. Without power, a cell phone cannot do anything, but with power it can do amazing things. The Bible tells us that with Christ, we can do great things for God, but without His help, we are powerless. Just [...]
