Keeping the Faith and Keeping Connected

November 21, 2019

Therefore when we could bear it no longer, we were willing to be left behind at Athens alone, and we sent Timothy, our brother and God's coworker in the gospel of Christ, to establish and exhort you in your faith, that no one be moved by these afflictions. For you yourselves know that we are destined for this.

1 Thessalonians 3:1-3

Heritage Academy Spirit Wear

We have some awesome new Heritage Spirit Wear that you can buy. We have 1/4 zip pullovers and t-shirts for sale. If you are unsure what size to purchase we have a sample of an adult medium, adult large, and adult x-large in the office that you can try on. A portion of every sale is given to Heritage Academy so buying some Spirit Wear is a great way to support Heritage Academy. You need to order before November 30th so that all orders are available to pick up before Christmas.

Old School Values, New School Schedule

Heritage Academy is a University-Model® School, facilitating students' access to excellent education, increased time with family, and opportunities for growth toward maturity while providing a cost-effective, college-preparatory education. In an age where family life is becoming increasingly fragmented, the unique structure of the model also serves to “turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers ” (Malachi 4:6).
