Keeping the Faith and Keeping Connected

January 30, 2020

And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister.

Colossians 1:21-23

Clorox Wipes Needed

We are asking families to consider donating 1-2 containers of Clorox Wipes as the flu season is in full swing. These are used in the fellowship hall each day to wipe down tables and it would be nice for every classroom to have one so that they can wipe down doorknobs, tables, chairs, etc. Please drop these items off at Mr. Schnipper's office. Thank you for your help!!

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).
