Harmoniously blending the work of redemption and education
Hello BCCA Families,
Spring is here! It is an incredible blessing to be able to see everything starting to bud! This season is a good reminder that new life is beautiful! The students get to witness this transformation each day (weather permitting) throughout the rest of the year. In a cycle of seasons, spring reminds me of the resurrection. Life that was once here has died over the other seasons, but returns in the spring.
New life in spring is a good reminder of Christ’s resurrection. He went through a painful death in order to give us life without having to taste (permanent) death. Even better, he is returning to take us home to heaven! In my mind, heaven will look a lot like spring - flowers, fruits, vegetables, etc. Things will be full of life!
BCCA teaches appreciation of nature through things like garden club, outdoor school, walks, Bible and science class, etc. Spring is always welcome because it is easier to show the students new, budding life outdoors and relate it back to the resurrection. The students always enjoy learning about nature and showing them God’s creation is one of the most valuable lessons they can learn.
We should all be going outside and appreciating what God has made for us!
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. John 11:25-26

Farm Animals for African Families Outreach Project
This semester Mrs. Boyd's class learned during their World Class unit how to be good stewards of the world God has given them. They also learned about different cultures around the world, and that there are areas in this world that are in desperate poverty. As a result, the class decided to team up with a group called "Send A Cow", an organization that focuses on creating African-designed solutions to help families get back the skills and confidence they need to get the most from their land and be independent. They decided that fundraising for funds to send plant seeds and farm animals to these families in need would be a great way to give them a sustainable way to grow and have a continuous food supply versus a one time donation. Through some brainstorming the students decided they would come up with the money themselves by doing chores and collecting change from family and friends. Thank you to all the families for their support in their endeavors to prove that even children can make a difference and "Be the change that our world needs today". Collectively, they raised to date $60 to date. Awesome!

Taking learning outdoors
He is risen. He is not here!
“Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him.” Mark 16:6
The Sabbath is passed. It’s early Sunday morning. Brokenhearted followers of Jesus make their way to the place where on Friday they had laid His lifeless body. And now, upon arrival, they find the stone is rolled away and the tomb is empty!
“What’s happening now? What else can go wrong?” they must be thinking. An awaiting angel has the answer and explains with breathtaking news: “He is risen. He is not here.”
With so many things spinning out of control, you may be wondering: “What’s happening now? What else can go wrong?” If so, remember the resurrection. Remember that the plans of man are many, but, “God has the last word.” Proverbs 16:1 GNB
The last word is: He is risen! He’s alive. It’s proof that God really is in control. And, it’s proof that you can trust Him to control your life. He is risen!
