Geetings BCCA Families,

This past week the teachers all went to Camp Alamisco for professional development meetings. After the meetings, the camp offered boat rides for the Gulf States Conference staff. Riding around Lake Martin, I was impressed by the beauty around me. I loved watching the wake from behind our boat spread out behind us and tried to follow them as far as I could. At some point, you could no longer tell which waves came from the our boat and which ones were from other boats or the wind. The waves remind me of Adventist Education. The ministry of Big Cove Christian Academy is rippling out like a wave. As we touch the lives of our students, their families and our community is also changed. You are invited to be a part of the wave, and to prayerfully consider how you can touch the lives of the students in our school.

Parent Teacher Conference (Oct 13) 1-5pm

Please sign up for Parent-Teacher Conferences. This is a vital part of teaming up with your child and your child's teacher to ensure they are progressing academically, mentally, and spiritually. No after school care that day. The Principal will be reaching out to the parents personally to schedule an appointment. Thank you!

Tate Farms Field Trip (Oct 14)

We are excited about our upcoming field trip to Tate Farms on Oct. 14! There are many fun activities to do including: Corn Cribs, Hay rides to pick pumpkins, Barnyard playground featuring 40 foot tube slide, Pedal Kart Track,Three Jumping Pillows, Barnyard Animals, corn trains, and LOTS more! More details to come.

Community Outreach (Cards & Bucket)

One of BCCA's goal is to be a light in the community. The Principal informed us that our sister Decatur church was putting together Flood Buckets for victims of Hurricane Ida. In order to build morale and encouragement, the students used their creative talents to make cards. These cards will be included in the buckets. Thank you to all who donated towards this initiative.

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up as indeed you do. (1 Thessalonians 5:1)

Yardsale/Car Wash Update

PRAISE GOD for great weather! We had a full day between our yard sale and car wash events. We had vendors made up from the church, school, and the community. The total amount raised at the yard sale was $1389, which will be used for improvements to the school! The total amount raised from the car wash was $301. Thank you Avryl Navarro for heading this up, and for the youth who came out to support. Funds from the Car Wash will go towards the Distance Learning Sophomore class trip. More importantly the community saw that we were active, and hopefully became more aware of our church/school presence. Special thanks to our BCCA Teachers, and everyone who helped with washing cars, setting up tables & donations, selling items, serving food, donating items, cleaning up and for praying! May we continue to be witnesses in our community in service for the Lord.

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago” (Ephesians 2:10, NLT).

One of the major teachings of the Bible is that you are a one-of-a-kind, original masterpiece of God. You have a unique thumbprint, eye print and voiceprint. Your heart beats at a slightly different rhythm than anyone on earth! God loves variety and and God loves you, His masterpiece.

At Big Cove Christian Academy we want every student to know that God has a plan and a purpose for their life; that every child is uniquely designed to make a difference in the world. Followers of Jesus can walk tall in the knowledge that he or she is the creation of God—created in love and called to do a work God planned ages ago. So, have faith and follow the plan God has for you now and for eternity!

Love Always,

Pastor Randy Mills
