Parent Letter - 3/8/24

March 08, 2024
By Bill Sharp

Dear Warrior Nation,

In Acts chapter 8, we read of Philip, one of the disciples of Christ, and his encounter with an Ethiopian eunuch, a man in charge of the entire treasury of the Ethiopian queen.  When Philip came across the eunuch, the eunuch was engaged with the Word, specifically in this passage from Isaiah: “He was led like a sheep to the slaughter, and as a lamb before its shearer is silent, so he did not open his mouth.  In his humiliation he was deprived of justice.  Who can speak of his descendants? For his life was taken from the earth.”  The passage, of course, refers to Jesus and his crucifixion.  As a result of Philip’s explanation of the scripture, the Ethiopian was moved to ask Philip to baptize him on the spot.

This passage ties both Elementary and Secondary Spiritual Emphasis Days together around the concept of Authentic Faith – truly living a life that honors God and points others to Him.  The Elementary students heard from Ms. Cassidy on Monday and Tuesday, focusing on using our tongue for God – speaking truth, building others up, and praising God.  Philip spoke truth to the eunuch; his heart and life were forever changed.  In Secondary, Pastor Mike Camire of Parkway Baptist Church gave students hands-on, practical ways to live out their faith and share it with others.  Knowing God and His Word is only the first step – Doing, by living it out, is what changes the world.

Monday marks the official beginning of the fourth quarter – the home stretch!!  Students will very quickly lose focus as the weather warms and thoughts of summer plans invade their minds.  It is this time we really need your help at home – keeping them focused on doing homework, studying, and working on projects with excellence so they can finish strong.

Upcoming events to note:

  • Open House – 21 March at 6:30. Still plenty of space for your friends and co-workers to call and register.  They will hear from administrators, parents, and students, get a campus tour, and meet our awesome teachers. Encourage them to call 804-276-3193 to register.

All 4 Him!
