Blessings Everywhere

November 16, 2017
By Mrs. Silva Doray

It’s human nature to focus on all the things that are missing from our lives rather than to think of all the blessings we have received. We know that we have been blessed greatly by God, yet we spend much of our time working to obtain all that we think we are lacking.

Meditating on our blessings prepares us to express our thanks to our Lord and Savior for all His provisions in our lives. Here are some areas we can focus on as we ready our hearts to give thanks, not just in November, but all year round.

  • Our health
  • The opportunity to attend school and learn
  • Our friends and family
  • Other people God has placed in our lives
  • Our church and leaders
  • Christ

Happy Thanksgiving!

The Masks We Wear

October 5, 2017
By Mrs. Boer

It's October already, how is that possible?

All month long we will be hearing about Halloween and the costumes everyone plans to wear. As fun as it is to dress up and pretend to be someone or something else for one night, it's alarming how many of us wear a mask every day. Junior High is a difficult time, especially in current times when there is extreme pressure to appear as if we have everything together. It can be so easy to put on a "happy mask" and pretend that all is well when our reality is quite different.

Recently, I have been personally challenged by the temptation of this deception since I am someone who desires to be strong and good at everything I do. However, if I continue to put on my mask, I leave no room for God. In 2 Corinthians 12:10, Paul says that he is made strong in his weakness by Christ alone. Paul could have chosen to hide his weakness and pretend that all is well, but he understood that if he was strong all the time, there was no room for God to show His strength and presence. My challenge for each of us is to take off the mask we wear each day and allow God to shine in our weaknesses.

That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight
in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships,
in persecutions, in difficulties.
For when I am weak, then I am strong.

2 Corinthians 12:10

What an exciting time we are having in the middle school this time of year!

Student Council Elections

Catalina Island, Here We Come!

On Sept. 17, all 7th and 8th grade students will be heading off on a four-day adventure to Catalina Island. We will be studying ocean science through lecture time, hands-on outdoor activities, and free time. Activities will include nature hikes, snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, tide pool study, squid dissection, and astronomy! Current 5th and 6th grade students will get to participate in this trip two years from now when they are 7th and 8th grade students themselves.

End of Quarter/Grading Period Ends – Sept. 29

Can you believe it? This has been an excellent first quarter for our Middle School! What a blessing it is to be a part of CCA!

Fully Serving Jesus

August 3, 2017
By Mrs. Silva Doray

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have
received to serve others, as faithful stewards of
God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10)

Welcome back and how exciting it is that we have chosen 1 Peter 4:10 as our theme Bible verse for this school year. We often hear that we need to be the hands of Jesus, however, I want to challenge each of you to represent our King well in all you do and with all you have.

  • Let your eyes look for places where you can serve.

  • Let your heart show tenderness and love for others as you do the jobs He provides.

  • Let your feet follow His steps and His example of servanthood.

  • Let your hands complete the tasks He gives you — use them to shape, to heal, to provide a gentle touch, to bless, to wipe tears, or do whatever He asks you to do.

Remember, we are His and we are privileged to serve an amazing God!

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year, students. I pray that the year ahead is one in which we will serve Jesus with all that we have!

Grow & Discover at CCA

We understand that the middle school years are major, transitional years and Chandler Christian Academy desires this to be a positive time of growth for your child.

Books and PensDuring these years, the understanding of what the student believes deepens into an understanding of why they believe. At CCA, students are afforded many opportunities to grow in godly behaviors while having fun along the way. It is our prayer that CCA will be a source to help students discover God's plan for their lives.

Chandler Christian Academy is committed to providing an excellent education based on a firm foundation of God's Word. Our goal is to help develop a perspective that enables students to understand, appreciate, and live a Christian life in the world in which God has placed them. The education each student receives will enhance their ability to separate truth from error, not only in Bible doctrine, but also in the facts and issues of their everyday life.
