A Mustard Seed
Jesus used the parable of the mustard seed in Matthew 17:19-21 to emphasize the comparison of the small size of the deposit of faith needed to elicit a change in circumstances when praying to God.
Building a new school is not for the faint of heart- or faith. In these economic and militant secular political times, it certainly isn't easy. Deep down, you know it is necessary. If you don't have children, or you are one of our Facebook friends in other cities and states, we have reserved the most important role for you. Prayer. There is no more important capital for a Christian school than the lifting up of prayer. We ask for, and appreciate, yours!
If you have children, lets discuss what you will not find at Faith Christian Academy. If you are looking for athletics, you won't find that here. If you are looking for road trips on chartered buses, look elsewhere. If you want big buildings with big rooms and big gymnasiums and big playgrounds, you have lots of other places to look. If you are looking for big organizations bulging with warm bodies; nope, not here.
What you will find at Faith Christian Academy is the hard work of educating children where God is welcome in the classroom every day, one day at a time. We expect much of our students spiritually, academically and behaviorally. Some learn faster than others but all are valued, all are loved. All get that something extra that isn't allowed in the public schools and gets lost in the shuffle at larger ones.
Together as a school, as a staff, as parents, we have faith in God every day that He will provide (see our school name). Some parents are afraid to take that step of faith with small schools while others see that mustard seed. Have faith to be part of building a new kind of school - it only takes a little.
