Can You Hear Those Bells?

main image

'Tis the Christmas season and nothing quite says Christmas like the ringing of the bells. Here at Palmetto Christian Academy, the soft ringing can be heard from the band room to the balcony of the sanctuary, with sixth-graders Bella Davenport, Angelina Xio, Ashley DeWeese, and Emily Creech at the handles. Created this year by Middle School band instructor, Mike Doll, the team began by providing acoustics for the Thanksgiving chapel and will be performing "Oh Come all ye Faithful" at the Christmas Concert later this week as well as a potential performance in the spring. When asked what drew them to the bells, Bella Davenport explained that some of the girls had played piano, which lead them to the marimba and then to the bells. Seventh-grader Angelina Xio said, "the bells [sound] natural and pretty. [They] remind me of mini church bells". When asked about their future bell-ringing career, Davenport said, "I sure hope to continue next year". With such a talented group of bells, I can "hear ringing" in their future.

Student Life Center: A Lesson in Faith and Obedience

main image

Construction crews have now completed installation of the chain link fence surrounding the Student Life Center work site. Over Thanksgiving break, it was an exciting step forward as heavy construction equipment was brought onto our campus. Once we receive the clearing and grading permit from the town, which is expected no later than this Friday, December 6, we will begin clearing the site. We can't wait to see the tangible signs of progress on the much anticipated Student Life Center!

As we move forward on building, we must continue to press on in our fundraising efforts. We are asking you to help us make a match on an incredible $20,000 gift from a PCA family. With your generosity, we can join together to bless this gift and match it dollar for dollar. Our goal is to meet the match by December 7!

We encourage you to watch Kristin Klassen's story of faith and obedience. In her quiet time, she shared with the Lord that she wanted to be generous in giving to the Student Life Center. Kristin prayed a really big prayer.. and the result was immeasurably more than she could have imagined.

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the Lord Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it." Malachi 3:10
