MCA Art and the Memory Project
Art 2 did a Fine Arts mission project this year by drawing portraits of impoverished Colombian children through an organization called the Memory Project.
After a 2 week drawing study on portraits and facial features each student was assigned their own child from Columbia to draw. We sent the portraits off in November and they were hand delivered to Columbia in January!
The students really enjoyed this project and the money to participate benefited the learning center the children attend.
MCA’s Visual Arts Program is under the excellent direction of Mrs. Cheri DeanRead More

All Parents are invited to join us on January 16th for our International Chapel:
Our International students will be leading worship in their own languages with opportunity for us to join in, in English, on choruses. You will also hear the International students share the Word of God and pray in their own native languages.
If you have ever considered being a Host Family for an International student, I’d really encourage you to attend this Chapel.
We are excited to have our International students lead this Chapel and thank Mr. Walker for helping to organize it. This will be a time of encouragement and blessing for everyone!Read More
