Maranatha Association of Parents (MAP)

Hello MCA Families!

Welcome to MAP –  Maranatha Association of Parents!  MAP is Maranatha’s version of P.T.A. and led by all volunteers!  We are here to encourage community among families at Maranatha, bless our teachers, provide opportunities to serve and most importantly lift our school in prayer.  We provide many opportunities to do those.

There are monthly Family Events at Maranatha.  Each event is after school and work hours so all MCA families and students are able connect and have fun!  We have a ministry called Bless Our Teachers (B.O.T.).  This ministry serves our teachers and staff from KinderPrep Preschool through 12th grade with monthly meals, special gifts, Teacher Appreciation Week and a beautiful Christmas dinner!  Another ministry is our New Family Shepherd (N.F.S.) that welcomes each new family at MCA to help them along in their experience in a new atmosphere to make their transition as smooth as possible. Our Elementary Room Parents have a specific Coordinator, that collaborates with the classroom teacher, who oversees and is a resource for them during the year.  And finally we have our wonderful Prayer Ministry which meets every week to lift our school, teachers, kids and community before the Lord.  You will want to be a part of this special ministry!

We hope and pray that you will be able to take advantage of the many opportunities MCA has to get connected and be a part of our awesome school!  You have your kids in the right place!  They have teachers, peers, and parents who are surrounding them with the love of Jesus!  And we are providing FUN events and opportunities because the Christian walk is not boring!  It is alive and active!!

It’s going to be a great year!  God bless abundantly and hope to see you soon!
