Winter Break 2017

wb2Ready for a four-day weekend?  I think so!  This weekend marks Winter Break 2017 for Westminster Christian.  School will be closed on Friday, February 17th and Monday, February 20th.  Classes resume on Tuesday the 21st.  With the winter we’re having, get outside and enjoy our “Springtime” Winter Break!

BoxTops for Education

box_topsShop, clip and turn them in by Friday, February 23rd – this semester’s deadline.   In the Fall, our community earned almost $600 with BoxTops.  So, before you throw that container in the recycling bin, check it for the pink “BoxTops” rectangle and clip it!  Every BoxTop clipped is worth 10 cents for our school.  You can turn your BoxTops in to your lower school classroom teacher or in the school office.

Prayer Requests

As the body of Christ, we have the privilege of praying for each other. If you have a prayer request that you would like to have included here, please contact Tami Butts, tbutts@wcalions.org.

Please pray for the Krieger family as their son, Anderson (8th), has been diagnosed this morning with a relapse of his leukemia.  He is currently at Scottish Rite hospital in Atlanta.  Thank you for your prayers for Sally (1st grade teacher), Jon and Ian (10th) during this time.

There are members of our community in need of our faithful prayer support. These families have set up blogs that you can follow to keep up to date. As you read the blogs, there is much to pray for and much for which to be thankful.

  • For updates and specific prayer requests for the Needham family (Linley 6th), please read Susanna Needham’s blog to follow their families journey as 3 yr. old, Beck, is undergoing treatment for leukemia. For questions, or to address immediate needs, please contact Julie Tomlin (rblessedhome6@gmail.com).
  • Please be in prayer for Brent Weatherly and his family. He has started a blog where you can follow his journey and receive specific prayer requests. http://dbw26.wordpress.com.
  • Thank you for your continued prayers for Hannie Lanclos and her family as she continues her path of healing.

Thank you for lifting up these members of our WCA family.

Prayer requests are included here at the request, or with the permission, of the family.
