The WCA Middle School Chorus and Upper School Chapel Band are collaberating to bring you another night of worship this Friday, April 26th.  This concert on the lawn is a community event so mark your calendars and invite your friends and family to join us for this outstanding event. 

Last year's performance presented the gospel experience from creation to resurrection.  This year's concert will take us from the resurrection to present day with musical expressions of His grace and love from countless generations.

The concert will be held on the lawn of WCA's soccer field.  The field opens at 6:30 pm with the concert beginning at dusk.    You are invited to bring blankets, chairs, picnic baskets and lawn games to make this a fun Friday evening with your family. 

We look forward to seeing you there for this amazing journey.

This Saturday, April 27th, you will have the opportunity to receive a FREE athletic physical for your student athlete(s)!  

Athens Piedmont will be providing free physicals for all WCA students from 8:00-8:30 am. This is a great opportunity to take care of this now so you don't have to worry about it next year. A physical is good for one calendar year and is required for all athletes.

This event has potential to be a little chaotic but fortunately, our school has an early start time.  Please read all information carefully so that you know what to expect and things can go smoothly for you.

WCA is assigned to POD C/Green and you may arrive as early as 7:45am.  POD C will be marked with a Green sign, and WCA will enter the Rehab Entrance from the South Side of the Oconee Health Campus. (see map attached below)

Make that a 50's twist!  The classic Old Testament story of Joseph is retold in the iconic times and music of the 1950's in this year's spring musical, Not Your Average Joe.  It's surfer beats, leather jackets and surfboards but the gospel truth remains the same - trust the Lord your God with all your heart.  Our students are so excited to share this wonderful story with each of you.  The performance will be held on Thursday, May 2nd, beginning at 6:30 pm.

Here are a few details to note for the night of the performance:

  • Kindergarten students are asked to be in their designated classroom by 6:10 pm dressed up in their outfits and ready to perform first.

As we go through our days, please remember to keep the following WCA families in your prayers. Also, please email Tami Butts (tbutts@wcalions.org) with updated and/or new prayer requests.  It is an honor to pray for each other.

  • Please be in  prayer for Konda Johnson, her husband Brian and their children ( Hollan 12th and Grace 7th).  In January , small nodules were removed from her lungs that were determined to be the same type of cancer removed from her liver in 2015.  She will receive treatments every other week for two months.  The first few days after receiving a treatment are being pretty tough for her and steroids are a part of her regimen which is also a challenge.  Please pray for strength of body and spirits for Konda and her family during this season of battling disease while celebrating their senior, Hollan.
  • Please be in continued prayer for Kim Hardwick, WCA teacher, who is undergoing treatment for recurrent melanoma. Due to the severe reactions she had to her initial treatments her physicians are not recommending continued immunotherapy at this time.  They will be monitoring her closely and make changes in the weeks and months to come.  Thank you for continue to remember her husband, Steve and their children (Ben - Class of 2018, Anna - 10th, Cary - 7th and Ella - 5th) during this time. Kim has set up a caring bridge site where she can share information about her journey. Caring Bridge for Kim Hardwick
  • Please continue to pray for our art teacher, Jackie Kirsche, as she walks through her cancer journey. Her treatments were very successful. The tumor markers in Jackie's blood work are some of the lowest they’ve ever been and she will not begin any conventional therapy until active changes are seen in tumor markers, which will be checked monthly.
  • Anderson Krieger (9th grade) and his family, as he continues the maintenance phase of his cancer treatment. For the most recent updates and specific prayer needs, please follow Sally on social media.
  • Brent Weatherly and his family as he battles cancer. You can follow his journey and receive specific prayer requests. http://dbw26.wordpress.com.

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