Back Creek is relocating!
A NOTE FROM OUR HEAD OF SCHOOL
Dear Back Creek Families,
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
Jeremiah 29 teaches that when we open our hearts to His leading, God’s perfect knowledge, balanced by His perfect character, unfolds a path for His glory and our good—a path far greater than we could ever imagine. As you are about to discover, our great God has been working behind the scenes to give BCCA a future and a hope with eternal impact.
Early summer of 2017, numerous board conversations with Eastside church led us to the possibility of relocating our school to the Eastside church campus. Simultaneously, God provided a 27- classroom facility through the generosity of an area developer. Over the coming months, the board will be working to relocate, remodel, and establish this facility on the Eastside campus for the 2018 school year.
Easily accessed from I-485, the Eastside campus is two exits south of our existing campus. It enlarges our demographic reach to the projected growth off Rocky River road, while still offering easy access to our university area families. The Eastside campus also offers a larger facility and more acreage for future school and church growth.
The School Board of Back Creek Christian Academy is convinced that this direction comes from the mind and heart of a miracle-working God. In following His direction, we are committed to maintaining careful and complete communication with all our Back Creek Christian stakeholders. This letter, the first communication piece, will be followed, by a special Q and A on Septembe12th , a future web site link, and periodic email updates.
What can you do? As with all our endeavors, parent support is essential to our success. First, pray! God is leading and we do not want to miss His direction in this next step. Second, invite everyone you know to become a part of our school family. We are a school intent on sharing and living the Gospel message. Share this reality with conviction. Third, in future days, you will be given specific opportunities on how to support this move through your financial contributions. Begin asking God what He would expect you to do and who He would ask you to speak with about supporting this endeavor. (Perhaps you have a family member, coworker, area business owner, or foundation that you could speak with about a financial gift or an in-kind gift.)
Weather permitting, there will be two Q and A sessions this coming Monday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. and Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m. Join me and the school board as we anticipate God’s blessings for Back Creek Christian at Eastside Church.
Janet K. Ballard, Head of School
