The girls varsity volleyball team headed to the first round of the GICAA state playoffs Tuesday for the first time in several years. We commend them for reaching their season goal of making it to the state playoffs. The team traveled to Conyers to compete against the #2 seed from the north Young Americans Christian School. The girls competed well and lost in three sets; but as their coach Lisa O’Connor said, “They played well, competed hard, kept it fairly close but lost to a good team.” Congratulations to the girls’ varsity volleyball team on a great season and representing SCA well at state!

Team members: Gracyn Holt, Allyson Adams, Emily Walker, Abby Adams, Blythe Gunter, Maddie Evans, Christian Walker, Carlee Shumake, and Randi Harrelson.

Community Service Days

On October 6 and October 13, the middle school and high school conducted community service days to serve our community and be a blessing. It was a privilege to partner with LaDonna Urick and Mission Change as well as Judy Bowles of Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful. Their partnership is valuable in making these days effective and productive for our students.

We are pleased to continue to strengthen the pillar of community service in our students. Special thanks go out to Campus Pastor Jeremy Davidson and our faculty members for organizing and assisting with these days for us.

A Visit from Johnny Appleseed

Elementary chapel was very special this morning. The boys and girls enjoyed a special time of praise and worship with Kristin Crosby who led our singing and then introduced our special speaker for the day. SCA students enjoyed a surprise visit from John Chapman, better known as “Johnny Appleseed.” Johnny shared with the students all about his school days, apprenticeship and how the Lord led him West to plant apple seeds and the Word of God. Thanks to Sherwood Baptist Church’s Children’s Pastor, Mark Scardino, for an awesome chapel!
