MCA Social – Thursday, Feb. 8

MCA Social – Thursday, Feb. 8

It’s new. It’s fun. It’s a chance to meet new MCA families and connect with familiar ones. It’s the MCA Social.

This year, on Thursday, February 8 from 6:30 – 7:00 p.m. (actually, if you come 15 minutes earlier, we’ll be ready and you’ll have first dibs on the free food).  Maranatha would love to fill the LWCC lobby with our MCA family. There will be music provided by the jazz band, free cookies, coffee, and a popcorn bar. If you feel the need for a specialty drink from the new Coffee House, you will receive 20% off your order! Plus, you will have a chance to capture the moment in front of our “Hollywood banner.” We will have a photographer present, stomper, and Mr. Sullivan will be available for photo-opps!

Mark your calendar and plan on coming to the first MCA Social.

Of course you will be staying for the Annual Business Meeting in the sanctuary that will immediately follow the MCA Social.

Annual Business Meeting – February 8

Annual Business Meeting – February 8

You are invited to attend MCA’s Annual Business Meeting scheduled for Thursday, February 8. It will be held in the Living Word Sanctuary and begins with a social time in the Lobby at 6:30 p.m. followed by a one hour inspiring and informational meeting. This is one of the most important evenings in our school calendar as we come together to review accomplishments and cast vision for next year. Mr. Sullivan will be providing measureable updates on the school’s Strategic Plan 2021, reviewing our Annual Report, and disclosing tuition for 2018-2019. There is a lot of excitement and momentum as we look to next year. We already have numerous new student applications with more enrolling within the next two weeks for the 2018-2019 school year. These numbers are unprecedented in MCA’s 39-year history.

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, February 8, as we celebrate the great work God is doing at Maranatha Christian Academy.
