Clear your calendar, get your best suit or dress ready, and join your friends from the MCA community at the Maranatha Gala | Reimagined on Thursday, May 20. Truly designed to be an event for the whole community, not only will we have a ticketed live dinner, program, and social hour with limited availability, but we are excited to announce this years’ Maranatha Gala is open to everyone virtually...for free. Never have we been able to offer these opportunities to so many, and we look forward to your attendance, however you decide to participate. Of course, we welcome the return of our successful silent/on-line auction with an opportunity to walk away with some amazing trips, services, and items, all the while, supporting the school with your purchase.

Each year the Maranatha Gala provides an opportunity to not only celebrate and be social, but also come together to create amazing, above and beyond levels of opportunity for our students, staff, and families. From the STEAM Center and Lower School Learning Commons, to the remodeled Cafeteria, the Maranatha Gala is a single night that produces longstanding, positive impacts for our school. Tickets for in-person attendance will be on sale by mid-March, and the link for the virtual program will be updated to this page before the event. We look forward to seeing all of our families, friends, and community members at this Reimagined Gala.

If you have questions, would like to volunteer, or are looking to sponsor/make a donation, please contact our Development Director, Trevor Christian at
