The second graders at SCA took the Christmas story to the Phoebe Putney Senior Living Center on Beattie Road. They sang praise songs and recited Bible verses to all in attendance. They finished their visit by singing Christmas carols and handing each resident a hand-made Christmas ornament.
The students did a wonderful job sharing the Gospel and the message of hope with the residents. What a blessing to see the students put hands and feet to their faith and share it with others this Christmas season! Good job, second graders!

If a visitor came to our school on Friday, March 27 this year, they would be surprised to see war paint, crazy colored t-shirts and classrooms filled with yells of students cheering on their classmates. On this day, Sherwood Christian Academy’s grades fought hard for the coveted trophy declaring the best grade on campus. It is called Sherwood Cup.
Every year, different events pop up, which makes every Sherwood Cup different in some fashion. These events include things like geography bowl, chess and eating contests to soccer, flag football and sock war. It is a relaxed day when teachers and students get to cut loose and have fun without being in a classroom setting. However, at the end of the day it was all about the trophy. In the middle school, the seventh grade won, which was a great surprise. They are the only grade in Sherwood history to win two years in a row and the only grade to ever win their sixth grade year. For the high school, it was no shock when the class of 2015 walked away with the trophy, winning it all their final year. As a senior, I have participated in seven Sherwood Cups, and each year they get better and better. Some of my favorite high school memories come from this day because it made us pursue teamwork together, ultimately making my senior class an even tighter family.

Sherwood Christian Academy’s production of Annie Jr. sure made people smile. Mrs. Vickie Knuckles directed the play, and she was very excited to have the students on the stage performing. There was a large cast this year, and within this cast lies some great potential and fantastic abilities.
The acting was dynamic, the music was charming, and the dancing, choreographed by Mrs. Barbara Pippin, was rhythmic, bouncy and energetic. Mrs. Pippin has stated that she was very happy to be a part of the production. She and Mrs. Knuckles worked very hard to make this play a wonderful experience for both the students and the audience and they pulled it off wonderfully.
Thank you to all the patrons of the arts who came to support these young actors! They are exploring and defining the gifts God has given them and we cannot wait to see what the future holds for these talented students.

The cast of “Singin’ in the Rain” transported crowds back in time to 1950s Hollywood, complete with flashy flapper costumes, detailed props and impressive tap dancing. Not to mention there really was rain!
Each night of the three performances, crowd size was large, with one night exceeding the largest number of attendees the theater has ever held. There was one theme consistent throughout the show – humor for all ages. “Singin’ in the Rain” truly is “one of the greatest musical comedies of all time.”
Thank you for sharing your talents with us, cast! And, congratulations on another successful show!
Spiritual Emphasis Week is a great time every semester when we try to give SCA students some time to focus on spiritual growth. This year we were blessed to have Dr. Kurt Wise come and present to our students a case for Biblical, young-age creationism. Dr. Wise is a biology professor at Truett McConnell College in Cleveland, Georgia. He is also the director of the Center for Origins Research at Truett. Dr. Wise is considered one of America’s leading voices in the discussion supporting young-age creationism.
In chapel sessions each day, he brought a tremendous wealth of scientific knowledge to our students to help them in their understanding of this issue. More importantly, Dr. Wise dug into God’s Word with our students to emphasize to them how critical it is for them to know and have faith in the Bible as the foundation for all of their beliefs on this topic and any other. Dr. Wise also spent time in some of our Bible classes each day fielding a variety of questions. He also spoke at Sherwood Baptist Church each evening presenting some scientific creationist theories that seem to be superior to evolutionary theories. It was a great week to dig into God’s Word and discover some of His truths as they pertain to this critical topic of Biblical, young-age creationism.

Thank you Dr. Wise for taking the time to come pour into our students this past week!
On the cold blustery Saturday morning of November 1, the Sherwood Christian Academy Varsity Boys and Girls Cross Country Teams ran in the GICAA State Cross Country Meet at the Industrial Children’s Home in Macon. The team included a group of seven boys and four girls running a 5K race against teams from Covenant, Westminister, Praise Academy, Central Fellowship and Skipstone.
Samantha Pappas won the girls race while Joshua Kendrick finished fifth and Ryan Canidate finished eighth in the boys race. The guys finished runner-up in state to Covenant Academy and ahead of Westminister, Central Fellowship, and Praise Academy. Great way to finish the season Eagles!!!
Sherwood has two All-State runners, Joshua Kendrick and Samantha Pappas, and almost had three as Ryan Canidate finished in 8th place just one spot short of making the All-State Team. So proud of everyone’s efforts this year, great way to finish the season Eagles!!!
The team was coached by Coach Mark Meager and Coach Lakisha Elder. Thank you both for your efforts and sacrifice to teach these athletes how to compete with excellence while honoring the Lord with their talents.
