CWAA IS LOOKING FOR A VOLUNTEER CARPOOL COORDINATOR – CWAA is looking for a parent volunteer to coordinate carpooling opportunities for the families of CWAA for the 2015-2016 school year. The Carpool Coordinator is responsible for 1) receiving applications from interested families and keeping track of the information provided by families, 2) passing information on to interested families in the same areas, and 3) updating the list as families connect. The Carpool Coordinator is not responsible for arranging carpooling between families. This is the responsibility of the individual families. If you are interested in becoming a Carpool Coordinator, please contact Mrs. Melashenko (lmelashenko@nullcwaa.net) for more information!

Chaplain’s Message

Psalm 103 Graphic

“Let all that I am praise the LORD;
       with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
Let all that I am praise the LORD;
       may I never forget the good things he does for me.
He forgives all my sins
       and heals all my diseases.
He redeems me from death
and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
He fills my life with good things.
My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!”

(Psalm 103:1-5 NLT)

Take some time today to forget about all those deadlines, all that homework, all the stressful stuff in life. Instead spend a bit of time praising God and remembering the good things He has (and is) doing!

Pastor Brent Wilson
