While the end of the 2019-2020 school year presented challenges with the pandemic, God not only sustained Open Door Christian Academy’s Early Learning Center, Lower School and Middle School, but helped us thrive during this uncertain time as we serve Him. The ODCA staff remained committed to continuous collaboration, gracious assistance/input, and fearless/flexible teaching and learning! Our teachers modeled what it means to be “life-long learners” as they developed and used various tools in new ways, and researched engaging strategies to fulfill existing learning objectives and curricular goals through distant means. The Lord certainly honored and sustained our efforts to fulfill the mission of our school during this unexpected and unprecedented crisis: Open Door Christian Academy is an educational ministry to children, operating as an extension of the Christian home to prepare students spiritually and academically to live the Christian life in our contemporary society. “And these words, which I command to you this day, shall be in your heart; and you shall teach them diligently to your children…” (Deuteronomy 6:6, 7).
Welcome to Open Door Christian Academy and Early Learning Center. We are so glad that the Lord has brought you to our website; we are excited to share how He has blessed many students and fostered their growth and learning throughout their time in our program.
Accept God’s grace. It’s always more than we deserve. You can’t earn it. It’s amazing grace. But denying or refusing it ignores the beauty of it. I challenge you to embrace grace in the new year.
Protect your heart. “Above all else,” the Bible says. Where your heart is, there your treasure will be also. Most likely there are activities, people or places through which your heart is most easily injured. You may not be able to avoid them, but you can be aware so you can “guard your heart.” When you are aware you may be injured, you will build guardrails to lessen the damage.
Think and act eternally. There is more to this life than the world we know today. Jesus said to “store up treasures in heaven.” Whenever possible, I challenge you to consider the eternal consequences of the decisions, investments and actions of your life. Jesus said to live in this world, but not be of this world. How are you making a difference in the world to come by your actions today? The more intentional you are; the more impact you will have.
