All for HIM
TCA’s motto sums up why we exist. TCA desires to not only equip our students with the skills needed for life to drastically influence their community, but also to foster a community of spiritual growth. TCA provides numerous opportunities for students to grow in their walk with Christ:
A time built into the school day where students can come together, worship and learn from God’s word. Chapels are led by TCA teachers and local pastors affiliated with the school. Some of the topics that have been used in chapel include: The Fruit of the Spirit, Missions, Thankfulness, The Anchors of Life, and a book study on the book of Romans.
Every so often the students are pulled together to worship Christ as a community. This may involve special praise and worship chapels or a Christmas chapel.
Led by the teachers of TCA, students have the opportunity to gather in men and women’s groups to study the Bible. Bible studies are conducted in the Middle School and High School and on a weekly basis.
Student Led Prayer
Initiated by CRU, a group of students gathers together to pray specifically for the community of TCA.
Led by the students, an informal time of praise, worship, and testimonies takes place once a week in the school auditorium.
Students have the opportunity to lead worship in their chapel services. Meeting twice a week to practice and prepare for chapel, students have the opportunity to lead, help select songs, sing, and play instruments.
Built into the school calendar, TCA provides opportunities for the Middle School and High School students to re-ignite for Christ. In October, the High School students enjoy two full days out at High Point Camp filled with time of fellowship, team games, rec time, small group sessions, and five messages presented by a special outside speaker on the theme for the retreat. In January, Middle School students enjoy three full days of school activities and outside events to help build community and unity within the Middle School.
Once a quarter in the High School, students take a break from chapel and meet in small groups where they discuss topics that have been presented in Chapel. Small groups are mostly led by the students and provide a time of intimate conversation, reflection, and prayer as they discuss what they have been learning in chapel. This is also a time to take the messages from chapel to a deeper level and find further ways to apply the truths of God’s word.
