WCA September 2016 Newsletter

September 2016
New school year underway!
In August, members of Grace Baptist Church joined hands with Wilmington Christian Academy faculty and staff members to pray for the upcoming school year.  In a "leap of faith" in 1969, Wilmington Christian Academy opened its doors as a direct ministry of Grace Baptist Church.  Today, WCA remains the largest private school in Southeastern North Carolina and welcomed over 800 students and their families on the first day of school!  Please continue to pray that God will keep His hands on WCA as we minister together for our students and their families this school year!

*Lindsay Michelle Benton*
September 29, 1998 - August 28, 2016

It is with deep sadness that we share the recent passing of Lindsay Michelle Benton.  Lindsay joined the WCA family in K4 and was beginning her senior year at WCA.  She was a talented artist and Patriot Cheerleader for many years, with hopes and dreams of becoming a trauma surgeon.  At the age of 16, Lindsay chose to become an organ donor in order to save lives, and through her passing, she did just that. Our hearts are grieved over her home going, and we will miss her beyond the expression of words; however,  we are encouraged knowing that God brings beautiful things out of tragic situations. Please continue to lift her family in your prayers. Till we meet again, sweet Lindsay...

A fund has been established at WCA in Lindsay's name.  
For those interested, the family is requesting that donations be sent to:
Wilmington Christian Academy
Lindsay M. Benton Cheer Fund
1401 North College Road
Wilmington, NC 28405
