Thank you to Bridgeway Christian Academy for sponsoring Kidding Around Greenville.
One Christian school in Greenville is walking the walk, living out their beliefs of helping others in need. Bridgeway Christian Academy (BCA) recently packed 10,000 nutritious meals for hungry children both locally in Greenville and internationally in Haiti as part of their “Feed the Need” program.
Bridgeway Christian Academy, located at 724 Garlington Road in Greenville, is fully accredited with the Association of Christian Schools International and offers classes for P3 through 9th grade. The school will add grades 10 and 11 over the next two years and be a fully operating high school by August of 2020.
Bridgeway Christian Academy & Feed the Need
The culmination of the “Feed the Need” program was an event on Friday, December 8th at the school where students, families and faculty packed, sealed, and boxed 9,000 meals that will be delivered abroad to hungry children in Haiti through Bethel Mission Outreach, a ministry partner of Bridgeway Church, which is across the street from the school and directly affiliated. Harvest Hope Food Bank in Greenville received 1,000 meals to be given to children right here in our own community.
Children learn by doing and by having meaningful experiences that they carry with them into their own homes, into relationships with their friends, and eventually into their communities.
“We are thrilled to have wonderful partners in Bethel Mission Outreach and Harvest Hope,” said Kyle Meleski, Director of Development at BCA. “This entire campaign has been one that has allowed our students and school families to be part of something truly special. The packing day was a meaningful experience that provided us all the opportunity to serve those in need.”
Part of BCA’s Vision Statement is ‘to prepare students to be Christian leaders by fostering community and world outreach’. By participating in the Feed the Need program, students were able to put those beliefs into action and learn how to be those Christian leaders both here in Greenville and throughout the entire world.
The entire program has been a huge team effort throughout BCA and the community and has lent itself to a teaching moment for the faculty and administrators to show students what it means to be compassionate and loving, especially to those who are in need.
