Dear UCA Family,
“The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8
Congratulations! You have just survived TWO WEEKS with your kids away at UCA! It can only get better! 🙂 This past weekend was a very special weekend. Friday evening was Agape Vespers, Sabbath everyone was together for a campus dedication service, and following church there was a campus-wide potluck where the new students were able to meet their adopted parents from our Spangle Church area. Know that your students are loved, cared for, and lifted up in prayer by many. You are not alone!
Junior Backpacking is loading at the flagpole tomorrow, at 8:00 a.m., for their trip to Independence Creek and Snow Bird Meadow Camp by the North Fork of the Coeur d’Alene River. They will be returning on Sunday, September 4, at around 4:00 p.m. Please note that juniors do not need to attend their 7:15 class tomorrow morning.
The freshman class is heading out on their retreat tomorrow after school. The class will be going to UGM Camp in Ford, WA. We hope that during this weekend they can grow closer together as a class as well as grow closer to God. There is not cell phone coverage at the camp. In case of emergency you can get in touch with us by calling (509) 258-7198.
We will be arriving back on campus by 10 a.m. on Sunday. If you have a day student and would like to pick them up at the Trading Company store on Sunday at 9:30 a.m., please contact Joe Hess at (509) 475-9520.
Monday, September 5, is a regular school day. We know the students may not be excited about school on a holiday, but they will be glad for the time off when home leave comes!
Tuesday, September 6, is the Fall Picnic at Camp MiVoden, and it’s a regular school day. Please see the day’s schedule on This Week at UCA attached. Lunch and supper are provided for day students. Please let us know by Monday morning of special dietary needs. If your day student needs to be picked up and dropped off along the way, we will have a bus stopping at the Trading Company, the NE corner of Hobby Lobby parking lot at the Valley Mall, and the Hayden SDA Church. Students need to sign up in the business office by Monday, September 5.
