Last Wednesday marked the start of the Fairhaven Baptist Academy school year. We praise the Lord for another year to influence and train students for Christ through Christian education. We are looking forward to what God will do in the lives of these students this year!
We are looking forward to a great year in both Fairhaven Baptist College and Fairhaven Baptist Academy. In preparation for this, it was a special blessing to have Dr. David Sorenson and Dr. Dell Johnson here to challenge our staff at our Educators' Seminar. In addition to sessions with our guest speakers, there were several lectures taught by our own staff. We count it an honor to train young people through Christian education.
Camp Fairhaven is in full swing. It is a great place to learn more about the Lord through daily devotions, Bible stories, and preaching. Each child that attends is sure to enjoy all of the fun activities as well–including swimming, field trips, horseback riding, canoeing, sports, and games! There’s still time to enroll! Call 219-926-6636 for more information, and please pray for this important ministry.
Fairhaven Baptist Academy held its annual Kindergarten Graduation on Thursday, May 25. Everyone enjoyed seeing what the K5 students have learned this year. This special service also included specials by a high school clarinet trio and the high school choir as well as a message from Clint Schreiber. Before we know it, the FBA Kindergarten graduating class of 2017 will soon be the FBA High School graduating class of 2029.
We were blessed with another wonderful graduation service. This year Dr. Rodger Bottrell (himself the father of five Fairhaven Baptist College graduates) was our commencement speaker. What a joy and privilege to see young people going out to serve the Lord!
We were privileged to host the second annual Fairhaven Basketball and Volleyball Tournament - The Conquerors' Challenge. Teams from Cozaddale Baptist Academy in Goshen, Ohio; Prairie Christian Academy in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin; Beth Haven Baptist Academy in Sheridan, Michigan; and young people from Cornerstone Baptist Church in Chicago were all able to join the Fairhaven teams this year. Everyone had a great time. Congratulations to the Beth Haven volleyball team and the Cornerstone basketball team for their first place victories! We are already looking forward to next year's tournament March 15-16, 2018. Click here or on the picture below to [...]
Many of the participants in the fall school fundraiser were able to enjoy a trip to sunny Florida (during the cold Indiana winter)! Highlights included Busch Gardens, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, and the Tampa Museum of Science and Industry.
Adults and children alike agree that Wrestle-O-Rama is a wonderful Fairhaven tradition. The academy boys get to compete, and everyone else gets to enjoy not only watching them, but also enjoying the delicious food! After the wrestling champions have received their trophies, the food auction begins. Mr. Ramos and Dr. Mitchell always find ways to make the bidding exciting! From singles, to families, to academy classes, there was something for everyone to bid on. It was a great night!
The first Fairhaven Baptist Academy PTF (Parent-Teacher Fellowship) of the semester was this past Thursday. The evening included a short patriotic program presented by the elementary choir as well as a high school brass special. We count it a privilege to provide Christian education for our families!
Our academy students compete for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in their age groups at the annual cross country race. Despite the heat, this year's competition did not disappoint. Click on this link or the picture below to view more pictures!
