Lions Weekly: February 28, 2024


A Note From Mr. Sandefur

Lion Family,

As we enter the final days of February, I am filled with immense gratitude for the incredible moments we've shared during Spiritual Emphasis Week. The outpouring of the Spirit was palpable, and I am thrilled to share that we witnessed 13 decisions for Christ! Our school community coming together in worship, prayer, and reflection has set a powerful tone for the remainder of the academic year. Let us continue to lift each other in prayer, that the seeds planted during this spiritually charged week may continue to grow and bear fruit in the lives of our students.

On a different note, our girls' basketball team has earned a spot in the Final Four, and they are set to play against Goodpasture this Friday. Please join me in prayer for their safety, strength, and that, above all, they bring glory to God through their efforts on the court. In every competition, may our athletes exemplify the principles of perseverance, teamwork, and sportsmanship, reflecting the character of Christ.

In reflecting on the week gone by, I am also incredibly grateful for the overwhelming support shown by our TKA community in contributing to the Love Gala. The generosity displayed by those who gave not only honors God but also contributes to the lasting impact of The King's Academy. Your commitment to the values that make our community thrive is truly commendable. Thank you to each member of the TKA family for your dedication and for being a vital part of the ongoing success of our school.

In Christ,

Jeremy Sandefur
President/Head of School
