THY WILL BY HILLARY SCOTT
Dear Community Friend,
Lake Mead Christian Academy has provided quality education for young people in the Henderson/Las Vegas area for 25 years. Blessed with steady growth and high parent satisfaction, we now begin the exciting task of designing, funding, and building a new campus for secondary students! With such an outstanding opportunity, we need the "all-in" participation of the community - both those internally connected to LMCA and those not directly linked to us.
United Way of Southern Nevada (UWSN) is encouraging summer reading by hosting a “Flip Through Summer” Book Drive during the weeks of May 4 - 14 (Monday - Thursday from 8:30am – 5:30pm) at United Way of Southern Nevada. Community members can drop off their new and gently used books (books geared towards birth - 12) during the weeks of May 4 through 14 to UWSN. The books will be distributed during a community-wide book swap held at “Flip Through Summer” on May 16 from 10am – 1pm at Springs Preserve. This fun-filled summer kickoff will feature a walk down storytime lane with special character visits, book nooks, live entertainment, face painting, and unique booths from southern Nevada’s finest community resources.

The 64th annual National Day of Prayer is held on the first Thursday of May all across the nation. This day "stands as a call to us to humbly come before God, seeking His guidance for our leaders and His grace upon us as a people." It is based on a Judeo-Christian system of values. Join us as we pray for our families, communities, and leaders (those in authority). We will also worship God in song and in the reading of Scripture.

The program will touch on and discuss matters such as sex, purity and relationships for girls in the age range of 11 - 35 (junior high scool, high scoolers and young adults).
For more information I would love to discuss and provide that to you. The objective is to remind young ladies of their invaluable worth in Christ Jesus. In addition, these events will be an open forum for the girls to discuss subject matters such as sex, purity and relationships in a safe environment. These events are custom made and planned for young ladies within the age ranges noted.
We all know the power of God experienced when we pray. This is the 64th annual observation of the NDP. This year this prayer event will be on Thursday May 7th. On that day churches across the nation will unite in prayer. As we pray we will be
testifying of our faith in God and our belief that this nation was founded on the truth of God's word. You are invited to join with churches from across the
nation in this special time of prayer. Join with us at the Grant Sawyer Building as we pray in unity to
our Lord and Savior. Plan to arrive by 11:30 am. The prayer will start at noon. It will be followed by a time of praise.
Here are the details.
