Dear UCA Family,
“For with God nothing will be impossible.” Luke 1:37
It is almost Spring Break, and with it comes vacation for some, and mission trips for others. Our school has a group going to Kenya this year, with 30 students and four staff flying out to Nairobi this morning. The UCC mission trip to Guatemala leaves Wednesday morning, and ten of our students will be participating. We also have students who will be going on other mission trips with their families to serve in different countries. Please pray for those who will be traveling and ministering for the Lord in various places in the following weeks.

WALLA WALLA UNIVERSITY DAYS – ALL SENIORS
Walla Walla University Days will be Sunday-Tuesday, April 2-4. Our seniors will visit WWU and experience a taste of college life, including attending classes, informational meetings, and staying in the dorms. This will be an amazing opportunity to explore what Walla Walla University has to offer and to spend some fun time together as a class. The information obtained will be beneficial for them, even if they are not planning to attend WWU. Our students will have a great time at this event and are required to go.
