WCA Students Share the Gospel at the NC State Fair
Each year, Child Evangelism Missionary Mr. Bob Fowler leads the seventh and eighth grade Bible classes in a week-long training session on how to use the Wordless Book as a witnessing tool. Students then have the opportunity to present the gospel to visitors at the North Carolina State Fair. Approximately 2,000 people stopped by the Good News Express exhibit to hear the gospel, and several accepted Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. More than 50 WCA students participated in this ministry. When asked about their experience, several commented on how much fun it was to witness using the Wordless Book, and they also said it helped them understand more about the many people in the world who need Jesus as their Savior.
Welcome to WCA, Mrs. Bishop!
We are proud to introduce our new third grade teacher, Jennifer Bishop, who has taught for 16 years. Mrs. Bishop's favorite verse is Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thy own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths." In her spare time, Mrs. Bishop enjoys reading and spending time with her husband, Steve, and two dogs, Sawyer and Pepper. Mrs. Bishop is happy to be part of a great team of teachers that are dedicated to their students, and we are very happy she's here!
Ricky Layton shakes hands with Paul Coble, Chair of the Wake County Board of Commissioners
Ricky Layton, '76, was recently awarded Wake County Government Volunteer of the Year. For the past five years, Ricky has hosted a fish fry or BBQ lunch in September, and a breakfast in December for the participants and volunteers of the Wake County Sheriff's Office Citizens Well-Check Program. The Well-Check Program, for seniors who live alone, provides participants with an automated call, 365 days a year, asking if they are in need of assistance. Ricky's wife, Pam, died of ovarian cancer in July of 2011, but even after his loss, the Layton family continued the yearly picnic that September. Ricky and his family have shown true commitment to the participants in the Well-Check program by hosting these gatherings and caring for these Wake County seniors and those who assist them. Congratulations, Ricky, on this tremendous honor!
