Let's Go To The Movies

I Heard The Bells

We have a month packed with Christmas activities and celebrations. So, to kick off the holiday season this week, our staff and students went to see, I Heard the Bells.

I Heard the Bells is a faith-filled Christmas movie that tells the story behind Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s classic Christmas carol, “I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day.” The movie is set inside Longfellow’s Cambridge home in the 1860s.

Tragedy strikes the family when his wife dies in a fire accident. Devastated, Longfellow embarks on a journey of grief that eventually leads him back to God. It also leads him back to his children and the hope that comes through Jesus, who’s the inspiration behind Longfellow’s classic Christmas carol.

It was inspiring to learn the back story on this carol and the life of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Our students enjoyed it!


Graduates Return

It was such a blessing to see three

former NCBA students this past

Thanksgiving. Our hearts were full!

We're thankful for their commitment

to live well and stand strong for the

Lord. It's always inspiring to hear how

they are progressing.

Two of these students are in

Special Forces while the other is

attending school for welding.

Their goals are amazing!

One of these guys was kind enough to bring a car load of treats for our school snack times. He remembered what a big deal it was to have a good snack when he was a student. He also remembered how his dorm smelled, which explains the 4 cans of Febreze he purchased.

What a special time we shared together!


One, Two, Three

Today we graduated three young

men who completed their 15+ month

program. What a day of celebration

it was!

It was a day filled with much thankfulness and praise to God for His transforming power. These students have been given a great gift from their parents and they have all matured physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Please keep these families in your prayers as they begin their next chapter together. Each one is on a different path, but as Philippians 1:6 states:

We are certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.

Congratulations, guys!
