for The Silverdale Center
GOAL: $10.5 Million
RAISED TO-DATE: $540,145
Capital Campaign Kickoff As the Capital Campaign for The Silverdale Center kicks off, we are anticipating great things from our God! This weekend in all 9 services, Silverdale Baptist Church Senior Pastor Tony Walliser will cast the vision for Silverdale Baptist Church which includes investing in a portion of The Silverdale Center. Next week, you will receive a mailer from the Academy with Academy highlights and exciting information on The Silverdale Center, including ways to be a part of the campaign. The Silverdale Center will no doubt change lives for the Kingdom of Christ. It will allow our students opportunities that will showcase their God-given talents and set us apart as the premiere Christian school campus in Chattanooga. Will you join us where God is at work?
The deck will overlook Friar Branch and will be a feature directly off the cafe and concessions area.

Worship The Creator Night - February 6, 2018 6:30pm
Mrs. Hansard: Eternal Perspective What else matters? As an educator, it is essential to assess students and project their outcomes. As a Christian educator, an additional calling is to pour into the lives of students the love of Jesus Christ and help them discover their identity is found in Him alone. At the end of the day, we embrace the truth in Scripture which says, “for what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?” (Mark 8:36) That is why we are here. That is why we are Silverdale, and that is why we are expanding. We understand that education is more than having our students attempt to “attain” the world. There is more to be done! And we know that the expansion of the Silverdale Center will be a vehicle to assist us in getting that work done.

Worship The Creator Night SAVE THE DATE - FEBRUARY 6TH As many of you are aware, every February we have mandatory parent meetings to keep you informed of everything going on with your child. This year during this mandatory meeting, we will celebrate our Lord with you as we present to you “Worship the Creator” night from 6:30-8pm. This will be a fun-filled night for children grades K-5th where they will play games, do crafts, and experience the sense of community like never before. We ask that our 6-12th grades share in our worship service in the sanctuary with their parents. This will be an incredible experience! We began a journey two years ago asking God to reveal to us where He wanted us to go in regards to expansion for our students. We believe the Silverdale Center is the answer. And we look forward to sharing with you the results of our journey on February 6, 2018. We are excited! We are ready and we need you! Please begin praying now as a family asking what part God would have you play in this dream for our students. This God-size dream is coming to fruition, and it will take each of us to make this a reality. Please join us in this kingdom venture. We look forward to seeing you on February 6 at 6:30pm in the sanctuary.
Prayerfully consider your gift.
