Lower School Volunteer Needs

Our Parent-Teacher Fellowship has been working on getting organized for the fall and we need YOUR help! Please pray about where you can serve your school and contact us with any questions.

Our biggest and most immediate needs are listed below but we have many other opportunities to serve if these don’t fit your schedule.

ARRIVAL DUTY: Assist the kids getting out of the cars in the morning and getting into the building. Serve one day a week from 7:50-8:20 a.m. to help make arrival a safe and happy place!

DISMISSAL DUTY:  This entails using your cell phone to correspond with a person inside the school to give them names of the families in car line. Serve one day a week from 2:50-3:15 p.m. to help make dismissal run smoothly!

LUNCH DUTY: Serve ONCE every FOUR weeks. Assist all grades from 11:30-1:00 with general lunchroom needs, opening containers, and wiping tables.

Please let us know what day and position you are interested in!

For LUNCH helpers, email Erin Calihan or call or text 859-619-4851.

For ARRIVAL/DISMISSAL helpers, email Sarah Kitchens or call or text 859-230-8514.

Prayer and Fasting for New School Year

Trinity Christian Academy would like to encourage your family to make fasting and prayer a part of your back-to-school routine. Join us as we commit to pray for our students, faculty, and staff in the coming week.

Pray that students and teachers will recognize their dependence on the Lord.
Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up; God is our salvation. Our God is a God of salvation, and to God, the Lord, belong deliverances from death. – Psalm 68:19-20

Pray for students to love learning about God’s world.
The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge, but the mouths of fools feed on folly. – Proverbs 15:14

Pray for students and teachers to embrace the glory of God in all they do.
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night reveals knowledge. – Psalm 19:1

Pray for students and teachers to work with diligence and put forth their best efforts.
The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied. – Proverbs 13:4

Pray for the Lord’s protection of students and teachers as they interact with each other.
The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things. – Proverbs 15:28

Pray that God would free students from the pressure of trying to be like everyone else by instilling in them the confidence to know that they are uniquely made by you.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. – Psalm 139:14

Pray that students and staff would receive correction well.
The ear that listens to life-giving reproof will dwell among the wise. Whoever ignores instruction despises himself, but he who listens to reproof gains intelligence. – Proverbs 15:31-32

Pray for opportunities to share their faith with others.
They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom and tell of your power, to make known to the children of man your mighty deeds, and the glorious splendor of your kingdom. – Psalm 145:11-12

Pray that when they do what is wrong, they would bear consequences that lead them to repentance. Pray that when they do what is right, you would bless their obedience that they may learn to love your ways.
The backslider in heart will be filled with the fruit of his ways, and a good man will be filled with the fruit of his way. – Proverbs 14:14

Pray that your word would be on their hearts and in their minds as they learn.
Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord. – Proverbs 16:20
