Special Thanks

We truly thank you for the kindness shown during the passing of Sister Mildred L. Smith.
Your thoughts, prayers, cards, floral arrangements and attendance at her home going service touched our hearts. We appreciate the love shown to the Smith Family.

Thank you so much for the Birthday card.

Tamia Beasley

Pastor Davis and FBCHP Family,

Our heartfelt thanks to you for rejoicing with us in Christian love at the home going of our beloved Iris Naomi Colmes. Your kindness to the family was greatly appreciated. Your prayers, thoughtful deeds, appearances, and sacrifices lifted our spirits and encouraged our souls. “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.” Psalms 103:2

We pray for your continuous blessings from our most loving and kind God. May we walk in His light together, as we journey home to see Him face to face, the Lord of lords, King of kings: and hear Him say, “Well done thy good and faithful servant.”

In His Service,

The Family

The Highland Park Christian Academy held its “Sing Off” Musical competition with this year’s theme – “Disco/Funk.” Classes performed and sang various songs under this genre. Lip syncing was prohibited. Pre-K4 through Middle School classes were judged in the following categories: Vocal quality, performance (execution, stage presence, and energy), participation, and creativity. First Place received a $100 class prize, Second Place, a $75 class prize, and Third Place, a $50 class prize. Students in Pre-K2 and 3 received a class party for their participation.

Did You Know?

HPCA middle school students had the opportunity to visit SciTech labs in Baltimore, in October. This field study allowed them to investigate critters that inhabit the Chesapeak Bay. Sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students discovered how to use a water sampler and a dissection scope. They collected water samples from the Inner Harbor and learned how to identify different species of organisms living on a biofilm disc. They tested the water for temperature and salinity and explored how water quality affects the species of organisms found at different depths.
