CLA Lions Baseball Game

Generally, we don’t post sports updates here.  That’s because our athletics are not really about “winning” as much as they are about competing well and for the Lord.  But a recent game (Tuesday) for our baseball team is worth noting. The game was against Delavan JH, a team with whom many of our players share summer baseball experiences. And also a team that had won 9 games and lost only 1 prior to our game with them.  The competition was strong. The boys played well, and it was a very close game… and the CLA Lions ended up losing, in extra innings, 10-8. But the character of the boys (on both teams) was evident. What a wonderful game to watch. Thank you, Lions Baseball team, for showing that you can win on God’s scoreboard, even if the results say it was a loss.  Well done!


Specifically for Christian Life Academy families, we have a closed facebook group called “Christian Life Academy Lions’ Den.” We encourage all of our parents who have a facebook profile to join! This is where we will be posting the weekly Lion Tales as well as information that is helpful for our school family. You can search for the group or go to the following web address:


From the Principal's Desk

I would just like to share two verses with you that had a great impact on my week this week… I hope they will also bless you! The Lord gives us the words we need each day:

“The name of the Lord is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” - Proverbs 18:10

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” - Romans 15:13  

In Christ,      Mr. Horning
