The Power of Words: A Student Devotional

"The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy." Proverbs 12:22

There are about 171,476 words in the english language. The average person speaks about 20,000 words a day. How many of our words bring glory to God? How many of our words are used to bring people down? How many of our words are used to lie?

Engineering the Future

Any curious passerbys may have noticed the mysterious mechanical hum of machinery emanating from room 118 throughout the past week. The unlikely culprit? Four 3D printers, courtesy of Indy's own "1st Maker Space." Dr. Pignan Shi, teacher of the new "Introduction to Engineering" class, uses the printers daily in his lessons. For high school students, the lessons learned in the class are invaluable: "Students learn 3D design and printing and how the design process works." 

Nyaka AIDS Orphan Project

In a previous post, we described GCA Freshman Cameron Northern's charitable work for Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project. After Cameron shared her "100 for 100" campaign, a call to raise $100 per day for 100 days, at GCA's chapel service, the students donated money for Nyaka. In just one day, GCA gave $1,340.
