Run With Purpose 2016 Was Amazing!
Thank you for your participation in NBCA's 2016 fifth annual Run with Purpose 5 K run/walk and Kids K on April 16, 2016, at Founders’ Oak in Landa Park. This professionally chip-timed competition provided a fun opportunity to unite NBCA with its community while focusing on every step of 1 Corinthians 9:25-26; "...we do it for an eternal prize. So I run with purpose in every step”. Another record-breaking year!! With the most sponsorships and 427 registered participants, you've helped to make the 2016 5th Annual Run With Purpose 5K/Kids K the most successful one yet! Run with Purpose-2016 has helped raise money to improve technology on both campuses by providing classrooms with camera projectors called Elmos.
We are grateful to our sponsors and we hope you will support these businesses!

We cordially invite ALL moms PreK-3 through 5 th grade to attend at 8:30 a.m. that morning in the elementary gym. Note that the time is different from our normal schedule in order to accommodate moms who must get back to work. Thank you to all of you moms for your love and support and service. We can't wait to see you at chapel!
Track and Field Day
We are so grateful to the Outdoor Education class from the secondary campus for sponsoring our Elementary Field Day this year. On Friday, May 6 , elementary students need to report to the elementary campus at the regular time for attendance. We will then transport everyone to the secondary campus and participate in some great events that will show the students' athletic prowess. While we are having fun with these events, our athletic department coaches and staff will also be on hand as scouts and guides for future Wildcat talent! All students should bring a couple of bottles of water and a sack lunch. All elementary students will eat at the secondary campus and will remain for the Field Day awards presentation immediately after lunch. In order to teach our students the value of honoring others for their achievements, please do not leave early but allow your student to rejoice in the victory of others.
The #IAmAWildcat event will be held 4:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 14 at the Secondary Campus. Come enjoy fellowship, dinner, games, and a concert! Kona Ice of New Braunfels will be on hand to sell shaved ice with 20% of sales going back to the school. We still need volunteers to help with this event.
Elementary Commencement Service
Our Second Annual elementary commencement service for kindergarten and 5th grade will take place on Tuesday, May 24, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. in the elementary gym. We would love for you to join us for this special event to celebrate our young students as they progress to an important next step in their education.
We are excited to announce that our Annual Fund is getting close to our goal. We have a goal this year of raising $200,000. Currently, we have raised $112,285, leaving only $87,715! In addition to financial gifts, many have shared by praying for the school and giving of their time. Thank you to so many of you who have given so generously to benefit the school either through gifts of money, time, or prayer. We greatly appreciate each of your gifts and look forward to seeing who the Lord is going to use to finish our goal this year. In addition to the Annual Fund, we are extremely happy to announce that the playground initiative was met through your generosity; and several other initiatives are tremendously close to being met. There is no Gala this year, so we invite you to join us in this Go Fund Me endeavor. Each gift, no matter the size, gets us a little closer! DONATE HERE. You can also share it on Facebook, Twitter, E-mail or Text to friends and family.
