Pine Forge Academy (PFA) has incorporated life enrichment clubs into their curriculum this year. Students have joined clubs, such as Coding, Genealogy, Media, Chess, Crotchet, Poetry, Art and Debate, that meet for 50 minutes twice a month.

Instructor Lisa Marshall has introduced members of the Art Club to several artistic mediums. The club’s latest work is a fluid art design known as the acrylic painting string technique. This format brings out the creative ingenuity of the students.

Calvary Seventh-day Adventist Church Police

Story by LaTasha Hewitt

After hearing of the tragic loss of Officer Katie Thyne, killed in the line of duty just blocks from their church, members from the Calvary church in Newport News, Va., went into action. Thyne had stopped a vehicle for a drug investigation. When she asked the driver to get out of the vehicle, the driver accelerated, dragging Thyne approximately one block and pinning her between a tree and the car doors. “When I heard about the incident, I just knew we had to do something,” says T. DuWayne Privette, the pastor of Calvary.
