Iron Braid Secret Mission Race

Sat, Jul 21, 2018 – Sun, Jul 22, 2018

Each team will have to make it to the final destination with all the pieces of the secret object. Once you get to the final destination you will need to figure out what the secret object is and put it together. The first three teams to complete the mission will win a prize. Teams will travel on foot and will need to figure out clues which will lead you to your next location. At each location, there will be a hidden object which you must keep safe until your final destination. The race will begin as the whistle blows. Each team must grab their bag which will have a map and your first clue. Use the bag to keep the secret items safe. This event will take most of the day and involve a lot of walking. We will have support teams at various locations and water and snack stations will be set up.

"Big Hearts Helping Small Minds" a M. L. P. Scholarship Banquet

Sun, Aug 12, 2018

This event will occur August 12th, 2018 at the Columbus Convention and Trade Center and is the sole fundraiser for the M. L. P. Scholarship. Donations support the scholarship.

Margaret L. Parker is an educator who loves children and works tirelessly to ensure children obtain the education they desire. We invite you to help make this a reality for many of the children in this community by making a donation. We have seen tremendous growth in the students that attend New Bethel Adventist Christian Academy academically, socially, physically, spiritually, behaviorally, and mentally as we focus on the development of the whole child.
