Inauguration Day is here — a fact that can be met with joy or disappointment depending on who you are. As Christians, how are we responding to the growing political tensions and approaching one of the most taboo topics of our time?

Participating in the Fine Arts may look different for students this school year, but the show must go on!

Edvardo Archer, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who recently spoke at CCA’s middle school chapel, shares five practical and healthy ways you can support, love, and lead those who are struggling mentally in 2021.
