|A question for you!
The question we raise to you today is, 'Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal savior?' Why not make this year a time of rejoicing by receiving our Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son; that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Why not take God at his word, and accept him today.
Have a great year 2002.

Reflections and Look & Live contain the seeds that you need to assure you of a place in Heaven.
I pray that anyone who watches Reflections and Look & Live would take each of the messages to heart.
| Girl's & Boys Basketball against Baptist Village
1/20/02 A great crowd turned out last night to watch the girl's and boy's basketball games with Baptist Village.
Our teams played very hard. With our small school, we were undermanned and both games ended on the losing side.
The Christ-like testimony of our Academy teams is commendable. It's always nice to win. But it takes a special group to be gracious in losing.
Keep your testimony. Thank you for a hard fought game.
| A great year 2002

It started out with the girl's game. Our girls played very well. But in the end, BBA played a very hard game.
FBCA girls can build on the good points. It was a hard fought battle. They only lost by 2 points.
The FBCA boys did better. It was a nip and tuck game going into the final 6 minutes. The FBCA boys won the game.
It was a great game. The crowd from both schools cheered on their respective teams.
BBA always bring along a great crowd. Thanks to both schools for a great night.
In this Christmas season, please remember that Jesus is the reason for the season.
Praise God for all of his many blessing that he has given us.
