Isaiah Inspires Students

Christian School Uses Scripture For Inspiration In

Fundraising Efforts To Build A Chapel

ERWIN—They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not be faint. Inspired by Isaiah 40:31, students, faculty and parents of one area Christian school are taking the verse from the Old Testament to heart and putting it to practice for a worthy cause. Cape Fear Christian Academy desires to build a campus chapel to hold their weekly chapel services.

On May 14, 2011, Cape Fear Christian Academy, located on Hwy. 421 between Erwin and Buies Creek, will host the Isaiah 40:31 Challenge. The event will be one of the most important fundraisers the school has launched to date with approximately 300 students currently preparing for a 5k run, 1-mile fun runs, a walkathon and 100-yard dashes. Students have been raising donations for sponsorship and will take to the soccer field on the day of the event.


Cape Fear Christian Academy, found in 1969, is the oldest private school in Harnett County. It is a non-denominational Christian school that was founded by a small group of local businessmen that desired to see children in the community offered an opportunity for a college-preparatory curriculum along with Christ-centered values that incorporate Bible study and a nurturing atmosphere in which to learn. The first graduating class walked across the stage to receive their diplomas in 1976.


The school consists of grades K-12 and also has preschool, as well. CFCA has a high retention rate with a number of the students entering early on in their childhood and attending through high school until graduation.


CFCA also has a considerable number of students proceed to area colleges and universities such as UNC Chapel Hill, North Carolina State University, Wake Forest University, Campbell University, North Carolina A&T, East Carolina University, Shaw University, Barton College and more. 


Students continue to attend Wednesday morning chapel services each week in the school gymnasium until sufficient funds have been raised to build a suitable chapel on the property.
