Metamorphosis
—from Association to Academy

Freely we have received, and freely we give. Developing capacities to their fullest, Gilead Academy educates students today for the world of tomorrow. Built on the solid foundation of the Bible and with a non-profit charter, we rest on God's providential care and leading. With a strong emphasis on music, health, and horticulture the Academy operates year round enabling a broad curriculum and resourceful programs. Metamorphosis continued…

What's Happening

Preparations are in full swing for our annual Passover Celebration. Golden brown crackers and personally tailored accommodations await. The todo list is shrinking yet, there’s still plenty to keep us busy as folks have already begun to arrive.

The fall and winter have brimmed with blessings. Walk-in cooler and shop renovations, kitchen and cafeteria facelifts, a wood-burning furnace system serving the central buildings, and new paved walkways for the dorm are ready. Early Christian Church History classes covered the Apostolic Church and development of the Papacy revealing key principles of truth. We're realizing the value in the counsel given to gobble up history lest we repeat it. God has blessed, as promised.

Please bring (or send) all the spring cheer you can! We need it. Temperatures are trendy well below normal and any help getting them above the expected high forties... Our warmth will have to come from within as we share in the joys of Christian fellowship, meat in due season, and an evening of music with the Northern Lights Steel Orchestra.

We long to see everyone again and will deeply miss those of you who won't be able to come. Know you are in our hearts and prayers.

Soul Refreshment

“There is a distinction between recreation and amusement. Recreation, when true to its name, re-creation, tends to strengthen and build up. Calling us aside from our ordinary cares and occupations, it affords refreshment for mind and body, and thus enables us to return with new vigor to the earnest work of life. Amusement, on the other hand, is sought for the sake of pleasure and is often carried to excess; it absorbs the energies that are required for useful work and thus proves a hindrance to life’s true success.”
– Education pg. 207; E. G. White

“Recreation and amusement, why are they not the same? One has a means to an end. What is amusement? Amusement has no limit. Recreation is re-creation because you have all that fresh air in your lungs and brain cells and you feel good. Recreation tends to strengthen and upbuild.”

M.T. Jordan
