Weekly Prayer Meetings
Please join us every Friday morning, rain or shine, from 8:30-9:30 a.m. in the PTA office in the annex. This is a time for all parents and staff from any grade level to gather and pray for the various needs of CAJ. It is led by PTA's Spiritual Life Coordinator. You can pray in any language you'd like. This is a great way to meet new friends, understand the needs of the campus, and cover them in prayer together.
Monthly Prayer Meetings
These meetings are referred to as PIP, or Parents in Prayer, and they meet in the PTA office, Room 12 in the annex. They are divided by grade level and are led by parent volunteers from each class. This is another great way to make new friends and to pray specifically for your child's classroom needs. You will get to pray for each child and teacher by name and lift up requests that are unique to that class. The schedule for the prayer meetings can be found on the CAJ prayer meetings calendar.
Prayer Guides
Each September the PTA produces bookmarks that can be used as prayer guides. These bookmarks list the names of all the students in each grade. The CAJ Web site also has a monthly prayer guide that gives a specific prayer request for CAJ for each day of the month. A printed copy of this prayer guide is also available that includes the names of all the staff to guide you in praying for them as well. Bookmarks and printed prayer guides are handed out at the beginning of the school year or you can pick one up in the business office.
Scripture Memory Program
Each summer students in grades 4-12 are encouraged to memorize Scripture. The students recite their verses in September to volunteer parents. In 2021 the financial reward will be capped at ¥5,000 for reciting the first two chapters of the book of James. (Students reciting only James chapter 1 will receive ¥2500.) If you are interested in being a listener, please let us know by sending an e-mail to or by filling out a PTA volunteer form.
Tithing for Summer Missions
The PTA is very excited to join with our students as they learn to personally reach out to others around the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The PTA gives 10% of the profits of Thrift Shop towards this end. Students are encouraged to submit an application to the PTA for support towards their mission trip/project. Students can pick up an application from the CAJ registrar.
