About Seventh-day Adventists
The Seventh-day Adventist Church is a mainstream Protestant church with approximately 19 million members worldwide, including more than one million members in North America. The Seventh-day Adventist Church seeks to enhance quality of life for people everywhere and to let people know that Jesus is coming again soon.
Adventists believe a Trinity of three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father's will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people of the world and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone.
When He returned to heaven following the resurrection, Jesus left the Holy Spirit to serve as our Comforter and Counselor. He promised to return to earth a second time to complete His plan of salvation and take His people to heaven. Adventists are among the believers who look forward to that day.
Adventists believe that God is concerned with the quality of human life, and that everything—the way we live, eat, speak, think, treat each other, and care for the world around us—is part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.
Eagle Seventh-day Adventist Church
In the late 1960’s the then 100 members of the Eagle church began to plan for a new church. Land was acquired on West State Street (Highway 44) where the church was built and became a blessed reality. The first meeting was held in December 1972. Then, within a few years, with the blessing of the Lord, a school was built. Later, the members saw a need for a gym which was built in a few years. The school currently houses a kitchen, library, Pathfinder classroom, Preschool, Kindergarten and Grades 1-8 classrooms.
It has now been over 100 years since the Eagle Church first began and many have gone out from our Eagle church as workers for the Lord. Some as missionaries to foreign fields, some as medical workers, teachers, etc. But many more have served as workers in the more common vocations of life in the home fields. We would like to pay tribute to all who have been, and are, members of the Eagle SDA church. Do come and visit us at 538 West State Street in Eagle, Idaho! You are MOST welcome!

Principal/Teacher Upper Grades - Debbie Messecar
Debbie Messecar grew up going to this school my first 8 academic years. Later I came back as a teacher’s aide. When I became an “empty nester “ I went to Boise State University to become an Elementary Education/Special Education teacher. My first 3 years of teaching was in Special Education in a small village on the Bering Sea in Alaska (a bucket wish thing). I then moved back to the Boise area, which has always been home to me, and taught Special Education in the Public Schools in West Ada & Nampa School Districts. My original plan for teaching was to come back to EACS to teach and God granted that wish. I am blessed to be working in this school with a wonderful staff & great students & their families.
Teacher, Anita Jean Brown Grades 1-4
I am an Idaho native. I was born and raised in the treasure valley and graduated from the eighth grade from Eagle SDA Christian School in 1980. I will be coming to you most recently from Santa Fe New Mexico where I have been the head teacher of a one room school for the past two years. I have also taught in Ohio, Arizona, Idaho, Oregon and Washington in my career. I have served in many capacities and have several certifications to help each of my students grow in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man. I have an Associate's degree from Walla Walla College in Early Childhood Education and two Bachelor of Arts degrees from Boise State University, one in Elementary Education and one in Special Education. My most recent degree is a Master's degree in Teacher Leadership and Autism. My NAD professional certificate also includes additional endorsements as a Special Education Specialist, as well as Secondary History and English. Along with Junior Academy, or middle school, certifications in; Fine Arts, General Science, Health and PE, History and Math. When I'm not in the classroom I love, serving others, spending time with my kids and grandkids, in nature and crocheting or reading good books. My number one goal is to make Jesus look good to you and your children as we work together to help them be their best in Him. I recently read a book entitled, "Jesus in Jeans", it portrayed a modern version of the Man from Galilee going about doing good among ordinary people like us. It is my goal to emulate Him and encourage our students to do so as well.
