We recognize that we are a team to help each child be all that God would have them be. We realize how important it is that we continue to communicate with each other. So please be sure to attend. Together lets continue to encourage our children as they discover their gifts and learn to use them to serve their God by caring for God’s creation and for their fellow human being.
