We have started the season of Advent, which are the four Sundays and weeks of preparation for the celebration of the coming of Jesus. This is a great time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas, God sending us His Son, Jesus.
ADVENT SERVICE MARK YOUR CALENDAR!
All students are required to participate in our Advent Service, Thursday, Dec 19, from 6:30 – 8 PM. Students practice violin, praise dance, and choir together as a family, and this is our opportunity to minister as a family!
