The Scholastic Book Fair will be here from February 19 – 24, 2014.  I will need parent volunteers to help prepare decorations, set up/take down and run the book fair. The book fair has been a successful fundraiser for our school library over the past few years, last year we raised over $1700! That success would be impossible without our volunteers.  If you are interested in helping please email Katie Crews and let me know how/when you would like to help. Thank you!


Chaplain’s Message

“Let all that I am praise the LORD; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!” (Psalms 103:1-5 NLT)

How has God blessed you today? Why not take some time today to praise God for His love and blessings in your life!

Pastor Brent
