Happy Thanksgiving! We are so thankful that your family is a part of our community. Thank you for the gift of your children! We pray that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Enjoy your break and we will see you back on Monday, November 29th.
Season of Advent Sunday, is the First Sunday of Advent. There are many wonderful traditions during advent. Lighting the candles on the Advent wreath and opening one door at a time on the Advent calendar. Each of these experiences calls us to stop and focus on what is coming, Jesus. During Advent we prepare our heart for Jesus. At assembly this morning, we shared ways we can prepare our hearts. How can you create opportunities for your family to prepare their hearts?
