We took the students sliding at Theodore Worth Park and they had a blast on Friday 1/13 as part of our Fun Fridays. Weather was perfect. Snow was great and everyone had a wonderful time.
Each day in chapel the kids join in prayer for each of their families’ communities and Hospitality House based on John 15:7.
Here are some of our students enjoying their Loaves and Fishes bag dinners. They are great. And they really enjoy it every week!
