January Newsletter

Dear Parents:   It is hard for Christians, whether they are adults or children, to remember that it is not the gifts under the tree that make Christmas so important.  If the presents were the only things we looked forward to, then when the presents were opened, Christmas would be over for us.   But […]

December Newsletter

Dear Parents: “It’s just not Christmas without Christ” is our theme for Advent 2018.   You wouldn’t have a party without friends, wrapping without a present, a cake without candles or a celebration without the birthday boy!   On December 25th we celebrate the birth of Christ: the day God entered his created world in the […]

April Newsletter

Dear Parents, At this time we turn our thoughts to Easter and the joy and the hope that it represents.   Without Easter, without the Resurrection, we would face a future of darkness rather than the promise of eternal life.   Easter is truly a time of celebration!   As we see signs of renewed life all around […]
