What beautiful weather we have had this week. We are blessed to finally see fall!
We continue to pray for everyone impacted by the hurricane. Hope for comfort, peace and restoration are in our daily thoughts.
Our 4’s and TK students enjoyed a field trip to Powell Drive Park this week for an Investigating Insects program. They had so much fun learning about God’s little creatures and playing outside in God’s masterpiece; nature!
