But you’d be mistaken! You haven’t really heard the story…well, not the whole story anyway…not until you’ve heard Raad Tidings We Bring!….The Animals” Christmas Story.

NEW DISMISSAL PROCEDURE: The first few days of our new dismissal procedure seems to be going well. Please be patient with us as we tweak it to make it even better. COUPLE OF ITEMS TO REMEMBER – Please make sure you have your placard, with the number on it, visible in your vehicle so we can see it. Please make sure your pick up list is up-to-date, with everyone who may be picking your child up, to avoid delays.

A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to all our parents who provided food to be prepared for the Thanksgiving Luncheon. Also, we want to thank the MVCS Secondary Bible classes, along with the secondary teachers for preparing the food that was brought. It was such a delicious meal that was enjoyed by our entire faculty, staff, and students!

Don’t let this Christmas season overwhelm you. Don’t feel you have to do everything or go into debt just to impress other people. Focus instead on Jesus. Make this Christmas one of “exceedingly great joy!” Excerpt from Hope for Each Day by Billy Graham.
