THANKSGIVING CHAPEL – We will have a combined chapel (elementary and secondary) on Friday, November 18th at 10:30 a.m. Every elementary class will be doing something special.
The secondary students will have a showcase of their classroom work during a reception from 9:30 – 10:25 a.m. in the foyer area of the church prior to the Thanksgiving chapel. This will be the secondary students’ contribution to the service. We would like to encourage all parents to enjoy the light refreshments and take a few minutes to look at the secondary students’ talents before chapel begins.
