Thank you so much for your ongoing prayers for Daniel Giffin and his family!
Daniel has been back at school for a couple of weeks following his radiation treatment and has his follow up MRI next Monday, May 6 to see if it worked. Please continue to pray that the MRI will show he does not have any new cancer!
Below are some other specific ways we can continue help:
GIFT CARDS – These will continue to be collected for them at the front desk.
GOFUNDME – Financial help for medical and related expenses.
Thank you for your prayers for Schafer as he continues to recover from his illness!
7:45 – 8:15 in the Chapel
“There has never been a spiritual awakening in any country or locality that did not begin in united prayer.”—A. T. Pierson
Prayer is the most essential work of our ministry and fruitfulness to God. Come join us as we praise God for His excellence and ask for His mighty hand to lead this school and change hearts for all of eternity. Without prayer, our work is arrogant and will only bear bad fruit (John 15:5). Let us humbly and diligently seek and come together in one accord and do the greatest thing we can do––pray.

Hello upcoming 6th grader parents,
Yesterday we hosted an introduction to 6th grade meeting. I know that a number of our families were unable to attend so I have attached the meeting’s agenda. One key issue that was brought up was the timing of when we reveal which 6th grade section your student will be in. Again, we have two 6th grade sections, led by Kim Hoekert and Kari McCabe. In the past, we sent an email before the end school ended informing families which teacher they had. However, last year this caused some drama amongst the students. In order to prevent that, we have decided to postpone announcing which teachers your student will have until after school is let out. If you have further questions regarding this or any other general 6th grade questions, please let me know.
