Kindergarten – 4th Grade

SPRING   MUSICAL

April 19th

O CHICKEN OF LITTLE FAITH

Sometimes fears and anxieties can make us feel like the sky is falling!  On her last day on the farm, Faith falls into an afternoon nap after a busy day of playing, and into a dream where she thinks she has fallen asleep at night and she has forgotten to lock her grandma’s chickens safely in the coop.   In a panic, she looks for them, and quickly finds them!  Now wearing party hats; the sheep are running all over the country side.  Faith endures many obstacles (and many chicken jokes) as she tries to get them back to the safety of “home”.   Faith learns to lean on God to help her face her fears and anxieties to trust Him in all things.    Show times are on Thursday, April 19th in the Big Gym at 1:15 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

WE HOPE YOU WILL COME JOIN US!


SPECIAL PERSONS DAY:  Special Persons include: grandparents, parents, or other adult relatives or friends that have a special place in the hearts of our students.   Our PK4 – 8th students are really looking forward to enjoying our annual Special Persons Day on Friday, April 20th.  Special Persons day will begin with an arrival time of 8:15 a.m.  A special chapel worship led by Pastor Rethwisch will begin at 8:40 a.m. with classroom visits, special planned activities, a fabulous lunch, and a closing assembly planned to make the day extra special.
