7th and 8th Grade Retreat
Each year our 7th and 8th graders here at KAES have the opportunity to attend a leadership retreat. This brings our upper classmen together while giving direction and focus in becoming leaders for Jesus on our campus. This year we separated by grade allowing each class to spend the day at the camp working and growing together. They worked through challenge activities that helped them realize that they are stronger together and that with Christ all things are possible. They also had a ton of fun playing, eating and laughing together. Thank you to all the sponsors who gave of their time and sleep this week to make this great event happen.
Outdoor Bible Adventure Vespers
Next Saturday, August 29 at 6:45-7:45 pm is our Outdoor Bible Adventure Vespers. This will be a great time to connect with other KAES families. It will be held in the Keene Adventist Church upper parking lot. Bring your lawn chairs, chalk and ideas how to decorate your space depicting Bible scriptures. Let's see who can guess your illustrated story.
