Thoughtful Hours

It would be well for us to spend a thoughtful hour each day in contemplation of the life of Christ. We should take it point by point and let the imagination grasp each scene, especially the closing ones.--The Desire of Ages, p. 83 (1898).


Christ and Him crucified should be the theme of contemplation, of conversation, and of our most joyful emotion.--Steps to Christ, pp. 103, 104 (1892).

Jail Referendum PAC

A small group of parents and church members met Friday afternoon to form a Political Action Committee (PAC) for the purpose of collecting signatures to bring the Wexford County jail to a public vote. We have approximately one month to get about 2500 signatures needed to put it on the ballot! We believe that God is guiding this endeavor, and He is able. Please stay tuned for more information on how you can be involved! Prayers needed!

Spring Break

We only have four more days of school until Spring Break, which starts this Thursday after school. School will resume at normal time on Monday, April 13, 2015. We pray you have a blessed and refreshing time at home or away!

April Calendar
