$250,000 Matching Gift

Friends, we have a very special announcement. We have received a very unexpected gift from an anonymous donor. An incredibly generous donor has agreed to match all donations up to $250,000. That means every dollar donated will be DOUBLED. In other words, a $5 donation will become $10 and a $100 donation will become $200! We are so grateful to share this amazing opportunity and we're asking you to get involved. If you were planning to make a donation, now is the time. If you were planning on talking with a friend or relative about being part of this project, now is the time. Financial gifts are still coming in from our mailing campaign and now they also are being matched dollar for dollar. Spread the news that now is the best time to give to the KAES gym campaign!

100th Day of School

Last Tuesday KAES celebrated its 100th day of school. Each classroom celebrated in their own way, from aging to 100 or counting to 100 in every way imaginable. It was a great day and a great reason to celebrate.

KAES Kids Sabbath

This Sabbath is KAES Kids Sabbath at the Keene Church. Many of your children are participating in our church services. I invite you to join us in worship at 9:00am and 11:30am as we support these kids. We want to encourage them as they serve and share in God's work.
