"We can be changed by what happens to us, but we must refuse to be reduced by it." - Maya Angelou

While we all acknowledge and grieve the tragedy that affects our neighbors in Christ in and around the Uvalde, Texas community, please also join in prayer as we continue to bind together keeping each other safe and strong.

Out Of Darkness Comes Light

God, make us brave for life:
Oh, braver than this and ever before.
Let us straighten after pain,
As a tree straightens after the rain,
Shining and lovely again.

God, make us brave for life;
As the blown grass lifts,
Let us rise too
From sorrow with quiet eyes,
Knowing Your way is wise and right.

God, make us brave.
Help us to keep our sight on You;
And vision to know
That out of darkness comes light.

HCCS Spring Concert


8th and Kinder buddies met for the last time for fun projects this year. They made keychains and bracelets to remember each other. It has been such a joy watching these kids grow not only individually but in their friendships as well.

Marching Band

Mr. K took some time to walk the kids through marching band techniques
and formations. The weather was great and the kids enjoyed it. Thank
you, Mr. K!
