I’m so thankful to be a part of such a wonderful, caring, Christian community like Forcey Christian School. I loved seeing all of the students outside running today. Also, many parents were here to offer help and support. Thank you for working to gather donations for our fundraising efforts. God is merciful and always provides.

Yet he has not left himself without testimony: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy.” ~Acts 14:17

Have a great weekend.
