Principal Weekly Letter

Message from the Principal - January 13, 2020

Dear Parents,  

GOD wants us to be excited learners (disciples). Jesus came as the Master-Teacher to invite us to learn from Him and develop a relationship with His Abba-Father. He continues to present opportunities to us to expand our “knowledge” of our GOD. I chose and emphasized the word “knowledge” because in Biblical understanding, “knowledge” implies having a relationship with the one who teaches and reveals. Jesus is continuing to invite us to “come and see.”

In His Love,
Mother Elaine
