It’s almost time for school again.
Pick up your backpack, paper and pen
Take the bus or walk a while,
And do remember to wear a smile
You have important knowledge too
And some of the others may look to you
So we pray that your light may glow
And show the path where they should go.
We’re proud of you and how you’ve grown.
We gladly claim you as our own.

In the beginning, in the end,
It all comes down to Jesus
In the beginning was the WORD,
And His name was Jesus.
What happens at the end of our earthly life
Depends on our faith in Jesus.
God gives us a life to think and pray
About what will happen on that day
He wants us all to choose His way
And live forever with Jesus.

each time. Please see Vicki TODAY to sign up for specific dates and
