Great God, Great School, Great Start!

Starting the Race…

IMG_5989is our class of 2027! This wonderful group of youngsters just completed their Kindergarten year and celebrated their accomplishments with a program entitled, “I Am a Promise” by Bill and Gloria Gaither. The play is based on Jeremiah 29:11 which states, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declared the LORD. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you plans to give you hope and a future.” The entire evening revolved around the many things these young children learned in school this year: discovering a life of obedience, the possibilities before them in Christ. His promise for their future…

The evening concluded with a reception hosted by HCS’ First Grade parents. On display at the reception were pictures of the Kindergartners holding signs of what they would like to be when they grow up. The reception was a beautiful illustration of transformation into a new creation when one accepts Christ as Savior. Our class of 2027 has started the race well.
