Director's Section

My heart aches for all those in our world and in our nation that are effected by natural disasters and horrific acts of violence. I pray for families that have lost loved ones. May God give them strength and peace during this time. 

I pray that we can continue to teach our children that God is a good God. That He is with us ALWAYS.  May we love our families and love our neighbors.    

Sincerely,

Carrie Yeaman
