Director's Note

In a recent podcast, John Ortberg said, "The magic of life...the deep glue that holds relationships together...the foundation of all community is just serving." This resonated with me. I have the privilege of an up close look at what happens when we care and serve together -- relationships built, burdens eased and friendships formed. I continue to be thankful to link arms with each of you as we link arms in our community. If you are interested in listening to the entire podcast click here. It's about 13 minutes and definitely worth the time.

In the meantime, please plan to join us at CAST Blast on May 25th (details below). I truly believe it will be an evening where we will see the deep glue and the foundation of our community! I'm already looking forward to being together with you then!

With gratitude,

Sonja White

Executive Director

This is why, each of our CAST groups end their school year with a PIZZA PARTY!
