"For behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land." Song of Solomon 2:11 -12
Most of our CUW students are off this week on spring break to get refreshed and renewed by either going home, serving on a mission trip, or taking a needed break. The weather is also starting to turn into spring, bringing the feeling of renewal. Spring also means the return of our perennial flowers and a time to reconnect with friends. We have many events where former classmates will be able to connect with each other to renew and refresh their friendships. There will also be opportunities for you to help encourage new graduates or potential families in their new beginnings. Please review the information below and email me with ideas of how we can serve you.
