VERSE OF THE MONTH
PARENTS IN PRAYER
The monthly prayer focus for November is “choices.”

Pray for the day-to-day choices and the moment-to-moment decisions our students will make. The importance of these cannot be overestimated.

Pray to loosen the burden of running their own lives, our own lives, and that God may do the work He desires through each of us.
