It's the Most Wonderful (Event) of the Year!
Or, at least one of them! This Saturday night will be our third annual Christmas party together in the youth room. The festivities will begin at 6:30am and finish around 10pm. The night will include gifts, games, ugly sweaters, a photo booth, story time, and a full meal provided by Mrs. Hoffer and team. All youth and their friends are invited to join! Please have each bring a wrapped $5 gift and wear their best ugly sweater. It's going to be a great night!

Coach and Brock share their "Christmas Story"
This past Sabbath, we got to hear the amazing journey of Bob Walker and his grandson Brock. Coach Walker has coached at Mesa Grande Academy since 2003, the year before his grandson Brock was born. Two weeks after his birth, Brock developed several health challenges, included cerebral palsy, yet he has inspired joy and hope into the lives of his family and friends, including his loving grandpa. Thank you for sharing your story with us, Coach and Brock!
