Vision Event Invitation

We are extending an invitation to you to attend one of our Vision Events. What is a Vision Event? This is an opportunity to hear about the history of the school, understand the mission and vision of ACS, hear some of the initiatives of the school, and get a fuller picture of where the school is headed. This is not a fundraising event, but one where we share the awesome things God is doing and where He is leading the school!

We are excited to share this with all those who would attend, so please feel free to pass this invitation along to others in the ACS community (invite grandparents or even a neighbor who is interested in hearing more about Allendale Christian)!
