HAPPY JULY!
We are praying for you and your family to have a safe and happy Fourth of July! We are so thankful for those who have sacrificed much or all to maintain our freedom.

During this time, we are reminded of the freedom from sin we have through the sacrificial, substitutionary death of Jesus Christ, satisfying the debt we owed to God because of our sin. We are no longer slaves, but are children of God! Praise Him!
NO LUNCH CREW THIS WEEK!
MERGE (CHECK IT OUT, OLDER STUDENTS!)
Each year, we take a day trip to welcome our incoming 7th graders. We like to end the day with a SURPRISE party in the gym! But in order for that to be a success, it depends on our current students to show up en masse to welcome them back (and pelt with dodge balls....just kidding...but for real...).

So, please encourage your student to join us on July 8 @ 6:30 for cake and fun!!!
BACK-2-SCHOOL RETREAT 2019
I know the last thing you want to think about is the end of summer, but it will be here before you know it! Each year, we like to take a couple of days and spend with our students to encourage them as they begin the school year.

This year, we will again be going to Dorroh Lake . The dates are August 16–17 . We will leave on Friday afternoon around 5pm, and will return on Saturday night around 9:30pm.

CLICK HERE to register! Take advantage of the Early Bird special to save $10! There are no multi-student discounts for this event, but we can provide scholarships if necessary.
I am excited to announce that we are planning another trip to Quito, Ecuador for Spring Break 2020 (March 8–14) !!! I already have the airline tickets reserved, and I am coordinating with the missionary there to determine specifics for ministry projects.

Right now, I am unsure of a total cost, but it will be comparable to the overall total cost from last year, and will fall somewhere between $1,600 and $1,800 per person before any scholarships/assistance are applied. While there will be some financial assistance available, but it will more than likely be less than for our previous trip.

The trip is open to 9th graders through college students . Parents are welcome to join us as well, and we will probably have a slightly different price point for them (due to some financial assistance being designated specifically for students).

There will be an interest meeting after the summer is over (it's a CRAZY summer!), but I wanted to go ahead and get the word out so families can begin financial planning!
