One of the Bible stories we studied this past month was Moses and the bronze serpent. This true story has a very clear New Testament message. The children of Israel were delivered from slavery and were provided with Manna to sustain them on their journey through the wilderness to the Promised Land.

We are becoming more fluent in our reading and decoding skills as we continually master our vowel sounds, consonant blends, consonant digraphs and vocabulary words.
We learned the 5 parts of a letter (heading, greeting, body, closing, and signature) and have been writing letters to our friends.
Our K-4 Choir was honored to sing at the Trees and Treasures Festival at the Boone County Hospital on Saturday, November 16. We are so grateful to Mrs. Holbrook, who has for years accompanied our choir. She is such a blessing to us! It is a true joy to share the message of our Savior, Jesus Christ with those in our Boone community.
Our K-4 choir will also have the opportunity to sing on December 7th at 12:00 at the Boone High School commons for the “Festival of Hope.” We were also asked to be a part of the Habitat for Humanity Nativity Festival at the First United Methodist Church on December 8th beginning at 3:00 pm, with the choir concert at 4:00 pm. We would love for you to join us for these special concerts.
Advent Joy – Prepare Ye, Prepare Ye to celebrate the Savior’s birth!
