We will be holding our first virtual Donuts for Dads of the 2020/2021 school year this Friday, September 4th from 7:30 – 8:00 a.m. Since we are not able to have the face-to-face fellowship time like we did when we were in person, over the next couple of months we are going to have some dads speak to the group so you can get to know them. This week’s presenter is going to be Shane Moore, fellow Men of GRACE and dad to 3 kids (Ellie – 7th, Reese – 5th, Shane Jr. – 1st). Come hear what God has laid on Shane’s heart to share with the group and get to know a fellow GRACE dad.

NEW STAFF SPOTLIGHT
Meet Mrs. Christina Kern, 2nd grade teacher!
"Hello! My name is Christina Kern! When I am not teaching, I love visiting new national parks with my husband, playing with my ten month old German Shepard named Mack, or reading a good book at a coffee shop! My favorite Scripture verse: "He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end." - Ecclesiastes 3:11. I am a 2011 GRACE alumni and I am so excited to be back in the place that has shaped me so much! God greatly uses this school!"
