You know what one of the most well-known aspects of our school is in the community?  It’s the Homecoming bonfire!  It’s visible.  It’s pretty amazing.  It generates lots of talk.  Neighbors come to watch it.  Certainly those who go through the intersection of Rapids Road and Waldo Blvd notice it while it’s burning.  Colleagues of mine have said that people in the community will often ask when the bonfire will happen each year.

You know what we’d like the community to know about most? It’s that there is the fire of the Holy Spirit here that kindles hearts through the use of God’s word.  We’d like that to be visible to our community.  We’d like that to be the “talk” about our school.  Maybe with a new building addition those who go through the intersection of Rapids Road and Waldo Blvd will be attracted to that even more.  Perhaps those of us who serve here will be asked about that more and more. 
What we know already is something we’d like to share.  That the fire of God’s love is what lies at the root of all we do at the corner of Rapids Road and Waldo Blvd.
It’s truly amazing!
“The Lord has done great things for us.  We are glad.”
Psalm 126:3
