8th Grade: A big THANK YOU to all of you who joined in and watched the Christmas Parade on Saturday and the Couthouse Choir Music on Sunday - it brings joy to others in our community! Let us continue to embrace this season of Advent by praising God for all the good things in our lives and remember the each day as I go into the world I am an
ambassador for Jesus Christ. I am taking an active part in bringing His love, forgiveness, and mercy to everyone I meet. I will praise God for what He has done, is doing, and what He is about to do, through me! I will remember the good I did yesterday. I will praise God for doing it with me, in me, and through me. I will think about the good I did today, and praise God for it. I will look throughout each day to see what I can praise God for.
