Thank you for your support of the Parable of the Talents. Thirty eight children showcased their Talents and raised more than $900 to support Project Hope, our 2018 service project to build a clean water well in a village outside of Monrovia, Liberia. This will be the ongoing benefactor of all our 2018
fundraising activities. If your child has not had a chance to get involved in the Student Challenge for Project Hope and would like to, please email

Booths and activities open at 5:00pm and run continuously through 7:00pm. The potluck buffet will open at 5:30. Come when you can, as this is an informal “walk-though” event where kids will get the opportunity to create and experience their way through Holy Week.
