This has been an amazing year with the Children’s Choir, and I am sad to see it come to a close. I want to say a huge thank-you to all of the parents for your continued support. I have never had to worry about who was covering dinner or getting robes and costumes ready because you have been so incredible. You even put up with (some even encouraged) my crazy ideas. I am deeply grateful for your love and support and for welcoming me into this family.

Above all I am grateful for the children who sang with the choir. This is truly an AMAZING group. Anywhere they go, love and joy follows. I am so proud of all of their hard work learning music and the Bible this year. Their sincere questions have challenged me to dig deeper in faith, and together we have grown closer to God.

Although this year is ending, I am filled with joy as I look to the future. I know that next year will hold just as many surprises and blessings. I will hold these families and this program in my prayers over the summer and wait with anticipation to see what God has in store for us next.

I pray that you go into the summer loving God with all your heart, your soul, your mind, and your strength, and resting in the assurance that there is a family waiting to see you again in the fall.
