Do you like to read books? Better yet - do you like to read to children? I am looking for people who would like to start a Reading program with Inspiring Hearts Academy, the school who meets on our campus two Friday mornings a month. Starting in January, 2019, Inspiring Hearts would deeply appreciate having some of our members come and read to their children. You would only be reading for about half an hour and  would be with another person - each one would read a book to a designated class. If this is something you would like to do, kindly contact me and we can set you up with the age group you would feel most comfortable reading to. This is a wonderful opportunity to get involved with this outstanding group of home-schooled children. They are eager to be read to and I really hope we can create this type of relationship with them.

Led by Deirdre Poyer, " Deep Blue: Learn and Serve!" teaches children about God and what is means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. This year the children are exploring Guatemala, Kenya, Alaska, and Armenia with their regular Deep Blue "guides" - Asia, Edgar, Kat, and Caleb - to see how they can work together for the benefit of God's kingdom here on Earth. Deep Blue meets on Sunday mornings in Room D of the Education Building at 9:30.
