Foster your child’s natural curiosity, creativity, and intelligence through:
A Safe Learning Environment – focusing on each child as a unique individual.
A Dual-Language Program – because children who learn more than one language at an early age have increased learning capacity and do better in school long term.
Plenty of Outdoor Play – including gardening, outdoor activities, and a playground that sparks each child’s imagination.
Strong Community Connections – including field trips into the village and bringing folks from the village to the daycare to enrich each child’s learning.

“Sometimes you’re so hungry the only way to be fed is to fast.” – Susan Gregory
Are you hungry for a more intimate and authentic relationship with God? Are you looking for answers to prayer? Are you wrestling with deep questions or experiencing great trials? Do you want to live a Christ-centered life that is a positive witness to the world? Then plan on participating in this mini-course on fasting.
We’ll meet three Sunday afternoons (1/27, 2/3, and 2/10) from 4 to 5 pm at the church.
Here’s a rough outline:
Week 1: Why Do We Fast? Exploring fasting in the Bible; Is fasting for me?
Week 2: How Should We Fast? Choosing the best fast for the need; How do I prepare?
Week 3: Keeping the Fast Setting goals for the fast; What spiritual disciplines should I practice?
We’ll complete this mini-course before Ash Wednesday so that we might all take on fasting during Lent.
