A Warm Welcome

I hope you have had a good summer and found a way to relax, spend time as a family and connect more deeply with God.  Believe it or not, it is time for the school year to begin.  I appreciate all of the warmth that has been extended to me during this transition and am looking forward to serving with you all! 

The following was from a parent in response to the email I sent out earlier this summer:

“I love times of change and transition like this as we often see God working to refresh us, give us broadened vision, renew us and awake us all in areas we may have become apathetic after a while.”  Though few of us will admit to “loving” change and transition, we know that God seldom has us stay where we are (Abraham, Moses, Joseph, Ruth, Mary, Paul…).  However, be assured that with this transition I am not looking at making big, broad changes, but am hopeful that my experiences will add to the foundation that has been built over the past 40 years. Please stop in to say "hi", I look forward to getting to know each and every family at Bethany Academy



PS. I love having the building full of students again. It has been awfully quiet over the summer!
