American Heritage Girls Troop sponsored by CLA . . .

We are still hoping to form an American Heritage Girls troop. AHG is a ministry for girls ages 5 to 18. We have a Charter Representative but several board member positions need to be filled before we can officially start the troop formation process. We are looking for individuals who are willing to make a 1- to 2-year commitment to help us get the troop off the ground. Would you prayerfully consider fulfilling one of these roles? 

  • Troop Coordinator leads the Troop Ministry Team by
  1. overseeing the general operation of the local Troop;
  2. Helping to recruit, select, and train all adult leadership;
  3. facilitating Troop Ministry Team Leaders’ meetings;
  4. serving as the liaison between AHG, Inc. and the Charter Representative;
  5. guiding the Troop towards its goals and accomplishing the mission of the American Heritage Girls.
  • Vice-Coordinator assists Coordinator with all responsibilities and is considered “Coordinator-in- training.” The actual roles performed shall be divided as spiritual gifts and personalities dictate.
  • Treasurer oversees Troop finances, helps to determine guidelines pertaining to Troop checking account, both acquiring and maintaining it. Helps to create a Troop budget.
  • Troop Shepherd is concerned about the “care and feeding” of the Troop members and looks over the “flock.” The Troop Shepherd cares for each AHG member, encouraging them in their spiritual walk. Will lead prayer before Ministry Team meetings and pray for the Troop. Will get to know each girl and volunteer and follow up on absent members.

Please contact Karin White at whitehakefish@gmail.com if you are interested in serving or have any questions.  Thanks!

June 2nd Golf Outing - No Golf Skills Required - Find a way to participate!

The 10th Annual CLA Golf Outing will be held on Friday, June 2nd, at Bluegrass Creek Golf Course in Minier.  Packets were sent home last week with all the details…. Get involved!!!

From the Principal's Desk . . .

In our staff devotions and prayer time, we have reflected on some passages in I Peter 3 and 4.  It is such a joy to meet daily with others who are taking very seriously the job and ministry of sharing Jesus with our children.  As we approach the end of our school year, here’s a reminder from I Peter 4:7-8. “The end of all things is near.  Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray.  Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.”  May the Lord speak to us, and show us what it means to love each other deeply!          

In Christ,

Mr. Horning
