Our Cozy Christmas Success
Congratulations to our K-5 Sparks on a beautiful Christmas concert! Our families packed the gym and were treated to wonderful music, spirited skits, and a surprise visitor from the North Pole. The enthusiasm was palpable and the whole event was the perfect way to celebrate Christmas!
We are excited to share with you videos and photos from the concert. Click here to access the complete Google album.
