Are you ready?!?!

        Something that we began late in the summer that has been on a short hiatus is our Bible Drills.  Tomorrow, October 16th  they are back.  So don't be late because right after our donut breakfast we will test to see how fast your fingers are at locating several Bible verses.  Tomorrow's Bible drill verses are all on a common theme . . . so we will have two prizes (as long as they don't get eaten before morning).  One prize for the fastest fingers and one for whomever can identify the theme.  We hope to see you tomorrow!!!

T.J. is speechless

T.J. - this is for you.  Of course, you have to read this whole post out loud to everyone around you tonight.  (Just kidding.)  We are praying for a speedy recovery and glad to hear the surgery went well.  We are a little concerned, we heard they removed a portion of your brain - the only problem, we're not sure which part----could it be memory well we can't remember.

We will miss you and will continue to pray for ya!
Uphold 56 class!
