SALT & LIGHT CHAPEL

Next Monday, January 29th, is our Salt & Light Chapel. Our guest comes at the specific request of many of our students who have taken part in the American Heritage Girls program we used to sponsor on campus. Bob Walter has been instrumental in speaking into the lives of our youth through training them in the High Adventure and Survivalist programs of the Boy Scouts of America, American Heritage Girls, as well as Trail Life USA programs. Please join us as we honor a Green Beret and Veteran of the United States Army, Bob Walter.

The class schedule will be adjusted to allow our guest more time in chapel. Please see the adjusted class schedule attached below. Parents are welcome to attend. Chapel begins promptly at 9:50 and will run until 10:50 with a Q&A segment at the end.
