CHRISTMAS QUILT EVENT
We had a huge turn out for our Christmas Quilt event last Friday evening… Thank you for coming! Our students did a wonderful job with their songs and the play, and we are so very proud of all of them. We really appreciate all of those who donated cookies for the fellowship time, and those who gave in the offering to bless the teachers & staff. If you were not able to attend, and would still like to give a gift toward the teachers’ Christmas bonus, you can do that through this Friday, December 14th. You can drop your gift off at the school office or donate online at: https://www.acatulsa.org/contact/Invest-aca - look for the “Donate” button.
