1 Chronicles 16 says:
31 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let them say among the nations, "The LORD reigns!"
32 Let the sea resound, and all that is in it;
let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them!
33 Then the trees of the forest will sing,
they will sing for joy before the LORD,
for he comes to judge the earth.
34 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
his love endures forever.
35 Cry out, "Save us, O God our Savior;
gather us and deliver us from the nations,
that we may give thanks to your holy name,
that we may glory in your praise."
We pray that this holiday season will truly be one of thanksgiving for you and your family.

22 Students enjoyed this break from the traditional classroom to see, experience, learn, and enjoy this part of our nation that is so rich in American history. During their time in St. Augustine, the students visited many educational and historical sites, as well as a few fun stops along the way.
The first stop on the tour was at the St. Augustine Visitor Information Center where students were greeted by a tour guide who accompanied them for the next couple of days. While at the VIC, students were able to see a building material called “coquina” which was first used to build the National Landmark, Castillo de San Marco. The students then toured many other sites which included: Memorial Presbyterian Church, Flagler College, formerly, The Ponce de Leon Hotel, built by Henry Flagler, Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, St. Augustine Lighthouse, The Oldest House, The Spanish Military Hospital, Castillo de San Marco, Mission of Nombre de Dios, the City Gates, a trolley tour of the city, and an evening walking tour.
The students really embraced this educational opportunity and “soaked” in so much information. They were so thankful for this opportunity.
