In October 2004, we officially began a relationship with Cherrydale Elementary School that has blossomed into a warm partnership. With the permission of Scarlet Black, the school principal, and the blessing of many parents, we were afforded the privilege to serve the students and families of CES.  Under the school's new principal, Debra Johnson (2015), the friendship is continuing.  

Each Wednesday (from September - March) after transporting the students to our church toward the end of the school day, we divide into classes and spend about one hour in Bible class activities, have a tasty snack, and then work away at homework until about 4:30.

Classes are identified by either academic grade and/or gender. The leadership team in each class consists of a teacher, an assistant teacher, and other helpers. The teacher coordinates the involvement of the leadership team in the singing, lessons, activities, etc.
