Coffee Talk Zoom Meeting

Good Morning Monday!!


Thank You
With KPG Summer Camp in full swing, the KPG Staff came in this morning to the most wonderful greeting.

Big kudos to the “Cheer Fairies” who surprised the KPG Staff by spreading their cheer and sending love to our Staff.

Like a warm hug, these greetings are always a welcome sight. But during these times of COVID continuing well past what we ever expected, it’s especially wonderful to receive the affirmation that our teachers efforts are truly appreciated. I know the smiles in the rooms will be contagious today.
YOU ROCK … Whoever you are!!!

NEIGHBORHOOD SUMMER VBS

A special thanks goes out to these wonderful volunteers who have opened their homes and donated their time, talent and energy to host VBS throughout the city this summer.  Thank you for taking the time to invest in the lives of families in your circle of influence and giving them the opportunity to learn about the goodness of our God.

PROGRESS!!!
Center Of Grace

Love the smell of fresh paint.  So clean and inviting. Look how nice everything is looking.  The space is taking on a whole new look of it’s own.   With the smell of fresh paint in the air the renovation is rolling along.  Speaking of ROLL …  we’re ready to rooollll out the new carpet! (little cheese here – roll – get it? sigh  indulge me please!)

… that’s what’s on the agenda for next week – NEW CARPET.
The conversion is almost complete. Can’t wait to see the finished project.  Luckily, we won’t be waiting long!
