If you plan to come and enjoy, please bring enough food for your family and one more person, in order to provide ample food for our guests. We need our member’s help. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------We are so happy to announce that Angela Nordberg will be the teacher's assistant at R.A.P.S. for the 2009/2010 school year.

And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.� --Joshua 24:15 (NKJV)
