Crusader Comments – October 11-16, 2021

Hello fellow Crusaders!  

Our Fall Festival is scheduled for this Friday, October 15 from 5-7pm. This is a family event and will take place in the courtyard between the 100 and 200 and Administration buildings. Bring your lawn chairs and come and enjoy some outside fun with food, inflatables, a talent show and more. This is sponsored by the ECS PTF and is a fundraising event that helps supply funds to support needs in the classroom. A Volunteer/Service opportunities flyer will be coming home on Monday and should be returned by Wednesday. Later in the week a flyer with pricing for the food, inflatables and more will be sent out by text. Looking forward to seeing you on Friday.

Go Crusaders!

Have a great weekend, and make sure you are plugged into a local church body (Hebrews 10:24-25). If you do not have a local church that you currently attend, we invite you to visit us at Emmanuel Baptist Church at 9:15 for Sunday School and at 10:30 for worship.
