PreK - 5th Grade: Sallie Ellis - Today, your child will learn about Sallie Ellis. Ellis suffered a great deal of tragedy in her lifetime, but was able to channel her faith to overcome all the obstacles put in her way. By the end of her life, she had written over a thousand letters and sent over 200 sermons, books and religious resources, essentially starting the Church of the Larger Fellowship. Today is also the first day your child will be able to earn a principle bead for their name badge. Look below to see what additional activities your child participated in...
