Please be in prayer for our upper school art teacher, Jackie Kirsche.  She is experiencing a recurrence of her ovarian cancer and will be beginning treatment next week on April 20th.  Prayers for the the lack of complications and the effectiveness of the treatment are much appreciated.  Jackie will be continuing to work during this time hoping to only miss as treatment days require.  Thank you for remembering Jackie, her husband Kevin and children Berkley (class of 2013), Sierra (class of 2016) and Hadley (class of 2018) with your prayers during this time.

Please be in prayer for Konda Johnson (Grace - 10th, Hollan - Class of 2019) as she walks through the next stage of her journey with recurrent metastatic cholangiocarcinoma cancer.  She is beginning a new treatment in the form of a pill that has recently been approved and will be closely monitored as treatment progresses.  It is called targeted therapy which targets only the cancer and there is great hope that this will be successful.  Prayers are requested and greatly appreciated for Konda and her family as she faithfully continues this journey.     

Prayer requests are included here at the request, or with the permission of the family.
