CAP (Covenant Assistant Program) News:  On behalf of the CAP Program and the parents that benefit from it, THANKS to our Church Family for your generosity at the Auction held the night of the Church Picnic.  As previously decided by the Deacons, the funds raised at the ‘postponed 2020 Auction’ would be allocated to those families that qualified as of 12/31/20.  Over $13,000.00 was raised; therefore, an additional $315.00/student was allocated.  Total per student allocated for the 2020-2021 school year was $1,245.00!
