Empowered To Connect Conference
Kirk Day School and One Heart Ministries is pleased to host the Empowered to Connect Conference on April 7 & 8, 9:00am-5:00pm at the Kirk of the Hills. This two-day conference is designed to help adoptive and foster parents, ministry leaders and professionals better understand how to connect with “children from hard places” in order to help them heal and become all that God desires for them to be.
The conference features David Cross, Mandy Howard, Daren Jones, Dan and Terri Coley, Ryan and Kayla North, Casey Call, and Cindy Lee and is ideal for adoptive and foster parents, those considering adoption or foster care and those who are serving and supporting others, including social workers, agency professionals, church staff and ministry leaders, counselors, therapists and others.
Veterans Day Chapel
KDS students observed Veterans Day with a special chapel service honoring our United States veterans and thanking them for the sacrifices they have made to preserve our freedom. Many veterans from peacetime as well as those who have served in conflicts from World War II to the present joined us for a parade of veterans, a very special worship service, and a reception hosted by our fifth grade students.
