Annual Church Visits
This is always a fun time of year when we get to visit local churches. Our intention is to expose our children to community churches that could potentially become their families’ “church home”. We visit different churches each year. This year we visited the 1st Nazarene, Living Word, Ambassador Christian, Zion Lutheran, and the 1st Baptist churches.

2017 Christmas Program
We had a wonderful night! Over 300 people were in attendance at this years program. The children worked so hard and everything turned out wonderful. Thank you to all the volunteers that came to helps us and to Pastor Steve Suttles with the Church of the Nazarene for delivering a message to the children and their families about God’s love and sacrifice for each of us. Hopefully hearts were touched
Kicking off a new school year!
Our annual skating party was a blast! We celebrate the year and the children’s hard work on their academic efforts. This year Skate City donated a soda pop for every child who attended. We thank them for their generosity!
Holy Week at Cherry Street
The week leading up to Easter is a special time at Cherry Street! During Holy Week, our children learn about Jesus’ amazing gift to each one of us. Our bible teachers prepared hands on lessons for the children to learn of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, his death, and his resurrection.
The children receive Easter baskets as part of the Holy Week celebration.
Happy Valentines Day!
The new revised standard version of the Bible references Love 317 times in the Old Testament and 221 times in the New Testament. Let’s remember to look to His word, for guidance and understanding. Please know that you are loved! He loves us no matter where we are in our walk with Christ. First Corinthians 12:4-8 “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
We are always looking for volunteers to help in our Eden Garden. If gardening feeds your soul, please contact our administrative office at 620-431-2161 to let us know how you can help.
Books, books, and more books!
Each of our children set a reading goal! At our West building (kids 3rd-5th grade) they set a semester goal. We had 100% of the children meet their goal!! Keep up the good work Ms. Natalie’s kids! Please consider volunteering your time to work with our young readers on Mondays and Tuesdays at Cherry Street East (K-2nd grade). Learning to read is the key to a bright future!
