We concluded another season of training in our Lads to Leaders program by participating in the convention in Memphis. It was a great trip marked by excellent representation by the young people of Hillcrest.
Again this year, two of our young men led in the worship service where some 2,000 were gathered on Sunday morning. Alec Fehring and Kaden King led one of the songs and both did an excellent job.
It is so wonderful to see how our group progresses year after year. Thank you to all the parents and those who volunteer to help. We have an excellent thing going here, thanks to you!
