HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIDAY ADDITION!

The brilliance of God...is everywhere...the stark whites and crispy blues of winter; the autumn orange-reds and golden hues of fall; the royal purples and sunshine yellows that announce spring; and the multi-luscious greens and the shimmering beige sands of summer.  Each season magnifies His brilliance, trumpets His majesty. He gave us the ability to rest in His almighty arms, as He fills us...whispering to us of ‘plans that I have for you...plans of a hope and a future...’ so when He sets us down, a fraction of this brilliance fires us from within to hit the ground running, aiming to do His will...aiming to run another year... Happy NEW YEAR FA families and students...here’s to FADE, more of Him, more of His brilliance in our lives. And here’s to running with you...in the glory of that brilliance!

Thank you!

We as a board would like to thank all the families of Friday Addition for the opportunity we have to interact with their children. What a blessing to see the excited faces coming in on a Friday morning. We have all been touched by the gracious attitudes of the students. Their enjoyment pushes us to do our very best as we serve you. The Lord has blessed us with a great group of teachers who adore their subject and your children. We are thankful for them and their passion. This program would not be successful without the Lord blessing us with great teachers and supportive families. As we approach this coming season, we would like you all to know that we appreciate you and praise the Lord for His grace to us!

FRIDAY ADDITION 2010 ~ 2011

Friday Addition opened its doors this Wednesday, September 8th, with a TEAM - BUILDING DAY. Two days before classes officially began, returning students, new students, and teachers too, were able to enjoy a day of getting acquainted by participating in games set up by our P.E. teacher, Mrs. Carrie Zeilstra. No one can deny, there is just something very special about our FA family! With great anticipation, from the youngest kindergartener to the oldest high school student, we welcome ALL of the FA family to the best year yet ~ 2010 to 2011!! May God richly bless ~ each & every one!

FADE is also making its debut on September 8th. Standing for Friday Addition Delivers

Education, it is based on the premise of John 3:30 ~ “He must increase, but I must

decrease.” Throughout this coming year, may we all strive to keep our eyes on Him!
