Nursing Home Outreach - Piano Concert

Dear Homeschoolers,

Please join us as we visit a nursing home and bring some well wishes and Easter greetings to the residents.  Please note this is an outreach opportunity and not a piano recital.  The activities director mentioned other groups coming in with their families and not trying to reach the residents.  So as much as I would love for you to invite others, this is about/for the residents.  I am encouraging uplifting music - Christian, Classical, etc.  We will try not to have duplicate music performed as well.

DATE:  Thursday, April 2, 2015

TIME:  3:30 - 4:30PM

LOCATION:  The Merriman, 209 Merriman Road, Akron

# of pianists:  20

If your children would like to make encouraging cards to pass out afterwards to mingle with the residents that would be great!   After the concert, please join us for a potluck dinner.  YUM!

Please email Kim at by February 9, 2015 with children's names, skill level and song.  This should allow enough time for the children to practice their music.  Any questions, please let me know as well.  Looking forward to sharing our love of music with the residents at The Merriman and you!  Thank you for your servant's heart.

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God."  Colossians 3:16

Chess Anyone?

Greetings All!

Do you have kids who love to play chess?  We are beginning to host Chess Parties and looking for others to join us!  FUN, Food and Friends!!!  The parties will be Fridays or Saturdays evenings.  We encourage families to bring a chess set and a snack to share (san nuts).  If your children are interested, please email Kim at with Fri/Sat preferences.  Families will be contacted when the chess gatherings will occur, probably once a month.

"For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”  Matthew 18:20
