Dear Parents and Guardians,
“In the crushing, in the pressing, You are making new wine. In the soil I now surrender, You are breaking new ground.
Make me a vessel, make me an offering, make me whatever You want me to be” ~ lyrics from the song “New Wine”
May we learn to surrender fully and allow our almighty God to make us (BCCA) whatever He wants us (BCCA) to be.
