The God We Can Know: Exploring the ”I Am” Sayings of Jesus
Jesus used images to identify himself. The author guides the reader to understand the historical Jewish roots behind these images and discover how these connect with our lives. Fuquay portrays Christianity as a relationship, and the “I Am” sayings invite the reader into a relationship with Jesus. Commentary on scripture and interesting stories from personal experiences help make this connection.

FMS CELEBRATES EASTER!
First Methodist School students are preparing to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We have learned about the many miracles He performed and are now learning about Him being raised from the dead.
Our week will conclude with lively Easter Egg hunts and celebrations! Open enrollment for Summer Fun (ages 1-10) and the 2015-2016 (ages 1-kindergarten) school year is going on now. Thank you for telling families with children about our school. We are committed to the spiritual, social/emotional, academic, and physical growth of our students and we love to welcome new friends!
We have a few spots available for the remainder of the 2014-2015 school year, so spread the word! Please check out our website and our Facebook page for more information about our school.
