Posted by Colby Kinser on

A few weeks ago on a Sunday morning before Sunday school got underway, I was standing in the foyer talking with one of the women of our church family. Then Miss Loopy walked by with one of the grade schoolers at her side. The two of them were hanging up signs throughout the building for the...
