November 2021

Greetings from Joel Johnson

Hello from Lakeland! What a great time we had at Homecoming 2021! If you have not attended Homecoming in a while, or have never been, you are missing out. As soon as we have the dates confirmed for 2022, we will send those out. The plan is for it to be around the third week of October. 

Also, please consider being a part of our Alumni Trip to Israel, which will take place from April 30 to May 9, 2022.
