WHAT: Afternoons spent with middle and high school students give us the chance to hang out, snack, read, do homework, and work on fun projects!  Somedays we are scientists and mathematicians. Other days we cook together and rap a few tunes. Every day we are learning more about the God who created us & His plans for us!
