Dearest Glenwood Family,There are times in our lives that we are very excited and very sad. This is one of those times for Becky and me. It has been an honor to have served the Glenwood family for the last eight years. We are excited because God has opened up an opportunity for me to work as a Christian School Administrator and Family Minister with the Grace Crossing Church of Christ in Conroe. I have officially accepted this position and my last day at Glenwood will be Sunday, September 23. Becky and I have heavy hearts as we say goodbye to our Glenwood family. We are looking forward to this new journey God has opened for us. Becky, who is currently in a teaching contract, will join me when she completes her obligations. Thank you again for all the love and support you have shown us these last eight years.Tim & Becky Hicks

Kirk Cameron will headline a dinner benefitting Christian Homes & Family Services on Tuesday evening, October 16, at Green Acres CrossWalk Center. Cameron’s newest film, Connect, offers help for parenting kids and teens in a social media world. Since 1962 more than two thousand children have a forever family to call their own because they were adopted through Christian Homes. Every month, almost 40 children have a safe and loving home with a Christian Homes foster family. And almost 3,000 women have had an alternative to an abortion because Christian Homes provided them with free maternity care. Come join us and be encouraged on October 16 as we pursue our vision of “a Christian home for every child.” For tables, tickets and information, visit christianhomes.com or call Elisse Thompson at (903) 509-0558.
