The Bluegrass Gospel Concert is over for another year and the concert committee would like to say THANK YOU. Thanks to everyone who did the hard work on the packets, those who worked at the shows, and those who came out in support and enjoyed the groups. We thank you for your continued support of our school and look forward to next year’s concert. We are always interested in finding new groups for our concert, so please let one of the committee members know if you know of a group or have heard a group that we can look into.

We thank you again for all your help this year.

Friends of IACS,

In case you are not on our main email list (you can sign up at iowachristianschools.org), I wanted to make sure you had the link to the action alert that just went out.  Please get your communities (your school, neighboring schools) activated.  We need all hands on deck.  We may have one more of these alerts going out before the end of the session but this is important that we demonstrate big support statewide.

Let’s get a ton of emails into the House!
