New Beginnings

God’s mercies are new and fresh every morning.  What an exciting beginning this fall at Heritage Academy with our violin program!  Classes are 7:20 am to 8:20 am Monday through Friday before school.  We have excellent instructors:  Anthony McCollum is a 5th year music major at Augusta University (Anthony instructs the beginner class); Pawel Kosak performs with the Symphony of Augusta (Pawel instructs the intermediate and advanced classes).  Savannah Elsey and I are assisting the 5 early morning classes.

The Beginner class on Monday mornings has 27 very energetic students, 2nd – 5th graders.  Who knows how this will influence their lives for the future.  The Intermediate Wednesday  and Friday class has 24 and are being challenged this year to read music, as well as continue to develop their Suzuki  listening skills.  The Advanced Tuesday and Thursday class are being challenged to concentrate on reading music as well.  This class is already preparing for two mini concerts in October:  United Way Kickoff  with MAU and a fundraiser for Symphony of Augusta.  Pray for us as we build relationships with our precious children and help them come to know the Lord of music, Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

We have moved from the Farmers’ Market to our own place at 2nd and Ellis Street.  Here we will offer fresh vegetables and have our own reclaimed wood items on display.

Thanks again for your interest and investment in Fireside Ministries and Industries.

In Christ, Phin Hitchcock
