Here's a big THANK YOU from Sharon Nielsen

who directed the kids' musical this year...


"On December 11, 2016, our Deer Park Kids presented a fun & meaningful Christmas musical called "The Best Christmas Present Ever"! Their presentation left an impact on all those who attended. The kids sang beautifully & kept focused throughout! Those who had speaking parts presented their lines clearly so that the meaningful message came through loud & clear! "What Will You Do with Jesus?" Our preschoolers were so cute & adorable as always! A huge THANK YOU to our kids in preschool & Grades 1-6! SENSATIONAL job!!!
