HSLDA Group Membership


Last year, CHESCA started a Membership Discount Group. If you are a CHESCA member family and desire to use our Membership Discount Group number, the number is 299674 .


We need to keep 15 families consistently who either are applying or already HSLDA members to keep our discount group intact. If you want CHESCA to become, or remain, your Discount Group could you please take a minute and write your HSLDA membership number on the Field Trip Registration Form with this newsletter? We can then, automatically update your family and include you in our Discount Group with HSLDA. We currently have 49 families that belong to our discount group. When you renew your membership with HSLDA, please use the above number. Thanks.


New Contenders for the Faith Group

Dads! Now is the time to start thinking about your sons. I am. Let's seize the moment together. Come to a planning meeting to decide how it comes together. Do we want badge requirements? Do we want structured time? Do we want camp-outs? Do we want food?! Bring your sons and we can discuss it. 


Call Mark Stevenson @ (330) 497-6776 for details about the planning meeting

Wednesday’s Prayer

Father God to You I come

In the name of Your Son

I bring my children to Your throne

Father hear my cry


Above all else, Lord save their souls

Draw them near You keep them close

Be the shield against their foes

Make them Yours not mine


Give them peace in Christ alone

In their sorrow be their song

No other joy would last as long

Father calm their fear


Guide their feet, Lord, light their path

May their eyes on You be cast

Give their hands a kingdom task

A purpose for their years


And as my flesh cries out for bread

May I hunger, Lord, instead

That my children would be fed

On Your words of life


So...Father God to You I come

In the name of your Son

I bring my children to Your throne

Father hear my cry
