Harborside Interns

He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”

Matthew 13:31-32

Interns and Shadows are responsible for their own lunches. You can pack a lunch or buy a lunch. You will have a 1 hour break to do so. High School students are not to drive with other students without parent consent. Disciples will leave campus @12noon, so they need not worry about lunch.
