The CFS Choir’s journey to Israel from June 9-21, 2020, promises to be a special musical and educational experience. Truly, this opportunity is not just a matter of sightseeing, but an occasion for personal discovery and connection with people from many cultures. The Holy Land stirs up passion and curiosity in Christians, Jews and Muslims alike, and will provide life-enhancing experiences for our students through singing, worshipping and collaborating in churches, local communities and centers of goodwill while learning about this ancient Biblical land. As ambassadors of their school, the boys will bring the CFS story to a wider audience and bring back to the entire community the images and lessons they will have experienced and learned.
