OUR STORY
Godly, family centered instruction for their children

The parents, teachers and the Board of Directors believe that the Bible gives parents the responsibility and privilege of providing Godly, family centered instruction for their children. The basis of the school is the Holy Bible which is regarded as the infallible and authoritative Word of God. The curriculum focuses on bible based principles, including scripture memorization, which is designed to encourage the children to apply these lessons to their daily life.

Christian Family Learning Center operates out of the facilities provided by Foothill Community Church. The school also includes a Computer Lab, Art Workshop, and an Enrichment Room.

The playground features basketball, volleyball, tetherball, four square, hopscotch, a playground structure, track and a large grass playing field.
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Old Timers Museum Walking Tours Are Every Saturday at 10am.
Murphys, CA...Each Saturday morning the Old Timers Museum in Murphys offers a historical walking tour of Murphys. No reservation necessary. Meet at the Museum, 470 Main St, Murphys, across from the Hotel 10 am. Walk is 1-1/12 hours.


A stroll down tree-lined Main Street transports visitors back to the mid-1800s with buildings bearing thick stone walls, iron shutters and pastoral gardens with white picket fences. Once you experience the charm and hospitality of Murphys, the historic “Queen of the Sierra”, you’ll want to come back again and again!

Rich in Gold Rush History, Murphys today is a vibrant, thriving community of over 2,000 residents. Many of the surrounding hillsides are rich with the fine wine grapes grown in our area. Murphys offers wineries, art galleries, live theater, eclectic shops, fine restaurants, charming hotels and B&B’s as well as a multitude of outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities.

Murphys’ colorful past came alive in 1848 when John and Daniel Murphy established a trading post and gold mining operation in the area that is now their namesake. True entrepreneurs with the luck of the Irish, they were a part of the very first immigrant party – the Stephens-Townsend-Murphy families – to successfully bring wagons over the Sierra in 1844, paving the way for westward migration. John and Daniel’s cries of “Gold!” were among the first heard in California. It is reported that the brothers took two million dollars in gold ore from the Murphys Diggins in one year’s time, making them millionaires before the age of 25. The sizzling Gold Rush camp of Murphys also played host to President Grant, Mark Twain and Black Bart. And in some circles, to an even more famous chap – a young, inquisitive lad who literally changed the scientific world, Dr. Albert Michelson.

Our friendly residents invite you to revisit the past while exploring the “new” upscale Murphys. Guided walking tours of the town’s many historic buildings including the home of Albert Michelson, the first American Nobel Prize winner, are conducted every Saturday at 10:00 a.m., starting in front of the Old Timers Museum on Main Street.
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Town Tours of Columbia State Historic Park Every Weekend!
Columbia, CA...Enjoy an hour-long walking tour of town led by a park staff member or docent. See the actual gold discovery site, learn about the buildings and early merchants of Columbia. Sponsored by The Friends Of Columbia SHP. Visit their website here for more information. Town Tours are every Saturday & Sunday starting at 11 am. Meet at the office on Main Street & State St Columbia, CA 95310

02:00 PM Mountain Melody December Concerts in Angels Camp, Mokelumne Hill, Sutter Creek & Douglas Flat
Mokelumne Hill, CA...“Holiday Belles” will be ringing out once again as the Ladies of Mountain Melody bring their musical magic to the foothills in four delightful seasonal concerts. Lots of new favorite tunes such as “Cool Yule,” and Gettin’ In The Mood For Christmas,” and old gems such as “Jingle Bells” and “Sleigh Ride” will get you in the holiday spirit! A new venue in Sutter Creek, the Old Grammar School, extends our concerts into Amador County, and we will also be a part of the Moke Hill Holiday Open House with a performance at Renegade Winery.

07:00 PM - 09:30 PM The Games Afoot
Murder? maybe. Mayhem? a distinct possibility. Hilarity? Definitely!

Take a suspense thriller worthy of Sherlock Holmes, wrap it in a stylish screwball comedy, set it at Christmastime and you get the holiday whodunnit “The Game’s Afoot”.
William Gillette, a Broadway superstar, famous the world over for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes, has invited fellow cast members to his opulent home for a holiday dinner party. But when one of the guests winds up dead, Gillette finds himself at the center of a mystery that might have stumped Holmes himself and now he must summon every ounce of Sherlock to solve the mystery.
Just for the record…There really was a William Gillette. He really did become immensely wealthy by writing and performing in a play about Sherlock Holmes. He really created the image of the great detective that we hold dear today. But that’s where any semblance of reality ends.
It’s Holmes for the Holidays this Christmas season! Who did it? Who will be next?
See “The Game’s Afoot” and find out. And have yourself a hearty holiday laugh too.

Reviews
“An inspired whodunit […] a snappy, clever drawing-room mystery. There are twists in playwright Ken Ludwig’s The Game’s Afoot that cause the audience to gasp.” – The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“The Game’s Afoot is Murderously Funny!” – Broadway World Cleveland

“The play evolves like a mystery thriller, as one tantalizing clue leads to another […] In 1936, at the height of the Great Depression, people flocked to the theater for a few hours of escapism from hard times. Today, in our current recession, here is an antidote and the ideal holiday present – the gift of laughter.” – Cleveland Jewish News

“Ludwig demonstrates the theatrical equivalent of perfect pitch, both in this new work and in his past efforts.” – Cleveland Scene

“From the intriguing opening mini play within a play to the surprise last scene a split second before final curtain, The Game’s Afoot gives you everything you love about great live theatre. Billed as a comedy thriller you will find yourself swept along for a wild and funny ride.” – Cleveland Examiner

“A hilarious, quirky and thrilling alternative to your standard holiday entertainment. The Game’s Afoot is the perfect gift for the holidays..a fantastically fun night out at the theatre. It’s something we can be proud of as a city” – ClueintoCleveland.com

“The Game’s Afoot will be performed by professional and community theaters across the country. Certainly this production is Broadway quality.” – TalkinBroadway.com
