THE FIRST THROUGH SIXTH-GRADE students of the First Baptist Church of DeFuniak Springs’ First Christian Academy went caroling at homes around the neighborhood on Friday, Dec. 9. The students and their teachers visited and sang at about 10 different homes. In addition to getting to take some time off from their studies to spread some holiday cheer, each child was given a Christmas card and small gift. (Photo by Reid Tucker
