On March 12th, the Christians in Service Club held a dress giveaway for girls in the community. For the past three weeks, club members, students, and teachers collected over 90 dresses for any girl needing a prom or formal dress. The dresses were then made available to FA girls needing a formal dress for prom or special occasions in exchange for a donation. The Christians in Service Club used those donations towards their New Missions sponsor child, a 4th grader in Haiti named Rood. Thank you to everyone who helped make this dress drive a success!
At the Upper School this week, we had the privilege of hearing from Pastor Mike Ballard of Trinity Baptist Church! Our Praise Band 2 students led us in a moving time of worship and then Pastor Mike shared some of his story with us. Specifically, he spoke about his early years, about some of the decisions he made prior to becoming a Christ follower, and about how those decisions have impacted his life. “The choices you make today, can and will affect each and every one of your tomorrows,” he reminded our students.
We are thankful for guest speakers like Pastor Mike who share openly with our students and speak such truth into their lives!
Our prayer warrior for the week was Tarique from Mrs. Reynolds’ 5th grade class. We learned that Tarique loves mac and cheese, football, reading, and most of all God.
Our lesson was then brought by one of our Pastor Dads who is also the husband of 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Markham! He taught on our words and how they have power. To illustrate his teaching, he had student volunteers squeeze out all of the toothpaste from their tubes. But to get the prize the students then had to get all the toothpaste back into the tubes. Our words are similar–once they come out, the don’t go back in. Remember, words speak life!
