How Can You Serve Our King?"
"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." Mt. 25: 40
Throughout the month of February we are going to not only learn from others of practical ways to use our abilities and resources to serve but also participate in varied means to serve and minister to others.
Week of February 8th: Mission Week
- Daily at 8:25 we will learn through varied individuals how they are Jesus' hands and feet to others around the world. (Parents are welcome at any time.)
Throughout this week individual classes will compete against one another to collect money to help orphans and refugees. Each class will have a collection container that begins the day in the fellowship hall but with the a.m. bell is moved outside the individual classroom. (All coins will be added to individual class values, but any bills added to a class jar will result in a deduction. The class winner will enjoy an ice cream sundae party and game time together. Each class that brings in an average of $5 per student will enjoy free time also.)
The following pattern will apply:
1. "Penny Harvest" is Monday, February 9th.
All students are asked to harvest at least 100 pennies from loose change at home and bring them to their class on Monday so that they may be used for some mathematics challenges and provide our first missions seed.
2. "Mission $1 Store" is Thursday from 8:00-4:00 and Friday from 8:00-noon in the fellowship hall.
Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday each student is asked to bring in at least one used item (i.e. toy, DVD, games, sports equipment, puzzle, doll, book etc.) to donate to the store. Then Thurs. and Friday with $1 each student may purchase from the store.
Friday Feb 13: ½ day class - Winter Break (valentine parties start at 10:45am).
Monday Feb 16: No School - Winter Break
