Thanks for your continued support and generosity. We have two requests.
1) This week we start collecting shoes and boots for kids in Maynardville who can’t go to school as they don’t have shoes. We need all sizes in girls and boys, new and used. We will have tubs outside each school entrance to drop them in.
2) Also, could you continue to encourage your child/children to bring their offering each week? The more students we have participating, the more we can show Jesus to our community.
God is working at BCS Cheers,
I was once part of blessing a 7 year old girl who had never been given presents at Christmas time. In an effort to bless her, many students organized and saved up $800 as a school which they used to purchase Christmas gifts for her. We invited the young girl to the school, made a tunnel for her to run through, had her sit on a princess throne (that the students had made) and each class gave her presents purchased with the money they raised.
I will never forget this. I’m sure it blessed the girl and her family, but I wasn’t prepared for how it made me feel. It inspired me to pursue what has become a personal motto of mine.... ‘find joy in the happiness of others.’
Reflecting on this memory has inspired me to start a similar program at our school. “Berean Blessings” is an opportunity for your son or daughter to experience the lifelong memory of making a big difference in someone’s life!
