First graders blessing the high school

first grade

Last Sunday was a special morning in our student ministry hour; the first graders came to visit! As part of their lessons they have been studying missions and as a class raised enough money to donate towards the Nicaragua team to cover the costs of four Nicaraguan children coming to the camp we’ll be leading and to pay for the end of the camp party pinata! What a great, tangible learning tool for the first graders … and a great way to bless the older students who are normally the ones helping them! When they came to present it to the group they were a little overwhelmed, but still managed to get in front of all the students, recite their memory verses and give us the above card with the money they raised! What a great group of kids – can’t wait to have them in youth group in five years!
