Happy Thanksgiving from our Sunday School

Posted on

On November 19 the young people in our Sunday School completed a number of Thanksgiving activities, including painting and decorating a collection of “kindness rocks.”  These bright and cheerful stones have been collected from various locations and are covered with designs, words or phrases meant to cheer up whoever finds them.  “One message at just the right time can change your entire day and maybe even your outlook on life! ”  Look out for these creations on our church campus and elsewhere in the community in the weeks to come.  Take one … share one … add one to the collection.    (Click on the featured photo to see more photos in the gallery.)

The children also wrote Letters of Appreciation to our military personnel.  These very thoughtful letters are being sent to the organization, “A Million Thanks,” from where they will be distributed to active, reserve and veteran service men and women around the world.  One student wrote “… I hope this letter gives you strength in times of need and in times of tragedy.  You are doing things that other people would never do because they are not brave enough to risk their lives for their country and others in need.  I salute you for all you do.”  Another wrote “… there is great power in prayer.  Prayer gives you strength.  We are praying for you.  We thank you for your service, support, and your sacrifice.”

And, finally, the children have been very faithful stewards during the ten weeks of the Fall Session of Sunday School.  Their offerings, amounting to a total of $100.00, have been donated to the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York and are being used to help cover the cost of feeding the hungry in our area, especially at Thanksgiving, a time when we give thanks for all we have and think about sharing our blessings with those in need.

We are so grateful for the kind and thoughtful young people of our Sunday School, and for the parents who bring them to us to learn how to live the lives that our Lord has modeled for us all.
