As you may already know we are looking at the virtue of hope this month in Route 252. This weekend the kids got to do a ministry project for the First Baptist Church in Maryville, Ill. As you probably heard, their pastor was shot and killed a week ago during a Sunday service. What a tragedy! My heart goes out to that congregation and all who have experienced this loss. As you can see by the pictures, the kids made cards and signed a banner to be sent to the children’s pastor and the kids there at First Baptist.
We have been learning all month that Hope is believing that something good can come out of something bad. The kids did an amazing job with this project and it was so good to see them show concern about others. Parents, you ought to be proud of your kids. One boy came up to me and told me he was going to send his hope bracelet that he made a couple of weeks ago in KidzWorld to the children’s pastor at that church.
Next week in the 252 Theater we will be talking aboute what heaven is like. It ought to be good.
