Thanksgiving Day of Service - Mercy Forever
Thank you families and students for the many ways you loved and served one another and the community around us on our annual Thanksgiving Day of Service.
The entire student-body sorted and packed nearly 150 hygiene kits for the Orphan Grain Train, a Christian volunteer network that ships donated food, clothing, medical and other needed items to people in the United States and 64 countries around the world. Thank you families for providing so many of the needed supplies and to the PTL for purchasing the towels! All students had a chance to help assemble the kits, from the youngest student in Junior Kindergarten counting and wrapping band aids, to the older students in 5th through 8th grade who helped the lower school students assemble the right supplies and wrap and tie the bundles. The kits and the extra supplies are all being delivered to the Orphan Grain Train facility in Annapolis this week.
In addition to this school-wide project, individual classes spent time serving others within the school and church community. The second grade class entertained the Junior Kindergarten class with a dramatic performance, while the 4th, 5th and 6th grade students helped to prepare and serve a lunch for the Immanuel Lutheran Church Golden Group. The third grade students then entertained the group during lunch with a Hymn sing, allowing the congregation members to pick their favorite hymns for the students to lead the group in signing. Students also drew and wrote out cards for injured service members and mothers at Assist Pregnancy Center and helped with projects around the school.
