1st Grade Bible Mission Project

Mrs. Harrell and Mrs. Morgan's 1st grade classes have been studying about the importance of giving.    This week their bible story was from Luke 21:4 "The Widow's Offering".  The students decided that they wanted to do something to help someone in need and selected The Agape Shop for clothing, shoes and toys, and our local Food Pantry for the can goods.  What a great way to show Gods love!!
