On October 21st, the SK-Grade 1’s and their many “special grown-ups” were challenged to create a family culture that responds to whatever needs God is calling them to meet–stinky feet, messy rooms, snow-covered driveways … Neighbours who need love and care.
And talk about jumping into action.
The group caught the “serving bug,” and readied themselves to personally deliver this encouraging message to our neighbours–the residents and staff of Forest Heights Long Term Care Centre: Nothing is impossible with God…He can be trusted and counted on, no matter what.
Moms, Dads and siblings joined the SK-Grade 1’s as they rehearsed 2 songs, which they presented to Forest Heights residents on the morning of November 18th…(Hey, way to sing and move like you mean it!)
The families then took the opportunity to chat with residents as they gave out the cards and gifts they had prepared on their Take-It-Home Sunday.
The best thing about this experience? Serving together…
Many thanks to Ingrid Leopp-Thiessen, the chaplain at Forest Heights–who keeps asking us to come back–to the Take-It-Home team, to the On Your Mark! SK-Grade 1 leaders, to the Queen’s Blvd House Church, and especially to the parents, grandparents and siblings who modelled what it means to “wash one another’s feet.”
