GYM Christmas Party
The Lord has called us to be a community mirroring the love of Christ. As a Youth Ministry, we wanted to reflect the generosity of Jesus by raising money to bless kids in need in our own community. Each student and leader was challenged to bring his or her own money to buy gifts for children to open on Christmas day. With over 160 students and 20 leaders, we raised $1,640 to buy gifts for 26 different kids. It was very humbling to watch students give their time, energy and money towards blessing others. The generosity of these students was inspiring. Afterwards, all students participated in the traditional white elephant gift exchange. I look forward to seeing what the Lord continues to do through these students!
