Third Graders Give Christmas Away

Mrs. Gibson and Mrs. Brown’s classes of 3rd graders decided to “give Christmas away”. Instead of doing $5.00 gift exchanges for each other, they pooled their money and purchased gifts for children who attend Sunday school through Candlelight Ministries. They purchased sticker nativity sets, candy, and bears with “Jesus” on them, and made a special craft with a manger scene for each child to receive at Candlelight Ministries. (Candlelight Ministries was started at an area church located near an Olive Branch trailer home park. Kids from the trailer homes, have a place they walk over to on Sunday mornings for a snack breakfast and a Sunday school lesson. Mrs. Brown’s class has worked with this ministry all year and continues now at Christmas). We love the hearts of these kids and their teachers!
