Reasons Why Today's Class was Fun, Exciting, and Precious
#1: We had popcorn for snack! We started out with just a handful of seeds, which the kids did not think would be enough to feed the whole class. We sent the seeds through a hot air popcorn popper, and voila, our giant mixing bowl was full of popcorn. This was a great way to get our minds thinking about how God can work in amazing ways to make sure we have enough food.
#2: We heard an amazing Bible story! It was about a widow who did not have enough food to feed her family; all she had was a jar of cooking oil. After receiving advice from Elisha, she collected a bunch of empty jars from her friends and neighbors. She was able to fill all the empty jars with her one jar of oil. Then she sold the oil and used her earnings to buy food for her family. God provided through a miracle.
#3: We donated a very heavy grocery bag of food to the Greenwood Food Bank! We talked about how God provides through sharing what we have with others.
#4: We had guest musicians! Mark and Elizabeth brought their instruments and talent over to the Green Bean and shared a couple songs with us. It was a great change in routine that we hope to see more of in the future.
#5: We made magnets to help us remember to pray and thank God for our food!
