School of Grace Annual Art Show
Sunday Afternoon, even though I had seen the art, I wandered through all of the canopies (and looked at the Sky Color display) after everyone left The School of Grace Annual Art Show and Silent Auction. The essence of the joy and laughter remained, along with the delight in seeing SoG graduates return and so many of you, our Grace Lutheran Church family attend. Together, the church and preschool are truly a family and Sunday was our reunion.
On Monday morning, I woke up smiling! Why? Well, certainly, raising $3722 in the Art Show and Silent Auction is exciting, but the memory of Teachers collaborating as the Art Show was created, families reunited, church members showing your support and our recognition of the children’s creations led to my genuine delight.
Scholarship Goal – Met and Surpassed by Your Generosity
Then, on top of that, came the realization that you, as members of this extended family, have committed to give over $16,000 to our scholarship program for our refugee children and families in need. I was speechless and filled with awe at how God is working through this church to continue our history of supporting refugee families; to continue to reach beyond our walls to touch lives; to stretch by offering what we have as we “seek the fullness of life in Christ for all people”.
My heart is happy! I hope yours is, too! On behalf of the children and families at The School of Grace, I thank you. I truly thank you.
