Shared Christian ValuesPartnering with Parents
February features Jonah and the big fish, and, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Mrs. Ernst's P3 class is learning of God's love for us, and that He never leaves us, even when we have trouble listening and obeying, as Jonah certainly did at first. Our letter this week is Pp. Lots of fun projects reinforcing and learning this fun letter! Prickly porcupines, muddy piggies, and penguins on an icy pond were a few of the fun phrases used to teach this letter. We have lots of music and movement in class each day, since we can't go outside with all the snow. The EEC building gets to dancing and moving! We keep our hearts healthy, both spiritually and physically.
On Wednesday, the elementary students had an opportunity to hear one of their own share the Gospel in chapel. Several weeks ago 5th grader, Omari Banks had asked Mr. Gibson if he could speak in chapel. Omari said that he felt that God was calling him into the ministry. Mr. Gibson agreed, and helped Omari prepare. It was a privilege to see how God used this young man to clearly and confidently share the Gospel of Christ with his peers.
