Middle School Supports Matthew 25 Ministries
Last Friday, the middle school students spent the day at Matthew 25 Ministries working and serving in their warehouse. The students sorted numerous different items and then toured the facility to learn about the poor and poverty and how M25 meets those needs.
“We walked away privileged that we could be the hands and feet of Jesus making a difference here and afar!” said Bible teacher Ryan Bostater.
In addition, the middle school students collected money all week long for Matthew 25 and had dress up days with competitions to motivate them while they were helping a great cause! On Tuesday, they dressed up as professionals and career day; Wednesday they dressed up in decades, and Friday they dressed up as our favorite holidays. The winners of our dress up days were Aliisa James (8th), Clark Johnson (8th), and Rowan Calfee (7th). These winners walked away with gift cards to Starbucks, i-Tunes, and Coldstone.
Our goal for M25M was to raise $3000 as a middle school. As of Friday, they raised over $3200 for M25M. Because they met their goal, the middle school will be going to see the movie “The Case for Christ” in a couple of weeks. They also earned a week’s’ worth of free casual dress down days. The seventh graders brought in the most money and have earned donuts for breakfast this week. Mrs. Harris’s class brought in the most money and has also earned an ice cream party this week.
Great job, middle school!
