Weekend Review

November 24, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

giveThis weekend we started a new series called the big give.  Kinda stole the idea from Oprah.  My wife and I caught a couple of episodes of the show and as I watched I couldn’t help but think how students could get involved in something like this that allows them to see a need and meet a need. This weekend I challenged the student to do these three things

What is required to get involved in the Big Give!

  1. You have to DREAM BIG!
  2. You have to LIVE BIG!
  3. You have to SERVE BIG!

We will have some organized opportunities for students to get involved with but the general idea of the series is to look at the needs around us and to get involved.  This week we talked about Gifts of Grace.

This is how Gifts of Grace- Toys for East Plano was started and where I need your help blog land:-) Please, Please help a child in need. All you have to do is 3 simple steps!!

1. Cut out a tag provided on this pdf file.

2. Purchase a toy.

3. Mail your NEW toy with a securely attached tag by Nov. 30th to:

Grace Community Church
Att: Toys for East Plano
4501 Hedgcoxe Road

OR drop it by the Church on Dec. 7th.

**Please mail gifts by November 30th
You may send wrapped or unwrapped toys as long as you include a tag.

    Thanks for the comment and encouragement! God has really been working in this series. It will be neat to see how God uses our students, and gives them an awareness of the things around them!!!
