This picture was taken of our classroom altar. This year our theme is “All for One” and the cross that you see was made by the students. It represents how we are all individuals and God made us special, yet we are all one body or family in Christ. I am excited to use this theme throughout the year to help us to learn about ourselves but also to be part of God’s family!!
The altar cloth and small wooden cross come from Belize. This year our chapel offerings will go to buy children’s Bibles for the children in Belize. This past summer several Zion staff members went down to Belize to minister and help fellow teachers in Belize. Because of this partnership, we will be able to provide these Bibles to the children! Very awesome opportunity to spread God’s word to all His people!
