This year our church school children participated in a service project for Lent. We made our own "Journey to the Cross" as we tried to walk in the footsteps of Christ. We explored the ways that He fasted, prayed and served others. We decided to serve others by collecting items for Cradles to Crayons, which is an organization that seeks to connect communities that have with those that need. We used the list provided by the organization to think about what we can shop for at home to help others. Once we collected the items, we sorted them and prayed for the people who would receive them. Here are the kids after a morning spent sorting the donations.
