December 5, 2018- This holiday season, Christian Life School decided to add a little competitive spirit to motivate their students to give through a service project. Coordinated by Pastor of Spiritual Formation, Lacey Wallis, Student Advisories were challenged to donate money to help buy Christmas gifts for children whose parents are incarcerated through the Angel Tree Prison Fellowship Ministry.
With a goal to raise $400, the CLS 6-12th graders donated a total of almost $2500 allowing them to buy gifts for 34 children this Christmas.
After the money was sorted, the Senior Class took a shopping trip to handpick the items for the children. Not only were the gifts listed on the Angel Tree cards purchased, but every child also received a hat, gloves, and an uplifting book to read.
Wrapping and delivering the gifts will wrap up this service project and continues to help CLS align with their mission to prepare students to impact their world for God.
