Our kindergarten is cheaper than most daycares in the are, so a lot of people from different backgrounds will send their kids there just for the price.
Everyone (Blitz doesn't count) fears ninjas, except for one: I, Ninjahunter

That is so sweet!FlyingRider wrote:Cool everyone! Isn't it great seeing God touch people through our outreaches! I love when we have them. The smiles on the kids faces. I was once helping in sunday school and this little girl came up to me ( shes not from the church) and she told me i was pretty and that she loved me. She barely knew me ( she was 6) and apparently i had impacted her last time i helped out.
Our church does AWANA, sometimes has missions trips, and a food pantry. They usually do VBS but didn't this year because things were getting complicated (I'm not totally sure of the reason)
The main thing we focus on is Justice Mission which helps the poor, helps persecuted believers, and has an anti-human trafficking group, with a shop in the church that sells products made by women who were enslaved. I helped with inventory one day and went to the dinner last week where they gave info about it. I could be a cashier but I'm no good at fast-paced kinds of things. Dad helps with the Persecuted Church mission.
I was a supervisor at the 0-5 nursery, but supervising others just doesn't fit me. I'd rather work directly with the kids, anyway. So I got 'demoted' to a volunteer.
