In His Name was buzzing with activity for the holiday season. At Harrison Square the Baptist Collegiate Ministry team from the University of North Georgia put together Christmas gift packages for the kids in our Shine after school program. Almost 40 kids received the gifts along with a hug. Also at Harrison Square, Jack and Amy Bentley put together a Christmas party complete with a showing of the movie The Polar Express. In attendance at the party were some Gideons who distributed Bibles to each person in attendance.
At Melrose apartments a party was thrown on December 13th. Tim Livingstone, a volunteer from Sandy Springs, put together a video showing the kids acting out Bible verses. After viewing the video, there was a puppet show and pizza for everyone.
On December 5th at Norwood, Brentwood, and Versailles apartments we had the youth group from Pine Grove Baptist Church in Gillesville to do a Christmas Craft with the kids. Over 30 kids participated in making a sock snowman. Afterwards, the youth spent about an hour playing games. The weather was beautiful, and everyone had a good time.
