Spiritual Emphasis Week
Next week, our entire school will be participating in Spiritual Emphasis Week with a concentration on Service.
On Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday our 6th-12th grade may wear appropriate school jeans and a spirit shirt. They will be doing various service projects throughout the school and church; therefore, they may want to be bring an extra set of jeans and a spirit shirt.
Tuesday will be Chapel Uniform for 6th-12th grade and Friday remains a normal spirit day.
In addition to these projects, we ask that you consider donating the below items for the E.A.G.L.E Baskets.
Expressing the Abundance of God’s Love, Encouragement and Salvation
We are in our sixth year of doing our E.A.G.L.E.S project and are very excited! The E.A.G.L.E.S is a volunteer project in which the whole school comes together and partners with First Baptist Church to be God’s hands and feet. We are helping build Thanksgiving Baskets for our neighbors in need right here in Universal City. Our goal is to build 50 baskets or more baskets. If someone tried to do this alone, or to just one basket, it would cost a great deal. If we all come together we can meet our goal of 50 or more, and more importantly help others experience the love of Jesus.
We ask that you find your child’s grade and send in the item listed to the classroom teacher. We only ask that you bring the item listed for your child’s grade, but if you decide to do more, please do! At the same time, we also know that not everyone is able to donate and we completely understand. This is a volunteer project.
All items need to be turned in by Friday, November 15, 2019
K3 and K4: 2 cans of green beans
K5: 2 cans of cranberry sauce
1st: 2 large cans of sweet potatoes
2nd: 2 boxes of cornbread
