Jesus, my new BFF
The Grade 2 classes joined together to celebrate friendship. But not just any friendship! Each child was asked to reflect specifically on the statement “Jesus is my friend because_______”.
Each child wrote his/her response and the documents were posted on the front bulletin boards. When all was ready, the students and their teachers invited all the parents to join them for a special prayer service. Together they sang, shared and prayed. All left the ceremony with a renewed sense of Jesus as Friend, the center of a community of friends.
The gathering relocated to the cafeteria where friendship bracelets were made, snacks shared and great conversations had.
