“For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
-Psalm 139:13-14 NIV
The Early Learning Center's K4 Class spent last week discussing the diversity of community helpers. They spent the week learning how the Lord knitted them together for specific reasons with strengths and desires to serve Him for His glory.
We had three of our K4 parents come to speak to the class about how God has called them to their profession to help others to build and strengthen their community. Noelle Durr’s mother, Shaunta Durr is an Early Childhood Education professor at Hinds Community College, and she spoke on her career in education. Harper Howard’s father, Matthew Howard was recently matched for Pediatrics in South Carolina for medical residency and shared with students about what a career path in the medical field looks like. Finally, Beau Barnhill’s father, Brett Barnhill is the Executive Director of Reclaimed Project and a missionary to Lesotho, Africa. He shared his story with students about having a career in global ministry.
Students had fun creating hats that represented jobs they dream of doing someday! They completed the look by dressing in outfits they put on over their uniforms to 'match their hats.
We are thankful for the parents who were willing to take the time to share their testimonies and
professions with us! It was a memorable day for all involved.
