HTM Friends Spread Christmas Cheer
Visiting with Our Friends at The Lodge
Over the last few weeks, our Lower Elementary friends have been going in groups to visit residents at The Lodge, a senior assisted living community in Bellevue. Together with the residents, they have been doing art projects, talking and telling stories, and more. These opportunities to serve our elders have been so life-giving to our young friends, who are enjoying these outings more and more every time! And of course, the residents love to see the happy young faces of our friends, engage with them, and to hear about their lives.
Yesterday we took our entire Lower Elementary class and teachers to The Lodge to spread some Christmas cheer! We played guitars, sang carols, and passed out lots of hugs. It was such a touching and memorable day. We wanted to give you a glimpse of our experience, so enjoy these pictures and the video. We hope it warms your heart as well!
