Thank you to SMG Junior High

Dear Mrs. Rios,

Please express my thanks to all the kids that attended the SMG School dance on Friday night, April 22. They were asked to bring canned food for the pantry and they did an awesome job. I picked up 137 cans the following week! I placed a THANK YOU in this weekend’s bulletin to them under the Social Ministry section.

The kids are doing the Lords work and no wonder Jesus loved children so much. The innocence and caring for others without reservation is exemplified by them.
