Today we got to hang out with some of our other home school friends from church for Valentine's Day. We got together and made Valentine's Day cards for the residents of the Christian Care Center in Allen, TX. Abigail coordinated with the Activities Director for our group to pass out our home made cards and visit while the residents enjoyed their lunch.
Many of our Church of Christ on McDermott Road church family live in the independent living section. And several of our Bible Bowl kids great-grandparents also reside in the assisted living portion of the facility. The facility is very new and incredibly nice. It specifically houses elderly members of the churches of Christ. Many of the residents are members of the Waterview Church of Christ that planted the McDermott congregation. We've even met relatives of our church friends from Oklahoma!
After the kids passed out their homemade cards they exchanged valentine cards with each other, and played a few cards games together.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27
