Just days before the 5th graders graduated they took a trip to the local Cityteam ministry. The students were greeted with an overview of Cityteam's community outreach and ministry, along with hearing firsthand from people who have been positively impacted by Cityteam.
Cityteam has been serving the community of San Jose and other cities since 1957 by helping those in extreme poverty. They have met local needs by providing hope in Christ and help through shelters, meals, and recovery programs.
The students were able to donate items for basic needs and then assemble them into kits for the families and individuals in need. They also wrote cards and had a time of reflection and sharing about the experience.
Cityteam definitely left an impression on the students as they were reminded of the needs of those around them and how God can use them to provide hope to others.
