Bible club starts at William R. Davie

There are some William R. Davie students who are excited that their school has recently started a Good News Bible Club.

“I like it that we get challenged to remember Bible verses,” said Levi Williams.

Jackson Pierce added: “We get snacks. I like memorizing the verses from the Bible, too.”

Christopher Solano was excited: “We learn about God.”

Skylar Neely smiled shyly: “We learn about Jesus in the lessons.”

There are 37 energetic and happy children signed up to attend the Good News Bible Club every Thursday following school.

Rachel Gillum is the team leader. She and other workers attended training getting the club ready to start.  Other workers include: Roberta and Paul Bonardi, Tom Whitaker, James Williams, Mavis Baity, Sue Madden, Daniel Harmon, Rosemary Collins, Harold Bumby, Jackie Wright, Kim Nivens and Carol Stapf.

The Bible story teachers are Erin Williams and Lynette Pierce.

The students begin the afternoon club by sitting with grade level friends to have a snack and to share prayer requests and say memory verses. Following that the whole group sings and listens to the Bible story.

William R. Davie was the only elementary school that didn’t have a Bible Club.  The club is sponsored by Bear Creek Baptist, Blaise Baptist, Chestnut Grove Methodist, Courtney Baptist,  Ijames Baptist, Liberty Wesleyan, Calvary West,  and Eatons Baptist.

Gideons are supplying Bibles for students who need them.

Other volunteers are welcome, contact Gillum.
