“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”
-Psalm 51:10, KJV

Foothill Elementary Bible
Class Inspires Students
to Live God’s Love

“Move That Bus!” Many are familiar with this phrase from ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover television show. Students of Foothill Adventist Elementary’s fifth- and sixth-grade class applied this “makeover” model in their Bible curriculum about salvation. Upon learning how God wants to do a “makeover” in their lives, they were inspired to do a “makeover” in their community. Students put together care packages for their local heroes and also for the homeless living in the neighborhoods of San Jose. In early October, they visited Saint James Park in the heart of San Jose and handed out 55 care packages. The students then visited four local fire stations with homemade cookies and cards for firefighters. This experience empowered them to continue living out their faith in active ways!






Inspired by what they learned in Bible class, students of Foothill Adventist Elementary School put together care packages for their local heroes and also for the homeless in their neighborhoods.

Backpacks for Christ
Ministry Meets Needs
in Phoenix

For the Camelback church in Phoenix, Arizona, the holidays mean coming together to share their blessings with others. Over 11 years ago, several members at the church started Backpacks for Christ, a ministry that provides blankets, scarves, hats, backpacks, ponchos, and bus passes to the homeless. Some of the church’s members have made over 100 scarves and hats for the project. Last year, the church gave out 1,500 backpacks. This church is focused on building relationships and meeting needs.




Members of the Camelback church in Phoenix, Arizona, help assemble supplies to give to the homeless in their community as part of the Backpacks for Christ ministry.
