Challenged to Give
ZACHARY, ARK. – The Zachary Seventh-day Adventist Church is not a very big church and only has a small group of Juniors in its Junior Sabbath School Class, but their small numbers didn’t stop them from doing a mighty work for the Lord. At the end of the first quarter of 2018, the Junior Class had $205 for their 13th Sabbath mission offering. They came up with the idea of challenging the Adult Sabbath School Class for the next 13th Sabbath offering to see who could give the most for missions. Everyone was quite busy during the quarter. Caitlyn baked and sold cakes. Brecken went through all his belongings and had a rummage sale. There was quite a lot of anticipation on June 30 as the 13th Sabbath offering was counted. The church treasurer announced the adults had given $430 and the Junior class had raised $845 for missions. Caitlyn and Brecken once again challenged the adult class for the next 13th Sabbath mission offering! They have found that working for the Master is a great way for everybody to win!
