Even young children benefit from fellowship. It teaches them to cooperate, to share, and to work with others. Also, the younger ones (especially!) need to burn up some of their extra energy at frequent intervals and that builds stronger bodies.
In June of 2011 Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church held a rummage sale to obtain funds for a piece of playground equipment. A matching grant from Thrivent helped with that, for which we are grateful. The sale was successful and in short order that playground equipment was installed by members of the congregation. Of course, no project is complete until it has been tested and approved by the authorities – in this case, the children!
