What can we do to make our Sabbath School experience more meaningful? This was a challenge encountered by the leadership of the Sabbath School department of the Sandy Point (Zion) Seventh-day Adventist Church, in St. Kitts, at the start of 2022. One of the ideas that surfaced was to initiate a local investment project in which each member would participate. The Sabbath School department has an annual investment program that supports world missions. However, this project would benefit individuals in the local church and community who had been affected by the pandemic.
From the word "Go", members embraced the concept of the localized investment project. Each Sabbath, they would bring the loose change from the week's shopping and allow it to grow throughout the quarter. The collection grew steadily, and at the end of the quarter, over $700.00 had been pooled.
The Sabbath School and Community Services ministries teamed up for the shopping, preparation and distribution of items for hot meals and packages. On Sabbath, March 26, nine hot meals were given. Later, on April 14, eight food baskets were delivered. The food baskets were prepared, as far as possible, based on the stated needs of the recipients.
Members at Zion Seventh-day Adventist Church are grateful to the Lord for using them in this way to be a blessing to others, as they work together in the service of the King.
