JGS Students Kick Off First Religion Class

Jesus the Good Shepherd School Pre-K4 students in Miss Christine Stokes and Mrs. Breanne Ingram’s class are really enjoying their first Religion unit. They started off the unit by making a class prayer cloth. The students painted their hand prints all over the cloth. The cloth helps remind them that even though everyone is different, everyone can still be friends. During prayer time, the students hold on to the prayer cloth and thank Jesus for all their blessings.
