Students from Redwood Christian High School’s Interact Club Minister in His Name in the Community

One of the reasons families send their children to RCS is to develop a Spirit of Patriotism and Community Involvement (1 Peter 2:13-17). Preparing for the December 13 party, Redwood Christian High School students wrapped presents for the Castro Valley Rotary Club’s Children’s Christmas Party for children living mostly in foster homes or family shelters. They also ministered to the party guests at the party by providing fun activities for the children, including making balloon animals, face painting and serving in any capacity necessary. Students who shared the love of Jesus with the children were RCHS InterAct President Sonja Chen, RCHS InterAct Secretary Abigail Diaz, Christine Lum, Abe Dereje, Joshua Grant, Daniel Masis and Eric Parker.

We are so blessed by the unselfish service of our students!
