Our sister church to the north, North Baltimore Mennonite Church, provided our students with several gifts to bless them this Christmas season. Each MCCS family received a grocery bag filled with food. Each student received a jar of home-made applesauce and a hand-made quilt of their own! Many of our students would never have the opportunity to receive a gift as precious and beautiful as a handmade quilt. Thank you to Ruth Clemens and the congregation of North Baltimore Mennonite for ensuring that our students and their families had a very MERRY Christmas!!!
During our last chapel of the year, Krystal, an MCCS alumna shared her testimony about living in the neighborhood and how she experienced God through MCCS, her teachers and through attending Wilkens Avenue Mennonite Church.
Krystal brought a message of hope and encouragement, exhorting students to trust in God and believe that He has a plan for their lives. She assured them of God’s love for them, even in difficult circumstances, and shared about how God led her to be adopted and to enroll in a Christian college. Krystal is a student at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, Tennessee.
We praise God for the impact that our school made in Krystal’s life, and that she returned to Baltimore to make an impact in the lives of our current students!
