Three Horizon Christian Students Raise Over 1K

During Christmas break, Heath Placek received a call from Dr. Ryan Nienaber, a chiropractor in the area. He shared that his son, Noah, and two other boys from Horizon Christian School, had spearheaded a fundraiser on behalf of Love INC as part of their class’s service project program. They wanted to invite us to receive the proceeds at their next chapel service.

Ryan shared that Noah personally selected Love INC because of his parent’s past involvement with the organization and because he believed in the mission of mobilizing local churches to help people in need. Noah and his buddies had channeled their belief in the cause of Christ and began selling candy canes and hot chocolate at school throughout the winter. That soon spread like wildfire as kids began bringing donations from home. When it was all said and done, Noah and company had raised $1,035!

At the check-giving ceremony, Principal Judi Smith remarked that “she had never seen God light them up so much. The three boys made so many sacrifices in order to fundraise, even giving up recess many times over to plan their next steps.”

Love INC is so grateful for this example of sacrificial love and generosity. It truly is a remarkable testimony to what God can do through younger up-and-coming generations.

“Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”- 1 Timothy 4:12

Thank you to Administration and teachers for creating/allowing opportunities for HCS students to learn lessons with eternal values. This is our highest purpose for sending our kids to Horizon!
