Seeds of Faith had a very inspiring holiday season filled with various activities. They sang a lot, decorated and took advantage of the holiday season to show the school’s passion for what they stand for. It was a great season for everyone.
The school organized a Christmas concert, which was held at the Christian Missionary Alliance Church in Indiana on December 10. Everyone had fun and it was a success. The students worked hard preparing for the event, and it paid off.
Marissa Bruno, a music teacher at Seeds of Faith, led the high school in singing “Christmas Lullaby”, “Tiny Little Baby”, and “All I Want for Christmas”. Students in grades one through four sang “Emanuel” and “Jesus Born on This Day.” The middle and high school ensemble performed “Ding Dong Merrily on High,” “Hope Has Come,” and “Carol of the Bells.” For the finale of the event, the whole school got together and sang “Joy to the World” as the crowd sang along. Everyone left the concert with Christmas cheer. Bruno would like to thank the CMA sound team, ie Mr. and Mrs. Lee Goehring.
Bruno also led the students in a singing event at Plum Creek Presbyterian Church, which is just around the corner from Seeds of Faith. The elementary classes originally planned to huddle together and walk the short distance to church, but ended up traveling on a hay wagon behind a tractor driven by Washington Township Supervisor Luke VanHorn.
Teachers and students were welcomed by Pastor Travis Trimble, his family and the congregation. Everyone appreciated the warm welcome and the students received a Christmas treat when they left. Back to school in the tailgate was invigorating, with everyone bundled up against the wind. At the invitation of Plum Creek, Seeds of Faith hopes to make this an annual tradition.
Seeds of Faith Academy had the opportunity to send four of the advanced art students to paint windows at Renda Broadcasting, the radio station located at Ninth and Philadelphia streets in downtown Indiana. Jeniece Duchon, Seeds of Faith art teacher, chose four of her strongest artists to attend this release: Sophia Chiu, Jade Vu, Trinity Metcalf and Katana Fulmer. Three Christmas gnomes were painted on the windows.
Kindergarten through fourth grade students made tree ornaments for the school Christmas tree displayed at the school’s main entrance and for the tree in the Kenly Insurance window, also on Philadelphia Street in Indiana. The toddler toys were collected while the ornaments were on display at Kenly Insurance.
The art students enjoyed painting and the final product showed their hard work. They worked together and had an amazing time together, laughing and painting together. When given such an opportunity, students increasingly enjoy school as they spend quality time with their teachers and friends. Seeds of Faith gives all students the opportunity to spend one-on-one time with the teacher, which makes learning even more enjoyable.
Overall, Seeds of Faith students and teachers have had a blessed holiday season.
