2015: Hope Ministries Shoe Challenge
Timothy Christian School places an importance on service in God's world. The picture below shows the beginnings of a shoe collection effort to support Hope Ministries in Des Moines. Mrs. Johnson challenged the students to fill the back of her office.
2016: TC Chicken Challenge
$1 = 1 Chicken
Timothy Christian students gathered donations to purchase chickens through World Renew as a service project during the Thanksgiving to Christmas break time period. The TC Education Committee continuously tries to find ways to provide service opportunities for students grades Kindergarten through eighth grade. To spur the students on, a barbecue chicken dinner with all the fixings and additional prizes was going to the classroom with the highest average raised per student. In the end, the students raised $1,674 for World Renew and the Chicken Challenge was a success! Great job TC students!!
The 5th/6th-grade classroom won the Chicken Challenge and the chicken dinner prize! Congratulations!
They steadily brought in donations over the course of the challenge and won by an average of $0.25 per student over the 7th/8th-grade classroom.
The 7th/8th-graders came in with a flourish of donations the last morning of the challenge. It was exciting to watch them gain ground on the 5th/6th graders. In the end, the final averages were so close, they were invited to be part of the chicken dinner prize as well. Great job!
