OK 7th grade, can I get a witness?  Specifically your witness, as you write your latest assignment.  In 200-250 words tell about a time when God did something for you in your life.  It may have been an answered prayer, help on something you had to do, or a good outcome after you trusted God with something.  Remember these witnesses often start in ‘Moses Moments’, so feel free to describe the Moses Moment you went through before describing what God did for you afterward.  It can be typed or handwritten, but must also have a cover page illustrating something about your story.  10% bonus if turned in by Wednesday 5/29; an additional 10% bonus if you read yours to the class!

OK 8th grade, the mandatory extra credit assignment is to respond to a skeptic who says that when Jesus multiplied the loaves and fishes, it was really just people sharing their lunches.  Skeptic: ‘We’ve all seen sharing before, but have you ever seen a miracle?  It’s more likely that the miracle was just people sharing food they had hidden before.’  Your response should be logical, approximately 5 sentences, and in your notebooks.  Note: if your class had a slightly different question and you did that one already, that will also get the extra credit.
