Episode 67: The Treasure of Generosity
Bible2School is thrilled to participate in GivingTuesday — a global generosity movement. On November 29, 2022, people all around the nation are coming together to tap into the power of human connection, strengthen communities, and change our world. With GivingTuesday in mind and Thanksgiving right around the bend, we’re going to hear from Kori & Lee as they talk about the treasure of giving and share some inspiring stories of kids who have shown great generosity. In this episode, you will hear practical ways of experiencing God through participating in Kingdom work!
