Pictured, students were taught to worship by Katie HoUander of Devoted Ministries using only two sticks, a bit of music and a heart for God. No eyes were poked out, and no lights were broken, anda lot of people realized that when given an opportunity to do something unique, children are capable of doing some pretty impressive things. Other worship activities included singing painting praying sign language, actions and drama.
