MOULTRIE — The “Dare to be a Daniel” ministry closed it’s second class recently with an appreciation salad supper.
This supper honored all the challengers, parents and the boys of the class for their participation and support of the ministry during this year.
The affair was held at Mother Easter Baptist Church with financial support from Steve Reynolds and members of the Nehemiah Lodge #138.
The program consisted, in part, of the youth on parade. The welcome was given by Javoris McIntyre.
Some reflections on messages given by their challengers were from Cameron Carr, who reflected on the lesson given by the Rev. Martin Kohn and Muzzy Jackson on “Developing Positive Attitudes.” Justin Brinson gave reflections on the lesson given by William Cason on “Today Decides Tomorrow.”
Another group of youth recited their character poem titled “The Guy in the Glass.” Those of this group were Khalyn Jelks, James Willis, Justin Brinson and DaFene Brown.
The main speakers for the occasion were R.J. Taylor, whose topic was “If It’s to Be, It’s Up to Me,” and Randy Palmore whose topic was “Choices and Consequences.”
The second class consisted of 27 members on roll, with an average attendance of about 12. Parents also attended the classes and were included in the program activities. They seemed to enjoy them as well as the youth.
Special recognition was given for perfect attendance and outstanding work with school projects.
All of the youth were given certificates for participation.
The third class will open on Sept. 13. Any boy, between the age of 8 - 16, in the community are encouraged to attend.
