Once again, Courageous Church made the holidays very special for the students at Frank L. Stanton Elementary School. On Tuesday, Dec. 15, members of the church surprised students by giving every child a toy and a school uniform for the holidays. The students were so excited and thrilled when they received their package. We heard screams of joy, laughter, and ongoing conversation about the gifts that they received. Our parents were very thankful and grateful for what Courageous Church had done again that they remained at the school after our holiday program to partake in their child’s excitement.

We say, “Again,” because Pastor Shaun King of Courageous Church, his brother, Jason King, and their members gave every child at F.L. Stanton a toy and school uniforms for the holidays last year. Pastor King volunteered as a mentor when he attended Morehouse College, so when he and his members wanted to adopt a school, Pastor King came back to F. L. Stanton School. Pastor King contacted a staff member at F. L. Stanton, Barbara Denson, who goes out and recruits mentors and tutors for F. L. Stanton, and informed her that he and his church members wanted to do something special for some special kids. And yes, those special kids were the students at F. L. Stanton School. Courageous Church became partners with F. L. Stanton last school year.
Thanks to Principal Dr. Marlo Barber for sharing the good news.
