Books For Seniors

"Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you." Luke 6:38 NKJV

The Books For Seniors program began in the early winter of 2011 with an appeal from Jean Miller, asking each one of the church members to contribute to the purchase of a set of The Conflict of the Ages book for each senior at Highland Academy. Each set would be engraved with the name of one of the seniors. Not too long before graduation, a group of church members carefully wrapped each set of books and took it to the academy students. Imagine what a thrill it was to see the looks of pure delight on the students' faces as they opened their gift. With hugs and many thanks, they expressed sincere gratitude to the Portland SDA Church for their gift. It was such a success that we plan on doing it again for the senior class of 2012.
