NHS Students Make a Difference at KARM
TKA National Honor Society is comprised of 10th-12th graders with at least a 3.75 GPA and faculty recommendations based upon character and attitude. The NHS chapter at The King’s Academy, led by Mr. Andrew Fultz and Mr. Ryan Moulden, recently visited the local homeless shelter in Knoxville run by Knoxville Area Rescue Ministries (KARM).
TKA student NHS members were given the opportunity to serve in various ways while at KARM. The students prayed over hundreds of beds where the homeless residents sleep and left them encouraging notes filled with Bible verses or short prayers; the notes were left on each bed pillow. In addition, TKA students swept the courtyard where the residents stay during the day. There, the students interacted with them by listening to their stories and being friendly to them. Lastly, the students played the piano and led worship songs with the residents who had went into the KARM chapel to escape the deluge of rain that day. While the students were leading worship, one of the men dropped to his knees and extended his arms to the heavens praising God.
By the end of the trip, all of the students could say they were moved by the stories from the residents at KARM as well as the grace of God in their own lives. Thank you, KARM, for giving our students the opportunity to serve. And, thank you NHS members for giving your time and energy to be the hands and feet of Christ.
