These “minor” holidays have a way of sneaking up on us. So we often give a nod to those we want to honor with a quick Instagram or Facebook post. Genuine, sure. But let’s face it, we haven’t really put that much thought into it.

But this year, for Veterans Day, one of our elders, Mike Johnson, and the students and teachers at Northview Elementary School in Olathe did put some forethought into how they can honor the men and women who fought bravely on our behalf. Because of our growing relationships with our local schools, the staff a Northview reached out to Mike and asked him if they could make cards to give to veterans at Journey Bible Church. Mike readily agreed. The cards were made and then Mike had the honor of distributing them out.

Thank you Mike and the great folks at Northview for your care and generosity. Here are a few photos of men from our church with their cards.
