Geneva School students, faculty and parents descended on Boerne in February for the school’s annual “Love Thy Neighbor Day.” This is a day set aside near Valentine’s Day each year in which the Geneva Grammar School looks for ways to serve the Boerne community in practical ways.
Students visited city and county officials as well as police, fire, sheriff and EMS offices to express gratitude for all they do to protect and serve their citizens. The students also assisted several area ministries, visited nursing homes, picked up trash and swept the store fronts on Main Street.
“Our hope is that our Geneva Grammar School students develop a greater understanding of the humility and selflessness that is required of all who follow Jesus Christ (see Matthew 20:20-28). Our students did a great job of serving others and representing our school well. They put ‘feet to their faith’ and enjoyed the blessing that comes from expressing God’s love to others with action,” Grammar School Headmaster Jessica Gombert said.
