Christian Fellowship by Nathan Swaim The month of May is coming up real close. That means May baskets! The Christian Fellowship group knows this, and they make them every year. For the last five years the Christian Fellowship Group at GMG has taken May baskets every other year to the Toledo or Gladbrook nursing homes. They try to go as close to May 1st as they can. In their baskets they make cards and fill the baskets with chocolates, and other types of candy. Four to five students go door to door to spread God’s love and brighten their day. It is one of their favorite activities, and they enjoy helping spread the word of Christ and happiness.
