Waughtown Baptist Church (FWBC) got a special lesson in responsibility and caring for others Saturday, Oct. 31. In a drop-by event at the front of the church at 838 Moravia St., the children showed off their new face masks and shields and displayed their understanding of pandemic protocol to protect themselves and others.  

As their teacher, Ms. Senora Boulware, posed questions about what social distancing means and why they need to wear face masks, several of the children eagerly offered the right answers:  stay six feet apart and wear your mask to keep from spreading the COVID-19 virus. 

Their responses didn’t surprise her. “My children are smart,” she said as she praised them for wearing their gear properly and taking the impromptu quiz seriously. Ms. Boulware says having personalized masks is a real source of pride, as some of the children prepare to return to in-person school where they will be wearing masks throughout the day.

After modeling their protective gear, the young scholars flashed handmade fans to encourage adults to vote! Finally, they received gift bags with candy, fruit and candy apples. Class members included Kiara Burnett, Sophia Burnett, Maxwell Harrison, Na’Diyah Little, Aubrey McCrary, Donovan McCrary, Daye Rumley, Jade Rumley, Arianna Shore, Isaiah Shore, Christiaan Simon, Skylar Simon, and Amia Williams.

The masks and shields were made for the children by Ms. Vanessa Smith. Min. Carmenita Frazier provided candy apples and Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Garrison and their daughter, Kenise, donated candy.

Ms. Boulware teaches the class with her granddaughter, Ms. Jonae Hanna. The teachers have provided materials for in-home Sunday School sessions since the church began conducting virtual services in March. 

Dr. Dennis W. Bishop is senior pastor of FWBC.
