Sophomore Setter/Outside Hitter Aubree Domsic spends her Sunday nights working with the middle school youth group at her home church Frontline Bible Church. Aubree is a part of youth group meetings every Sunday night and she also leads a middle school girl’s small group. Along with that she goes to the events and hangs out with the students, which gives her a chance to get to know them and share her faith with them.
“Aubree has been a huge part in our program not only in her athletic ability, but also as a positive example to the other players on the team. She is a great leader on our team both on and off the court.”- Coach Masselink
Gabrielle Blickley, Grace Bible’s Freshman middle Blocker has been volunteering two days a week at Campau Park Elementary. She has been a volunteer there for almost three years. While volunteering she has had the opportunity to work with both kindergarteners and 1st graders. This opportunity gives her the chance to help students that are struggling with different aspects in their lives. Most of the students that she interacts with come from single parent homes or are raised by a teen mother. A number of the kids are also around substance abuse.
Gabby is given the opportunity to share God’s love with the kids, when a lot of them aren’t received love at home. Not only is she having an impact on their lives, but they are also having an impact on her life. They are the reason that she chose to get her degree in teaching.
