Generation SC through the years ...
GENERATION SC – loving, learning and leading
Generation SC is a student-led organization sponsored by LOGOS FIRST MINISTRY. Our desire is to be the GENERATION that seeks HIM in Psalm 24:6.
The SC has a dual meaning: Seeking Christ and Student Council.
The GENERATION SC mission statement:
LOVE: JOHN 13:35 ... By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.
LEARN: 2 TIMOTHY 2:15 ... Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately
handling the word of truth.

For nearly a decade, GEN SC has been diligently working to see a local Holocaust Memorial become a reality in the mid-south. In 2010, they learned of Horn Lake Middle School’s efforts to raise 1.5 million pennies to represent the 1.5 million children who were killed in the Holocaust. GEN SC prayed and sought the LORD’s heart to love, learn and lead in this endeavor. By 2012, GEN SC presented $4,000 of the pennies needed for Horn Lake Middle School to meet the goal of 1.5 million pennies.
Once the pennies were raised, decisions were made to memorialize the children they represented. Architect, Doug Thornton of AREC, designed the future plan for the memorial to hold the 1.5 million pennies. Sculptor and artist, Rick Wienecke - www.castingseeds.com - cast the centerpiece of the future memorial. The visual of how many children were brutally murdered will be a vivid reminder of how God's Word says we are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
As Horn Lake Middle School students transitioned into different high schools, Gen SC continued their fundraising efforts alongside the newly formed Unknown Child Foundation - www.unknownchild.org - and raised another $25,000 to purchase the first of ten maquettes cast by Rick Wienecke to raise funds for the UCF. Gen SC president, Zane Turner, presented the maquette to Mr. Jack Cohen at the Israel Fest in 2014.
After more fundraising, the Lord led Gen SC to present another Holocaust survivor, Mr. Leonid Saharovici, with a smaller version of Wienecke's sculpture in 2017. It was a very moving moment for the students as Mr. Saharovici wept in his hands, saying no one had ever done anything like that for him in his life. Mr. Leonid passed away in November of 2018. He is greatly missed.
On February 8, 2019, Gen SC hosted the "Have a Heart for Holocaust Banquet". Holocaust survivor Jack Cohen was the guest speaker. Gen SC raised $9,000 for the Unknown Child Foundation in 2019 while honoring the memories of Mr. Saharovici as well as a dear friend and former leader in Renewed Moms - Kari Coudriet - who passed away in December 2018.
On November 9, 2019... Gen SC hosted REMEMBERING KRISTALLNACHT: the 81st anniversary as survivor Mr. Warren Kramer shared his harrowing experiences on that pre-WW2 night of broken glass. Sadly, on November 13, 2019 Mr. Kramer took his last breath just a few days after our wonderful night of remembrance. None of us could have imagined that would be our last time with him. He will be greatly missed.
