When parents visit the Grove Christian Outreach Center to apply for food, clothing, and financial assistance, their preschool-aged children often tag along. Understandably, these children become restless as they wait for their parents to go through an interview and complete all the necessary paperwork.
Recently, Children's Ministry found a way to turn that time of waiting into an opportunity to share the good news of Jesus. Our preschool and elementary children collected supplies and created activity bags to entertain Grove children as they wait. Each bag was filled with a Bible storybook, bookmark, crayons, a bible-based activity book, and a personalized "We Care" card. All together, $ 615 was raised for this project. Thank you to all who were involved! Stay tuned for other family-friendly mission opportunities within Children's Ministry.
