September Offering

During chapel each week, our children will be invited to bring an offering. A big part of learning about God's love for us is learning to love and care for others as well. These offerings that we are inviting our children to bring will be a way for our children to learn that they are never too young to serve and to help others.

September is NICU awareness month. We know many of our families already have gently used newborn and preemie items that your children can offer. Please do! Talk with your child about why he/she will be taking those items to chapel. We only ask that items be in gently used or new condition. We have also provided a list of suggested items for ideas.

Don’t have any baby items at home? Not to worry! Your child could also draw a picture and include some words of encouragement for families in the NICU.

Be on the lookout in our newsletter each month for the next offering!
