This is a great opportunity for our children to help those are less fortunate in our community. There are multiple ways to serve within this ministry which include making lunches on Friday afternoon with a group of volunteers from our church, serving food Friday evening to those enrolled in the program and help to ensure we have all the food needed for both dinner and lunch.

If you can help in anyway please sign up on one of the two clipboards at church.

If you or your child would like to participate as a singer, playing an instrument, acting, or helping with making needed costumes or if you have any questions please contact Kathy Schallert

The children will also present a special Christmas Play for the congregation and our visitors. As these details come averrable we will provide them to you as well as the children themselves. .
