|2013/02/21||Mount Zion Baptist Church||Huntsville||AL||The GAs, RAs, and WMU groups of our church collected toiletry items (shampoo, body wash, lotion, and tissue) for several weeks. On Children's Ministry Day, the children decorated white bags and place a label on each one stating the bags were given with love from the RA and GA of Mount Zion Baptist Church. After decorating the bag, the kids place one of each toiletry item in the bag. After all were decorated and filled, we went to Valley View Nursing Home and handed the bags to each of the residents.||IMG_8870.JPG (728 KB) |

The children helped unpack and straighten items that have been donated to the store. This store helps people who have lost everything due to disaster. The items in the store are priced very low so that low income families can afford them. After we finished at the store, we went back to the Church for a snack and games.|| |
|2013/03/02||Farley Community Church GA's||Huntsville||Alabama||We actually did our project on the Wednesday night before the official Children's Ministry Day. Since it was the Wednesday night before Valentine's Day, we took the church bus during our GA time and delivered a basket of cookies, homemade valentines, tracts and information about our church to the two fire stations and the Hemsi station near our church. We made the Valentines the Wednesday before and the GA's and their Moms made the cookies during the week. When we returned from delivering the baskets, we enjoyed a few left over cookies :).|| |
|2013/02/26||Woodland Heights Baptist Church ||Conway ||AR||For Children's Ministry Day 2013, the kids from Woodland Heights Baptist Church hosted a church-wide Kids-hosted baby shower for Life Choices, our local pregnancy center. The kids used their helping hands to help prepare the food, decorate the church, and welcome our church family in as we all demonstrated our love and support to the babies and their mothers who are choosing life. Our kids also gathered around our special guest, Executive Director Maria Edwards and prayed for babies, the moms, and for the Life Choices staff as they serve Christ here in our city. It was a great reminder of the Truth found in 1 Timothy 4:12 that we continuously pour into the hearts of our kids.
The attached picture gives a glimpse of God pouring out His love on the mothers and their babies. ||Baby Shower.jpg (163 KB) |
|2013/02/10||First Baptist Church of Sherwood GA Group||Sherwood||AR||We took our group of girls to the North Pulaski Baptist Association office, which is our local association. We took a tour of the building led by Karla Whittington and found out all the different ministries that take place there. We sorted bags of clothes into different boxes for different age groups to be distributed to our local caring centers. We also made 30 hygiene kits, 15 for men and 15 for women to be distributed also. The girls understood that what they did today would reach a large number of people. We added tracts to the kits and they wrote personal notes for each bag. A time of ministry and education about the work of our association was a great way to spend our Children's Ministry Day. Thanks: Brenda Hilliard|| |

|2013/03/07||Saddle Creek Church||Little Rock ||AR||Church members provided food items (boxes of spaghetti, jars of sauce, garlic bread, boxes of brownie mix, fruit cups, hamburger meat, cans of green beans, 1/2 gal. of milk). On CMD, the the kids learned what it meant to be "Helping Hands" and the nature of our project. Then they decorated 3 boxes, packed the food in each, wrote notes of encouragement with scripture verse on front of note, and prayed for the families receiving the food. Bibles were given to two of the families (3rd did not show up). The families ministered to was recommended by the school counselor at local elementary school who also made the contacts and furnished the information to us. Our kids learned how to minister to those less fortunate and grew from the experience.||CMD 2013 (800x600).jpg (294 KB) |
