2016 Children’s Ministry Christmas Outreach
This year the children of FGBC will be ministering to the kids at Bridge of Hope children’s home in Vandale, Arkansas. There are currently 10 children who live there.
There are 4 ways that you can help our children with this ministry.
1) Pick a child’s name from the tree in the main hallway and fill their stocking (small toys, candy, coloring books, etc.) and purchase one gift for this child. (Please pick up your stocking from Samantha Riddle or Amy Fisher). Stockings and gifts should be at the church by Wednesday night, December 21st.
2) The children will be visiting the children’s home to present the stockings and gifts to the children on Thursday afternoon, December 22nd. They will also stay to get to know the children by playing games, crafts, etc. If any child, youth, adult, or family would like to go to visit with the kids with us. Please let Amy Fisher know as soon as possible.
3) The home is also always in need of many of the basic necessities such as paper towels, toilet tissue, napkins, Kleenex, cleaning supplies, body wash, shampoo, deodorant, etc. If you will help by donating these items, please place them in the designated box in the foyer.
4) The children will be hosting a “New Year with a new Friend Celebration” on Wednesday night, December 28th at 6:30pm. This night will include party/snack foods, games, and the opportunity for our kids to share about their Friend Jesus with the children from Bridge of Hope. This is usually a night that we as a church use as down time to prepare for the upcoming year. The children invite you to join us as we host our new friends.
Thanks for all that you do to help our children learn how to minister to others.
