Children’s Mission Projects
Mission is very important in our church. The children truly enjoy participating in monthly children’s mission projects. Each month we have a mission project which includes a “ hands on” mission activity related to the monthly project, so that children can gain a better understanding of each mission opportunity. The children collect backpacks and school supplies during the summer, then pack the bags for area foster children; they collect food for Crisis Ministries for families; they purchase and collect winter clothing for local children in need; they send cards to church members on holidays, and to residents of the local nursing home; raise money for Souper Bowl of Caring campaign; raise money to sponsor students in Haiti; and participate in the Shoes-That-Fit campaign supplying new shoes to local children.
A special midweek enrichment program is an innovative Christian “Kids Club” that meets on Wednesday from 5:00–7:30pm for twenty-four weeks, September through late March. There is a different theme each week and many activities, including dinner, which relate to the theme. The program invites children from preschool through grade five to participate in a variety of activities and experiences. The children participate each week in the following: Bible study, worship skills (choir), family time dinner hour, arts and crafts, and playtime. The children also participate in mission projects including making lunches for the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, sending cards to members of the military, and packing care kits for Haiti. Our focus is on teaching children that each one is a child of God, and on building positive relationships between children and adults, as well as among the children. This program is open to all children in the community.
