Children Giving to Children (Focus, Dec 2016)

01.31.17 | Preschool

    Throughout the year, the children and the families of the Weekday Ministries program participated in a variety of mission projects: 

    October – Canned Food Drive 

    In October, we collected 275 cans of food to give to those in need at our annual canned food drive for Clear Lake Food Pantry. 

    November – Operation Christmas Child 

    Just in time for Christmas, the children of Weekday Ministries filled 88 boxes with surprises for the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child program. After the children collected and surrounded the boxes, they had a praise time as songs of love to God were sung before the children prayed over the boxes. We had a chapel lesson about thankfulness, and about being the hands and feet of Christ. It was the perfect way to begin the holiday season! 

    December – Angel Tree 

    Our December project was to collect stocking stuffers for the Angel Tree Ministry, a church wide ministry that helps to fill the needs and desires from children of incarcerated parents at Christmastime. The children and their families provided enough stocking stuffers for all of UBC’s Angel Tree children.
