Kids Hope Meeting, August 24 at 4:45

Kids Hope Meeting
Do you love working with children?  We will have a Kids Hope Mentor meeting on Sunday, August 24 at 4:45 in the Fireside Room for both returning mentors and those of you who would like to learn about the program.  If you have one extra hour per week, you have the time to be a Kids Hope mentor.
 
 A mother of a child in the program last year said, “It doesn’t take much to touch the hearts of our children.  The simplest things are so greatly appreciated, and I think the children take away more from this more than we can ever imagine.”
 
 Do you have the time to be a friend and an encourager to a child who needs someone? Please consider volunteering for Kids Hope.You really can make a difference in the life of a child.

Volunteers Needed for God's Pantry

Volunteers Needed for God's Pantry

This is such a wonderful ministry in our community. Calvary serves at St. Luke United Methodist Church every Tuesday and Thursday. This gives us the opportunity to share God's love in a practical and hands-ons way. Sunday School Classes or individuals are needed to help with the first Thursday and third Tuesday of the month. Please contact Brian at 232-8955 or by email if you are interested in serving at God's Pantry.
