Coats for Kids

In our Preschool programming, we just began a 3-week series on "God Owns Everything."  We are teaching that as a response to God's ownership, we should be free to be generous, and that we should honor the Lord with our wealth (Proverbs 3:9).  We will teach through the accounts of Zacchaeus, the Rich Young Ruler, and the Poor Widow, from the New Testament.

As a application of this Biblical principle, we will be collecting money to buy coats, hats, and gloves for children in Greenville who do not have any.  More specifically, we will donate these to Pendleton Place, a local emergency shelter for children. 

If you have a child in our Preschool programming, please have him or her bring $1 to their class, and we will collect the money during our Big Group time.  As you talk about this with your child(ren), remind him that since God owns everything, we should be generous.  Since He has given us so much, then we should be generous towards others. 

If you have questions about this or anything else regarding our Preschool programming, please let us know.
