last year, we are going to "adopt" some children this Christmas season, but helping to provide them with gifts. Grace Church is working with local schools, and we (as the Children's Ministry) plan to take 15 of those children. We are going to have volunteers shop for the gifts, and we'll use the money we collect from the children in our programming to cover the costs.
We are asking each Camp Grace (1st - 4th grade) child to bring in $2, and each preschool-age child to bring in $1 sometime over the next few weeks. The money will be collected during the Big Group portion of our programming, and our goal is to raise up at least $1200, all of which will be donated to this cause. If everyone does a little, we can have a big impact. We want this opportunity to be an opportunity to worship God more, as we seek to bless others in a reflection of the grace our Lord has shown us.
