A special thanks to Crete Reformed Church. Their VBS children collected Granola Bars and Juice Boxes to help us share Jesus to urban children. During the summer we provide snacks along with Bible Programs for 60 to 100 kids and homeless moms. In the Fall Lord willing we will be starting a few new programs and will need weekly snacks for up to 200 per week! We hope other churches will collect snacks & juice boxes to help us with this. It is really nice to have the snacks as a practical demonstration of Christ’s love while we teach God’s love. A special thanks to the children, their parents, Carol Milsap and all the volunteers.
Ministry Donation Boxes are available for your Church.
wE ARE IN NEED OF SNACKS, JUICE BOXES, & RAFFLE GIFTS ALL YEAR ROUND. MANY DOING A LITTLE CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE! * THESE DONATION BOXES CAN ALSO BE USED FOR THE SCHOOL SUPPLY AND CHRISTMAS TOY DONATIONS.
Saturday, June 23 – Schepel Buick/GMC Car Show.
We brought a van load of kids to the Schepel Buick/GMC Charity Car Show. Tom Van Prooyen, the owner of Schepel Buick/GMC started this charity event to aid Elim Ministries – a wonderful ministry that helps individuals with disabilities to be equipped to achieve their highest God-given potential. Elim will purchase school supplies and hire their people to put together school supply packs.
This fund raiser will enable Elim Ministries to work in conjunction with Christ Cares to provide school supplies for all the children of Ford Heights and also Wilson School of Chicago Heights. A special thanks to Bob Stine for making this possible as well as my friend Ken Lautenbach for introducing me to Bob.
