A little about our ministry: Every Wed. night we have around 40-50 children that attend our church. This ministry is for all ages. In their classes, they learn how to be Christ like, how to show respect, manners, cooking, how to handle bullying, etc. It's very costly to keep this ministry up and going. One book per child costs $10, teachers lesson books are $20, and we also have the expenses of crafts, trips, activities, parties, lock ins, and snacks. We hold a fundraiser every year to pay for this ministry without it coming out of the church's funds or from the parents. Your support would be great! Thank you ahead of time.
