Being in Children's Ministry has opened our eyes and made us realize how much of an impact we can make on the lives of children not only each Sunday, but each day. We decided that we wanted to take this impact, and move it out into the community! The bible tells us in James 1:27, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless, is this: to look after orphns and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." We've decided that we are going to take this bible verse, and this incredicble impact we each have, and use it to reach and help children placed into the foster care system. EVERY DAY 1,200 children enter the foster care system in the United States. These children are at the most vulnerable moments in their lives and we believe it is very important to show them the love and support that each and every single one of them deserve. We are fundraising for the Sweet Case Program that Together We Rise puts together in order to raise money to buy duffle bags for these children. Unfortunately, they are only given one trash bag to carry their belongings in when moving from home to home, and we strongly feel that they deserve so much more than that. Our goal for this fundraiser is to raise at least $1000. 100 percent of the donations we receive will go towards the purchase of these duffle bags. They will be decorated and filled (with a brand new teddy bear, blanket, coloring book and crayons) by our very own Children's Ministry students, and delivered to a local agency in our area. We feel like this is an excellent way to help our children understand how truly blessed and fortunate we all are, and to allow them to use this experience to give back and help others in need. If you can donate any amount, we would great apprecite it! Thank you for taking the time to not only help others in need, but to help give RSKids the oppurtunity to give back to our community and be a blessing to other children. This will be a life impacting outreach that they will remeber for years to come.
