The Sunday School holds a number of Outreach Projects a number of times through out the year. These projects give the children an opportunity to learn about the needs of others and directly participate in creating change and bringing joy to others. The Outreach Committee also hosts ‘all ages’ hands-on projects throughout the year for everyone to roll up their sleeves and lend a helping hand. Check out the calendar for upcoming Outreach Dates for this year!
Hands-On Outreach Projects include:
Outreach puts together New Mother Baby Gift Bags to go to local hospitals, which are given by the nursing staff to mothers who may need a little extra help getting settled with a newborn. The bags contain everything from diapers, to one-zies, from formula & toys to teething rings & wipes to soaps & shampoo.
Everyone is invited to attend this all church, all ages, outreach project. We will meet at the Feed My Starving Children Warehouse in Libertyville, to package and prepare for shipment nutritious ready to cook, meals for children and families all over the world. What a better way to spend time together as a church family than to feed others. Look for sign up sheets on the office door in mid January, space is limited to the first 30 volunteers who sign up. The Outreach Committee is making a donation to FMSC on each and every volunteers behalf to cover the cost of food and shipping.
