Kids Giving to Kids

Vacation Bible School

June 2009

1st Baptist Church Kids Giving to Kids

They had such fun at Vacation Bible School. Children from 3 years old to 6th grade gathered every morning to learn Bible stories, sing songs, and have a great time during summer vacation. The first Baptist Church chose Blessing Hands kids as their fund raising project for the week.

Our kids need $2.75 to eat for one week at their boarding schools in China. For every $2.75 donated, a paper lunch bag was put at the front of the church. The kids got postcards of Yangshuo primary drawings when they made donations.

At the end of the week $98 had been given by the kids. Parents added to that until it came to $139.21.

I took their gift to the bank were the teller counted it. Some kids signed up for pen pals and others wrote on their postcards to send a letter to China. We sure do thank you, First Baptist Church of Morehead, for being blessing hands to our kids.

Kids Wanted Yangshuo Paintings

Bible School kids could "buy" Yangshuo Paintings

Instead of getting toys or stickers, some kids saved up their earned points and "bought" Yangshuo Paintings at the Roman Market.

Parents who donated $6 also got paintings. We decorated the church with the paintings that will stay up through the Sunday service.

You can join the kids to give to our kids.

You can give any amount to feed our middle school kids. Use the orange link to go to our blog where you can donate through the Google Check Out Button at the top right.
