Children’s Ministry Update

February 24, 2020

Thanks to our childcare staff and many dedicated volunteers and sponsors, our children have been busy! Here are just a few recent activities:

  • Art classes, led by a volunteer who is an art major at NC State – We’re seeing some talented little artists
  • “Jurassic World” show at PNC arena – generously provided by PNC
  • Hurricanes hockey game – Carolina Hurricanes donated suite tickets for kids and their parents
  • Valentine “Thank You” cards and treats for RRM staff – created and enthusiastically distributed by the children
  • Teacher workday outing to SkyZone – the kids jumped, played and “let loose” to their heart’s content

In addition, the recently renovated portion of the children’s area has been a huge hit, and the nursery and preschool just received a fresh coat of paint.

Want to help? We need new car seats, children’s bibles and other supplies. Order from Amazonsmiles and have your items shipped directly to the Mission. Commit one hour per week as a Reading Buddy or homework helper, or sign up for assistance with Teacher Workdays, Spring Break and other special days where extra hands are needed.
