GENEROUS HEARTS BLESS OUR RED SOCK OFFERING
Next Gen Kids Team
Each Christmas season our 2’s-6th Grade children save up every last penny they can find to contribute to the annual Red Sock Offering. It is our desire to continue to teach the next generation what it means to have generous hearts. This year, our kids did an outstanding job bringing their little Red Socks back to church and we were able to raise over $2,500 to send with our High School Mission Trip this coming Spring to the LA Dream Center. The High School Mission Trip team has a dedicated fund they call the ‘Special Project Fund’ that allows this team to be able to bless those in need during the trip.
On our last High School Mission trip in 2016, the Special Project Fund went to blessing an entire elementary school with paper, pencils, markers, Kleenex, glue sticks and a variety of special gifts for the teachers. Our High School students hand-wrote notes to go along with these gifts and it was such a joy to get to deliver these special ‘extra blessings’ to the teachers at the lower-income school. We never know who God will put in our path and it is always so incredible to get to hear His voice and give above and beyond. We are so proud of our children for giving so faithfully and generously and we look forward, with great anticipation, for how God will use this special offering this April.
