On Sunday June 8, 2014, WordServe celebrated the first anniversary of the FaithFULL Kids program. God has blessed us and provided not only what we have needed–a meeting and storage location, food and monetary donations, and an abundant harvest of workers to serve–but He has also provided physical and spiritual nourishment for kids in our community. Because of God’s goodness, we were able to meet (and exceed) our goals laid out for the first year of FaithFULL Kids.
Here are a few ways we have seen God at work this year:
–96 kids have received meals each week.
–In the 37 weeks of this past school year, 3,552 backpacks have been filled.
–This adds up to over $8,500 worth of food.
–There have been over 518 volunteer hours this year alone with an average of 14 volunteers each week.
–More than 220 people have been involved with an average of 6 new volunteers per week.
–Approximately 40 boxes of food were distributed during Spring Break.
–Over $23,000 has been raised to fund the program.
Our vision for FaithFULL Kids isn’t stopping with just these statistics–we have a dream to expand this program and impact even more children and families in the coming year. This Summer, join WordServe Kids each Wednesday from 10:30-11:30 AM, as we pack meals for FaithFULL Kids at Guardian Taekwon-Do and deliver to Huggins Elementary for pick-up by our FaithFULL Kids families. During pick-up, we have fun and faith-filled activities planned to help deepen our relationships with these children. This is a great way for your kids to share their faith and serve the community during the summer months! To sign up to serve or for more information, click HERE.
