Children vs Teens Challenge for Jeremiah's Hope

Every year, the children's ministry works hard to raise funds for Jeremiah's Hope, a ministry in the Ukraine to children. Last night, Andrew Kelly made his annual visit to Kingwood CofC and gave us an update about all the ways that God has worked in Ukraine this past year.

This year, we will be raising funds to stock a closet in the new Rescue Shelter ... a short-term placement facility for children who have been removed from their families. The children arrive without any of their basic needs. So, the special closet in the Rescue Shelter will be stocked with clothes, toiletries and other essentials for these kids.

What to do:
Pick up a folder from Shannon or Kevin. Fill up the folder with quarters or cash. Return to Shannon or Kevin. For every $10, that child's ministry gets 1 point. This is CHILDREN vs TEENS. Whoever raises the most money, WINS!!! You may fill up as many folders as you want with quarters. Contest ends February 26, 2012.

Ways to help:
1) Adults may help the children or teens win by donating quarters or cash. Just give it to a child in that ministry and make them promise it will go into their cards.
2) We DO NOT want pennies, nickels and dimes this year. It's too much to roll. Convert it to cash at CoinStar or your bank and then bring it to us!
3) We DO TAKE cash or check! We don't have to roll those!!!
4) See the Jeremiah's Hope website, Kathi Marsh, Suzannah Gabriel, Shannon Rains, or Andrea Darby if you want additional information on how to give to Jeremiah's Hope.
