The leaves are changing colors and the air is growing cool again. This must mean it’s time for Kids Club at the Family ESL Program to begin! One of the many programs Serving Our Neighbors (SON) Ministries offers is Kids Club, a program dedicated to alleviating suburban poverty one relationship at a time. Here there is fun to be had, new friends to meet, and hope to share in. Each week we bring new and exciting activities to explore and creativity is always encouraged. Children attending Kids Club also learn all about the joy of serving others.
For example, this week we all contributed in making a fingerprint painting for a fellow staff member. Each child placed his/her unique fingerprint on the canvas, creating a beautiful “fingerprint flower.” All faces were ear to ear in smiles as we completed the project to give her. This was just one of many times we will come together to serve someone we are thankful for.
At Kids Club, we emphasize important values such as having a grateful heart and respecting and appreciating others. Each of us has a role to play throughout the program year, and together we make it a wonderful place to be!
