Put Feet to Their Faith With a Project to Provide Food for Those in Need!

For the past month I've been encouraging you to involve the children in your ministry in a project to gather food for hungry children and families in your community. In every community there are families who do not have enough food. In your own church there are likely families who do not have enough food. If you do not have a food pantry in your own church, there is likely one in your community. Find out where your local food pantry is and involve the children in your ministry in gathering non-perishable food so you are able to help families in need. Make this part of your on-going ministry as hunger is something which sadly is part of far too many families everyday life. Consider some of the following ideas -

  • When you have an event for children/families "charge" and admission "fee" of non-perishable food
  • Designate a certain Sunday each month as your "Food for Families" Sunday and ask children to bring a non-perishable food item with them to church.
  • Set aside one month a quarter as your "Bringing in the Sheaves" Month and have everyone in your church bring in non-perishable food for your local food pantry.
Whatever you decide to do, make helping hungry families a regular part of your ministry!
