Right now in Georgia there are over 13,000 children in the foster care system. Every single week The United Methodist Children’s Home (UMCH) turns away 30-40 children from being placed with our agency. Our child welfare system in Georgia is in crisis; the need has never been greater, and we need YOUR HELP! We are encouraged because of the love churches all across North Georgia show our children and families, and because we know that together, with God’s help, we can bring transformative, healing grace to a hurting world.
That’s why we’re offering a free, fun way to connect your Vacation Bible School (VBS) children to the wider mission of The United Methodist Church. The UMCH “Kids Helping Kids VBS Mission Kit” works with any VBS theme and gives your children a hands on way to help other children from right here in North Georgia. The kit will help you:
- Teach your children about empathy and compassion
- Teach your children about stewardship
- Help your children understand the needs of other children in the community
- Raise funds for The United Methodist Children’s Home through fun, easy to implement ideas
- Create a new generation of Christian supporters for UM agencies and causes
Our Kids Helping Kids Mission Kit is flexible, works for any size church, and can be customized to fit your needs and resources. The kit includes:
- A implementation guide with suggested prayers and daily Mission Moments
- A sample Power Point goal slide to display your progress toward your goal
- An informational letter and email to send to parents prior to your VBS explaining the mission
- Fundraising ideas and “how-to” implement them with no hassles
- A template for a certificate of participation for each child who participates
