Mondays and Wednesdays are filled with excitement every week!
Rock House Kid’s is continually growing! We are always making room and changes to our evening program schedule to serve more children. Monday and Wednesday evenings we serve 1st- through 6th-grade students with wonderful, caring adult volunteers who share God’s love, truth and salvation.
We always start our evening with a hot meal. Kids function and focus better when they have full tummies. After dinner we have large group time which may include singing songs, learning a valuable lesson, or talking about upcoming activities. Then we divide into appropriate classrooms where games, crafts and fun help expand the valuable lesson just learned.
When the kids leave for the night, they are provided a bag containing 7-12 different nonperishable, individually wrapped food items to take home. Throughout the year we have seasonal giveaways such as coats, hats, mittens, and boots for cold weather, back-packs filled with school supplies, and gym shoes at the start of school, as well as bikes, blankets, flashlights, hygiene items, toothbrushes and toothpaste, etc. Every month we celebrate birthdays and at Christmas every child receives wrapped gifts and stockings.
The need to help more children is apparent. Many children explain they would be without food, basic life essentials, Christmas gifts, if it weren’t for the Rock House Kids items they receive. We are so grateful for the wonderful support our donors provide.
With God’s help and the help of the community, we can make a difference in a child’s life. Please join us in prayer for more doors to be opened and more children to be blessed!
