Solving “Human Puzzles”

How do you solve a “Human Puzzle”? TOGETHER! In our evening program recently, during the Game Station time, our small groups were instructed to stand in a circle facing one another. Then, they were asked to reach across with their right hand and take someone’s hand (not next to them). They did the same with their left hand with someone …

Pottery Lounge Fun!

A few weeks ago, the great folks at the The Pottery Lounge hosted a paint night for our RHK teens. The hardest part was trying to decide which of the many great pieces they each wanted to pick out to paint. Once they made their choices, the creativity began to flow. They concentrated and worked diligently on their projects. You …

Volunteer Appreciation Dinner

We had a wonderful time celebrating our incredible team of volunteers last Thursday night. Our RHK Volunteer Appreciation Dinner was held at Central Christian Church. The theme was “My Lighthouse – Let Your Light Shine” and featured a delicious meal, words of encouragement from some of our “veteran” volunteers, and even a sing-a-long. We are so blessed to work alongside …

Easter Event Night

Since our kids were on Spring Break the week before Easter, we waited and held our Easter event night last Wednesday instead. After dinner, they divided into groups and rotated around five different stations. At one station, they found a partner and used plastic Easter eggs to play an egg toss game. There was much laughter and suspense as they …

Warm Blanket Giveaways

Each month throughout the winter, we give out blankets to our kids. They get excited every time and enjoy picking out the right color and pattern; bonus points if it is extra cushy and soft. Some of our kids simply enjoy getting something new and cozy. However, the reality for many of our kids is they need more heat in …

Skateland Field Trip

Our kids got to go to one of their favorite places last Monday – Skateland! It took awhile to figure out how to stay upright on their skates, but they kept at it and improved as the evening progressed. Some needed a little extra help and it was heartwarming to see our volunteers come alongside the kids to support (literally) …

A Ball at Rock N Bowl

What a night! This year’s Rock N Bowl fundraiser event on March 16 was the best yet. More than 80 people came out to Park Lanes Bowling to bowl or root for their favorite team – all to support RHK and show love for our kids. In addition to bowling, there was a 50/50 raffle, a wide variety of raffle …

Music Academy Fun!

Our kids enjoyed a fun music lesson last Wednesday in our evening program, thanks to Laura Eakman of The Music Academy. Laura, our special guest speaker, introduced the children to the violin and did some fun demonstrations with the kids. Then they were shown how to hold the instruments and got to play them. Do we have some future virtuosos …

Valentine’s Event Night Fun!

On Wednesday, February 14, our RHK kids celebrated Valentine’s Day with a fun event night. Each child was given a different colored wrist band when they checked-in to show which group they would be in for the night. The groups then rotated to various stations together throughout the night. Four stations featured different games – like Valentine’s Day Bingo, a …

Thank You for Caring!

We are humbled and grateful for the tremendous outpouring of love and support RHK received from our community making this Christmas extra special for our kids and teens. Huge thanks to all …
