As a way to honor our Lord, KidVenture held a Birthday Party for Jesus on Wednesday, December 21. Families were invited to participate in games, make ornaments, decorate cookies, and create Christmas cards for our friends at Evergreen Village. Parents and children enjoyed doing these things together and with other families. The night concluded with a time of worship which included a live nativity and Christmas carols. Families brought gifts of baby items like diapers, wipes, clothing, and gift cards that were delivered to the Baby Fold Healthy Start program.
Healthy Start connects young, at-risk moms with a Family Support Worker even before the child’s birth and includes home visits for the first 5 years of the child’s life. Diapers, wipes, clothing, etc. are consistent needs for these moms and we are excited to help the Baby Fold supply these items. Our KidVenture families had a great time providing baby items during this party to share Jesus’ love with Healthy Start. We had feedback from a mother who is a part of Healthy Start, stating that she felt that Calvary and the Baby Fold were such blessings to her and she saw Jesus through Healthy Start.
The Christmas cards were delivered to Evergreen residents on Christmas Eve during worship that night. Those residents loved them! Our Evergreen friends are a blessing to us and we love sharing Jesus with them.
