Does Your Child Have a Ukraine Bank?

Our precious friends in Ukraine need your help!  As we approach Christmas, the children in Ukraine are making a Christmas Wish List. Our hope is to make their wishes come true!

During Sunday School on November 5, 2017, each St. Paul child was given a church bank with a picture of a child in Ukraine to pray for in the days, weeks, and years to come.  During November and December, your child will have the opportunity to learn more about these orphanages and to raise funds to help support this vital mission. This experience can help teach our children about the needs of others and the joy of giving. We hope your family will join us as we work to make our world a better place.

Below you will find a list of easy chores that children can do. We encourage you to have your child “earn” money for missions by completing some of these tasks. Having the opportunity to work for money gives children more ownership of the fundraiser and makes the whole experience more meaningful. We understand that your child may already do many of the chores listed below on a weekly basis without monetary reward. Simply choose a chore that is not usually part of their daily/weekly routine. Thank you for encouraging your child to help those in need. The seeds we plant in our children today will bear fruit in the future.

On Sunday, December 24, the children will be invited to come forward during the 10:55 service to place their church bank on the altar.
