Kids Do!- Family Summer Service Project

We’ve been talking a lot at LCC about “KNOW. GROW. DO.”  The “DO” component includes reflecting God’s love by serving others.  Many of us want to teach our children to serve, but organized opportunities where young children can participate are limited.  This summer we started an initiative at LCC called “Kid’s DO!”, where families can serve together.

On July 28, families from LCC served at Second Harvest in Nashville.  The service program at Second Harvest provides an opportunity to learn more about hunger issues followed by sorting food for Second Harvest’s Emergency Food Box Program or packing backpacks for the Children’s Backpack Program.

Volunteers helped sort and box donations that will be sent to over 400 partner agencies in Middle and West Tennessee. 
Volunteer duties included:
*Bagging and boxing bulk food products such as cereal or produce
*Filling bags for programs like the Backpack Program
*Sorting, weighting, and boxing dry goods or perishable food items
*Cleaning
This is a fantastic family service project!  Be watching for more Kids Do! opportunities next summer!

Children’s Ministry: New Christian Class

This month we introduced a new class for students who have recently become a Christian.  Our goals:

  • walk through scripture with the students to make sure they have a true understanding of what their decision means
  • help them answer the question, “So now I am a Christian, what do I do now?”  We discussed answers such as prayer, memorizing scripture, sharing their testimony, and reading the Bible.
  • explain the Lord’s Supper and baptism
  • help them understand that their salvation is a free gift from God.  The decision they have made to become followers of Christ is a big deal and something to celebrate!

We will offer this class once every six months.  Be watching for announcements about our next class in January!
