Our Outreach Ministry is Changing Lives! October 2018 Newsletter

Jaiden lives in the neighborhood around the church but had never been inside.  His mom heard about our summer camps at East Bethlehem and brought him every day for the 5 weeks and his family went to all the field trips too. They could not believe it when Jaiden received a new backpack, uniform and shoes and were so so grateful! He is now enrolled in our CKC Tutoring program and the most exciting thing is every week Jaiden is in our Sunday morning CKC Sunday school and his mom is in church! God is at work and we praise Him!

Connecting Kids to Christ (CKC) tutoring provides children with an encouraging environment where children can learn, have fun and make progress.  A new online practice program makes tutoring even easier. It doesn't replace the one-on-one tutor-student engagement but makes practice colorful, competitive and exciting. Everything you need is provided and carpools are available. Tutors will tutor the same child throughout the school year.   For more information about our tutoring program CLICK HERE or contact Pat at pats@giftsforallgodschildren.org.

Teaching Kids to Read Words and the Word - Engage

The lives of children and families are being impacted through a partnership in Detroit.

Wow! What a Summer it Has Been.

We thank the Lord, our faithful donors and our faithful volunteers See List for helping us make the summer of 2017 so special for so many children.  Among those children were Da'Vierre & Brice.  They are cousins who attended Wildwood Ranch for the first time this year.

 

Macy, a single mom, struggles to provide for her son, Da'Vierre and her nephew, Brice so they've never been on any vacation. After they knew they were registered for camp, they were so excited. Every Sunday at church their question was the same: "How many more days before we can go to camp?" Two weeks before camp, they received all their camping gear from GFAGC: a sleeping bag, beach towel, flashlight, water bottle, a Bible, notebook and pen. Unable to contain their excitement, they kept jumping up and down shouting. Da'Vierre asked, "Is all this for me to keep . . . forever?" When they returned, They were asked to share their favorite part of camp. Brice just kept saying, "Everything, everything . . . but probably the horses and riding them was the best!" Da'Vierre said that he had never ever seen so many stars in the sky! Both boys are eagerly anticipating and hoping that they will be able to go again next year.  Macy has thanked us several times for this wonderful gift for her boys. What a blessing this camp scholarship was for these two nine-year-old boys.

Summer Blessings

Da'Vierre and Brice are not the only children blessed by God through Gifts For All God's Children during the summer of 2017.  With your help, we provided:

  • Wildwood Ranch Overnight Camp Scholarships for 17 children

  • weekly "CKC Sundays" with an average of 32 children attending! 

  • Transportation for 21 children to A2E Sports Camp

  • 2 weeks of Bible Camp for 157 children See Pictures

  • Professional photo packages for children attending Bible Camp

  • Family Field trips to a Tiger Game; to Greenfield Village; and to Metro Beach

  • School Supplies & Backpacks distributed to 850 children at 23 sites  See Pictures 

  • Backpack Jamboree at CKC Center for 149 children and adults  

  • School Shoes for 146 children  See Pictures

  • School uniforms 

New relationships are being established and existing relationships are being strengthened as we share the love of Christ and meet needs.  

Are You a Part of God's Plan for "CKC" Tutoring?

Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00-5:30 at East Bethlehem  

 

The results from last year's tutoring are in and they are spectacular. Report cards came in with A's, B's and Honor Rolls. Test results show that 93% of our students moved at least one full grade in reading and vocabulary and two students moved two full grades! Not only are the students flourishing academically, but they love tutoring.  "I'm learning more at CKC than at my Academy and I'm having fun. Here, I have an adult to help me two days a week. I'd rather be here!"  See Pictures

 

Is God calling you to be a part of His plan for CKC Tutoring?  We still need 17 tutors, especially on Tuesdays.  For more information Click Here or to volunteer contact susang@giftsforallgodschildren.org
