Kids Club Volunteering Opportunity

Kids’ Club is an after school program run by the Kingsley UM Church in conjunction with the Second Harvest Food Bank.  The Club provides homework help, activities, and a hot meal five days a week.  Kingsley has been running the program for three years and needs more volunteers to handle the increasing volume of kids.  The number of mostly grade school kids range from lows of about 25 to highs of about 70.  Most kids are students at Emmerson Gridley Elementary School.  Our church is offering to provide three adult volunteers every Monday (from 3:30 - 5:30PM) that there is school plus six Mondays during the summer. To do this reliably we need a pool of 6 to 8 volunteers to draw from. Volunteers will need state child abuse clearances.  To be part of the volunteer pool please see Donna Parkinson who is our church’s Kids’ Club coordinator.  
College Dinners

College Spagetti Dinner
Our final spagetti dinner for the 2015-16 year was held Thursday, April 29th.  We are thankful to all who helped make this past year's outreach to college students successful.  Dinners have given students a chance to socialize, meet our members and Pastor, and learn about our church's ministries.  We are also thankful for the students and wish them well in their future endeavors!
