Connect @ Church - Love God Love Others!
This month we’re focusing on love by loving God and others, and we’ve got another great way for you and your family to Connect at Church. This month Ark Kids will be having a canned food drive to help the Montgomery County food bank. What better way to show love to others than to help those in need? Jesus tells us in the book of Matthew that whenever we help someone in need we are helping him, that’s a great lesson to teach our kids about showing love. Many of us have grown used to seeing the same cans in our pantry, but for some seeing a pantry full of food may be something they never thought could happen. It may even be something that they’ve been praying for, and by showing them the same love God has for us; we can help God answer their prayers. This is a perfect opportunity to talk to your kids about helping those in need, maybe even take them to the grocery store with you and let them pick out the food themselves. The more you let your child be involved in the process the better they will understand what it means to love others. Then just bring your canned foods to any of our drop off boxes outside Red, Purple, Blue, or Access, and let them put it in the box. Teach your kids that showing love to others doesn’t have to be something big and flashy, it can be as simple as giving a can of corn to someone who is hungry.
