Christmas & Program Wish List


Here you can find items we wish for that can aid us in our youth ministry efforts, or that we need for the kids, such as Christmas gifts or school supplies. If you love to shop and take part in the giving, this is a great way to be actively involved in providing a need. Please pray about how you might be able to bless the ministry!

The Shoe That Grows

The Shoe That Grows

Thank you to all who donated! 

We exceeded our goal and raised enough for 102 pairs of the Shoe That Grows! 

Blessings to all who made this possible!

Socks & Shoes


Many of our families struggle to replace their children's socks and shoes as their little ones wear them out and outgrow them. We have created a wish list on Amazon to show the types of items we are looking for. Check out our wish list today so we can get your gift to a child in need and give them the freedom to run and play!
