Our Mentoring Club had a wonderful and successful first year (2016-2017) and are off to a great start for the second year. We currently have ten mentees and mentors who meet for six hours a month. Mentors spend quality time making moments matter with our kids over the nine-month school year. Two of those six hours are spent at the church for Club. Club has ten devoted staff members who love working with our kids and sharing Bible stories with them. Our Club meets the third Saturday of the month where the kids start by playing games and then we hear a Bible story, make an activity and enjoy a snack.
Throughout the year we have a few special events for our Club kids. September is when we begin and each child receives the Club t-shirt and a yearly devotional. In December we have a Christmas party and Club staff goes shopping for one gift per child. May is when we end our Mentoring Club program for the year and we choose an event that if fun and exciting. In 2017 we went bowling as a group and had a pizza party. In 2018 we are planning an outing to work with miniature therapy ponies, eat pizza and ice cream, and go swimming. It is a great way to end Club and to start the summer!
