Easter Baskets for our Community Kids
Since our Easter Eggstravaganza has to be postponed, we are making Easter Baskets for 100 kids in our community! Parents can sign kids up for a basket today and are welcome to pass this sign up on to people you know who live in the area. We will also be advertising to the neighborhoods surrounding the church.
The baskets are free for families and our hope is that this is one way we can encourage each other and show the kids we love them and are thinking about them even though we can't get together right now.
We would love to have help with the cost of the baskets so we can offer them free to our community! Each basket costs us $10 including the basket, grass, eggs prefilled with candy and toys (bubbles, wristbands, cross necklace, silly putty, etc), an Easter story coloring book, a small stuffed animal, a tract and a note from COG. Plus each basket will be wrapped in a large plastic "bag" and tied at the top so it is clean and contained during delivery. We hope to deliver the baskets on April 11th.
If you have a need for a basket for a little one in your home, you can sign up
. Feel free to pass this on to friends or neighbors who live in the COG area and might want a basket. The link will stop working when we have reached 100 baskets, so don't delay!
If you would like to help with the cost of the Easter Baskets, there are a few ways to do that:
**go to our church website online giving page -- choose "Easter Baskets" in the drop-down menu**
**write a check and mail it to the church or drop it in the mailbox at the church**
If you would like to help deliver baskets, please email
Thank you for helping us with this ministry opportunity! We are excited to reach out to our community in this way.
