KIDZ AT HEART NEWSLETTER
Year-End Giving
Children long to be loved. They want to be engaged through play, reflection, and conversation. This is true of their greatest longing…Jesus.

Pray, Pray, Pray! God is our great provider and he is showing himself faithful yet again. Our year-end goal is $150,000 which will help us impact the hearts of 300,000 children worldwide!

Our Lord has been gracious, and we have only $35,000 to go!

So, let’s give generously, for great joy comes from great giving!

From all across North America…children’s ministry leaders are gathering to explore spiritual formation for children. Join the online community Connecting Children with God as we discuss how kids can enjoy Being Comfortable Alone with God on December 13 at 10 a.m. (MST).

KidZ Short-Term Team Leader

God is working on the hearts of many men and women in Romania. We met a new pastor, Pastor Christian, who had previously declined the first offer of training. He quickly called his friends in Iasi and told them about the KidZ at Heart training. God is moving in Eastern Europe and opening doors for his workers.
