With the assistance of a Conference Fresh Expressions grant, Raymond United Methodist Church in Jennings is hosting a new Kids' Club that serves elementary aged children. The ministry provides community children with fun activities, Bible lessons, service opportunities, fellowship and a meal.
The group has grown to nearly 20, mostly fourth and fifth graders. Pictured here are the children who participated in the first night of Kids' Club. The children are shown with the prayer pillows they made. The club meetings are held on Wednesdays at the same time that the church youth group gathers.
Fresh Expressions is a grant program offered through the Conference Board of Discipleship that provides assistance of up to $500 to local churches for use in seeding new ministries. Winning projects are designed to support of the Mission, Vision and Core Values
of the Louisiana Annual Conference.
