Children’s Resources

In God’s eyes children are a blessing and a gift! They are filled with innocence, joy and laughter. The world can be a cruel and unwelcoming place for vulnerable children. It is our desire to show the love, support and compassion of Jesus in tangible ways to children and families that are in need of support.

“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.'” – Matthew 19:14
