Sunday School Program
Janet Coflin of Pukalani and Suzanne Perkins of Kīhei are members of the Sunday School Teaching Team. Janet and Suzanne have announced that the children of the Sunday School Program of Keawalaʻi Congregational Church will be sponsoring a child through World Vision.
Word Vision is a Christian Humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities worldwide to reach their full potential by providing hope and assistance to approximately 100 million people in nearly 100 countries.
Janet and Suzanne said, “The purpose of sponsoring a child is for our children to experience and understand how they can make a difference in another child’s life. For $35.00 a month, we will be providing nutritious food, clean water, health care, and education for a child and for his or her family and community.”
A welcome kit with a photo and information about the sponsored child plus an introductory DVD will be provided. There will be opportunities to write and receive letters, send small packages and in some cases, even email. Annual progress reports with updated photographs will also be provided.
Added Janet and Suzanne, “Our hope is by building a relationship with the sponsored child that the experience will make a lasting impression on our children to give of themselves throughout their lives.”
Members of the Sunday School Program of Keawalaʻi Congregational Church are planning two holiday activities. Suzanne Perkins, a member of the Sunday School Teaching Team, said, “We are working out the details for our holiday activities. For Thanksgiving, we would like to provide a complete meal for a family . . . and for Christmas, we would like to provide gifts for a family.”
“The gifts will be placed under our church Christmas trees on Sunday, December 16, 2012, the day of our Christmas pageant.” Each child will be responsible for one food item and one gift.
