The Marble Jar
This is a great visual to show you that there are 936 weeks from birth to graduation, for the church and family to partner together as spiritual influences in your child’s life. When you count your weeks, you tend to make them count!
Here’s how to make a jar: Gather 2 large jars. Gather 936 marbles. Fill one jar with one marble for each week your child has been on this earth. Fill the other jar with the remaining marbles. Each week move one marble from the Remaining Marble Jar to the Completed Weeks Jar.
What is Hope Chest?
The offering the children bring on Sunday Morning and to Kingdom Kids is placed in Hope Chest. This special offering adds up quickly as the children bring their coins each Sunday. Hope Chest is used to help any child who is suffering a trauma in their life. It helps those children if they are children in our church family, community, city, state or nation.
Where does Hope Chest Money Saved Go?
Hope Chest was used to replace the Children’s Ministry at First Presbyterian Church, Ocean Springs, Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina. It was also used to buy replacement backpacks for children of Ringgold, Georgia, who lost school supplies during the outbreak of spring tornadoes. It has also been used to help children on the mountain after fire has destroyed their home.
God uses these coins mightily in His care for children. We are so glad our children help children when there is a need!
