Dear Parents/First Cary church family,
The ROCK is doing a mission project for the month of August. For the next four Sundays (August 3, 10, 17, 24), we will be collecting items or money to make School Kits for our Mighty Mondays outreach. Mighty Mondays, a mission of First Cary, reaches out a hand of friendship to our immediately local community by helping children enhance their learning skills through homework assistance. This past year we served 30 children, many of whom spoke Spanish as their first language. Many of these families struggle to purchase school supplies, so it is helpful for our families to pick up some extra items (as you are able) when shopping for your own family’s back to school needs. Use the tax free weekend to help your dollars go further! Or just donate money, if you prefer us to do the shopping for you. The Children’s Ministry team will assemble the School Kits the week starting August 25th – let us know if your family wants to come in and help, we had a fun packing party last year!
Here is a list of items we are collecting. Please send items you wish to donate to Sunday school with your child on August 3, 10, 17, & 24.
- Glue sticks
- Boxes of 24 crayons
- Boxes of 12 colored pencils
- No. 2 pencils
- Safety scissors (appropriate for grades 1-3)
- White erasers
- Small calculators
- Plastic rectangular pencil box that will hold one each of the above items
Thank you for sharing the heart of Christ with the heart of Cary!
The Children’s Ministry Team
