2023 is calling already! Will you answer?

When we opened the doors of Blessings for Children in January 2019, our mission was “to meet the needs of children in our community while encouraging and developing Christ-centered and church-involved relationships with their families.” Our mission remains the same, but to keep that mission-focused and fresh, our ministry is looking for someone to lead us onward starting in 2023. This ministry is thriving and growing. It meets our community’s needs with a committed and gifted group of volunteers and a church family that encourages our mission with their faithful and generous support. But now, it is time for someone else to step into the oversight role. Every successful ministry needs a point person, and with your gifts and skills, your passion and enthusiasm, and your guidance and ideas, Blessings for Children can continue to do the God-directed work that is needed. Is God nudging you to do something new, something different for Him and His children and yourself? Please contact Mary Jane Robertson, (850) 499-6173 or mjr53@cox.net to see how that nudge will bless you and others!

If you would like to join us in helping our area’s children in need at Blessings for Children, here are some ways to consider:  
Please pray for the ministry and all who participate. Be on the lookout for families you can refer to us for assistance.

Consider donating items we distribute to the children: diapers (size 4, 5, and 6 in particular), pull-ups, wipes, school supplies, children sized t-shirts, socks and underwear, children’s toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, lice treatment kits, and toilet paper. A complete list of items we distribute can be found at shalimar-umc.org/blessings-for-children. You can donate items by stopping by the #10 2nd Street house behind the church any Wednesdays from 11:30am - 3:30pm.

Children’s bibles, bible stories, and activity books are always a joy to receive and distribute. Spanish language Bibles are always needed!

A financial gift designated to Blessings for Children through the church allows us to replenish the needed items we distribute weekly.          
New volunteers are always welcome, with no regular commitment required.
