Look Up, Not Down

Which part of the Easter story do you come back to every year? I have one. Though I have had to learn how to sit with the lament of Friday and Saturday of holy week and not hurry into the hallelujah of “Resurrection Sunday”… I come back to the place where the two men who glowed like lightening suddenly show up in the empty tomb and say to the confused and frightened women who loved Jesus,…

Cooling down in Phoenix, Heating up at Neighborhood Ministries

We are looking for a few good people like you! We need you to help this coming year with our programs—bringing love and friendship and support to the hundreds of young people at NM. The amount of time and love you pour into a child will make a difference for a lifetime. If you are a small group leader, the child will remember your testimony of how Christ impacted your life. For those who volunteer as a driver, the child will remember the face of the one who brought them each week to Kids Club. Serve a meal with your coworkers or small group. Host a drive at your church. Mentor a teen mom. Read to our preschoolers. Teach bible lessons. Lead at the new Kids Garden Club. Tutor. Paint. Dance. Play!!!

Kids Club 2014

Our 27th annual Kids Club is coming June 16-27. Are you coming? 400 K-7th graders are coming and they are so ready for the adventure. This year’s theme, “Extreme Days: We strive, not just survive!” will have our precious children learning about their worth in God’s eyes. One thing our staff and volunteers ran into a lot this year was our children’s low self-esteem. “Does anybody really love me? Know me? Want me?” The answer to their question is an astounding “YES!!!” We want them here at Neighborhood Ministries. We love them. But more importantly, we want to show them that God loves them and sees their beauty and potential. Imagine 400 children shouting “God loves me!” every day for two weeks culminating with several being baptized at Lake Day on the 27th. This is what Kids Club 2014 is all about.
