Empowering Life changes through Christ
The gathering of the entire congregation is a very important part of our spiritual lives. At First Christian Church we strive to create an atmosphere of worship that inspires creativity and passionate worship of God.
Fifty-two pairs of shoes. That’s what it took last Sunday to get First Christian’s kids ready for summer and hopefully ready for Camp Christian June 10th. Between FCC and Payless Shoe Source at Woodland Hills Mall, each child was able to choose a free pair of shoes and have them boxed up and ready for the van ride to camp.
Payless gave FCC a discount on the shoes and store employees pitched in to help the kids get
a good fit in their new shoes and also get a selection that satisfied them. Director of Children’s Ministries, Beverly Vale Brown, says the children will also get a bag of toiletry items and new flip flops to take with them to camp.
“They’re already excited to get to go to camp, but this way when they get there and meet new kids, they don’t to have to be wearing raggedy shoes. They don’t have to feel like they are less than anyone
else. They feel better about themsleves.”
Beverly said she started the “Tennis Shoe Sunday” program three years ago, when she was preparing a group of youngsters to go to church camp. The children participate in FCC’s outreach to disadvantaged youth in the Tulsa area. I just said to myself, “Let’s get these kids some decent shoes
before we get to camp. Some barely had what you could call shoes -- flip flops held together by duct tape.”
Payless Shoe Source was a key partner in this project and FCC appreciates their help.
