Helping the Next Family
On Saturday, April 14, twenty-four volunteers assembled in the gym at The Family of Faith – Copperfield to lift and load box upon box of furnishings for The Family of Faith – Miramesa. Some of these volunteers were parents who have students in our preschool currently. Some were parents who previously had children attending the preschool. Some were members of The Family of Faith Lutheran Church who had never had a child in the care of the preschool.
One thing that all these volunteers had in common was a hope for good things to happen at The Family of Faith – Miramesa. These generous people were thinking of other children. They were helping the next family who God will send into the care of The Family of Faith Preschool.
After paying tuition, it is understandable that parents of preschool children may think they have fulfilled their responsibilities to the preschool. And in some ways, that is true. It is also true that the preschool program at The Family of Faith is generously supplemented by the worshiping population at the church. Those who worship at The Family of Faith Lutheran Church are giving generously in order to help the next families who will attend.
You can help the next families too. On Saturday, April 28, at The Family of Faith – Miramesa we need volunteers to assemble the furniture that was previously moved. If you can possibly spare an hour, or two, to help with the major project, I, for one, would appreciate your generosity and kindness. In the end, offering our community excellent preschool services as a Christian community does take extra effort. Please keep The Family of Faith Preschool in your prayers, and if you can help put together a desk, or two, that would be great.
If you cannot help on April 28, please consider helping the next families by referring people to The Family of Faith -Copperfield, or The Family of Faith – Miramesa. We pray your child has been well served. Perhaps you have a friend, or a neighbor, or a coworker who has a young child in their care. We would very much appreciate you encouraging your friend to give The Family of Faith a look.
Finally, this coming Sunday, April 22, at 10 AM, the preschool children will have an opportunity to sing during the worship service. By allowing your child to join his/her peers in worship you will also be allowing the congregation to hear the voices of our preschool children – voices that help keep us all motivated to serve their developmental needs now, as well as helping the next family.
Thank you in advance.
