This week I took a few moments to check out the construction in our Children’s Wing. I’ve been watching with great excitement as these improvements have come together throughout this project, and I have been so pleased to see the ideas of Mister Mark and the Children’s Council come to fruition. As we were raising funds for this project, we also decided to think about the children in our community who might not have the ability to attend our wonderful Children’s Academy. To put our stewardship theology to work in this process, we decided to set aside 10 percent (a tithe) of all donations to the Children’s Wing Expansion to help support the Women & Children’s Interim Housing Center at the Presbyterian Night Shelter. So far this year, we’ve raised $141,683 for the Children’s Wing Expansion, and this week we will deliver a check for $14,168 to Presbyterian Night Shelter to assist children living in need in our community. Thank you for being part of this First Church generosity as we share our blessings with others.
