Children's and Youth/Service Ministry – March 1-7, 2018
“When are the Carson-Newman people coming back?!?!” This question is from a child who lives at the Chattanooga Children’s Home. While one week is not necessarily a long time it can certainly have a great impact! The children look forward to and count down the days until those “Carson-Newman people” come back. Thus, S.P.O.T.S. will once again partner with the wonderful ministry of the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home located in Chattanooga, TN. Missionaries will connect with and live in cottages of children with very difficult pasts and home lives.
This team will begin their experience with a weekend filled with games, team competitions, crafts, and activities with the kids. Throughout the week they will meet the kids when they come home from school. They will then get the opportunity to hang out, help with homework, share their faith, and play games. They will also share dinner with the house parents and children as well as spend each evening in the cottages until it's time for the children to go to bed.
Missionaries may take some of the children/teens on an off-campus “field trip” to participate in local area activities.
NEW THIS YEAR
- While 1-2 days of service will be held at the Chattanooga Children's Home additional, service will be done at various ministries in downtown Chattanooga.
