The weather this past Sunday might have been cloudy & misty, but the spirit of our KFC kids was full of sunshine!! We had 13 of our Kids for Christ (3rd-5th grade) kids gather and share a warm meal together, while they made sweet Valentine cards for the residents at The Forum Assisted Living. Afterwards, a group of parents drove the kids down to The Forum, where we all shared a heartwarming afternoon playing Bingo with some very grateful & joyful residents!
It was amazing to see the love in the hearts of the kids & residents as they interacted with one another.
One resident, Ms. Scott, didn’t have plans to play Bingo that afternoon, but came down only after being told that her young friend Ella Holbrook was there, hoping to spend the time with her! Friendships were reunited and new bonds were made that afternoon, making it a wonderful day that both the kids of KFC and the residents at The Forum will always remember!
A HUGE thank you to Violet Hutcheson, Sandra Goodwin, Cari Holbrook, Caanan Blake, and Justin Howe for helping to prepare the lunch, oversee the valentine making and transporting the kids to The Forum! We could not have done this without you!!
Come and join us Sunday, February 10, from 12:00 PM-2:45 PM, for a fun and memorable service event at The Forum Assisted Living where the kids of KFC will volunteer their time running a Bingo game for their residents! Immediately following the 10:45 AM service, we will gather in the Cafeteria for a lunch, which will be provided.

What is Formation?
Christian formation is the life-long journey that we each take as we grow in faith and become closer to Jesus. Through prayer, study, worship, and reading the Bible, we can further our path on this journey.
What is Fellowship?
Fellowship is about coming together as members of the body of Christ for support, sharing, gathering, and participating together in the life of the Church. Through fellowship we build the bonds that allow us to do the mission and ministry of the church.
