Kids Helping Kids (and Their Families!) at FPCA

It’s a favorite tradition at First Presbyterian Church of Ambler: each year, during FPCA’s host month for the Interfaith Hospitality Network, Sunday school classes cook meals for the families staying at the church. Every child is given a job in the meal making process, and they know that their combined efforts will result in nutritious meals and snacks that will make the lives of families in shelter a little easier and brighter.

Sarah McClure, the director of FPCA’s Children and Families Ministry, sums it up this way: “During many of our Sunday school classes, we talk about how we are called to love and serve others as Jesus did, and this activity is a simple but meaningful way to do just that. The fact that they’re serving families—families with children around the same ages as them and living right here in our church—makes it even more meaningful. It makes it real and increases their awareness of the many needs of those in their local community.”

Thank you to the congregants of ALL ages who work to support families in shelter throughout the year. Without you, our Interfaith Hospitality Network would not be possible!
