Bags of Love - Many hardships are faced by children taken into custody by CPS.  Their whole environment is in upheaval and a touch of love is often needed to help them through such a time.  Members of the Anderson church regularly make quilts and add them to many nice items (stuffed animals, etc).  These items are placed in a kid-friendly bag and taken to the local authorities who give them to the children when they are facing this tough time.  We have received positive feedback from parents later saying their child was grateful to have such items during that time.  Our goal is to provide a token of love through these bags - Bags of Love!


Children's Ministry- Each week classes are provided on Saturday mornings at 9:30am for children.  Ages go from 0 to teens with interactive classes, singing and crafts.  See the greeter as you come into the foyer for more information.  ALSO: An interactive story time is provided during the worship service each week, along with activity boxes during the sermon time.  In the Fall we have a Fall Festival for families (goodies, bounce house, games, etc.) and have had Youth Night once per month.
