I am so excited about all that God has in store for the kids and families we will serve this fall – thank you for your faithful support throughout the year and for being part of all that Jesus is doing through FVCA!
For over 40 years, our desire has always been to provide kids and teens with great opportunities to grow in their walk with Jesus during the summer and school year. Summer camp gives us the opportunity to get kids out of their day-to-day environment and “immerse” them in the love of Jesus. God blessed us with an amazing staff team this summer and the opportunity to provide nearly 700 kids and teens with a great summer camp experience at no-cost to their families! But our ministry doesn’t end when the summer is over.
We are committed to providing meaningful programs for young kids and teens to keep growing in their faith throughout the school year. One of those opportunities is our Teen Night Together (TNT) program for middle school and high school students which will meet one night each week this fall. We pick the teens up after school and provide transportation to FVCA where they will have recreation time, dinner, a Bible discussion and a College and Career Prep lesson!
This fall FVCA will also continue working alongside Crossroads Kids Club to develop and support clubs in about a dozen schools serving low-income communities of the Fox Valley. These weekly kids clubs include a large group Bible teaching, small group discussion with an adult leader, game time and of course, a snack! This summer, we had over 125 kids and teens come to camp who attend one of the schools where the Crossroads program will be offered this fall – most of them have not participated in a Club before. This fall we will invite these young children and teens to participate in a Club and grow in their faith throughout the school year!
None of these school-year programs are possible without the generous and faithful support of you, our donor! If you have not yet made a gift toward our fall campaign please consider doing so today. Thank you so much for your great partnership in ministry!
