KFC Celebrated Valentine’s Day at The Forum Assisted Living

By | Community, Kids for Christ | No Comments

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!!

Kids for Christ – “Sundaes on Sunday” Fun Day

By | Children's Ministries, Kids for Christ | No Comments

Ever cut up a banana and then tried to put it back together again in its peel?  Our KFC kids did justkfc-sundaes-2016 that at our “Sundaes on Sunday” formation this past Sunday and found that it was not very easy!  Lesson learned: When you cut someone down with your words and actions (like they did with the banana), it is very difficult to put them back together again.  The kids suggested we needed to use self-control when choosing our words and actions…so we played a game to practice self-control!  Each child received an Oreo cookie that they had to place on their forehead.  They had to move the Oreo from their forehead to their mouth, only using their facial muscles…no hands allowed!  It was quite a sight to see this in action!  Afterwards the kids made their own ice cream sundaes before heading home!  It was a great KFC “Sundaes on Sunday” Fun Day!
