Once a month for the past 5 years the Maple Leaf Clubhouse fills with students ranging from kindergarten through high school; all learning about who Jesus Christ is through their monthly Bible Club. While the rest of the Tuesdays are focused on completing homework and building relationships between students and volunteers, the last Tuesday of the month is focused on building our relationship with Jesus.

The commitment of the Maple Leaf volunteers range from high school students through retired teachers and everybody in-between.  Volunteers from St. Paul’s Methodist Church, Calvary Pres and True Life Church, come together to sow seeds of love and hope into the lives of over 30 students each week. Whether the volunteers have been coming out since the beginning or just started this year, everyone comes with their God given talents and uses them to bless the children of Maple Leaf. 

This past Tuesday the older students were introduced to “Bible Sword”. With the help of the volunteers, each student had a bible and as Tom explained a particular verse, the students then had to race to find the verse in the bible. Some more competitive than others! It was fun to watch and the kids not only were looking up bible scripture, but they were given time to learn and talk about it. A HUGE thank you to all who made it out!

 

Step of Faith is blessed to support Pastor Santo Garafalo and New City Fellowship in Atlantic City. We have been partnering with him for 9 years and have been involved first-hand through summer mission trips and various projects during the year. Please watch this video and consider partnering with us through a financial donation [monthly or one-time] to help Pastor Santo continue to do what the Lord is calling him to do in Atlantic City. Thank you!

This past week was our 6th Maple Leaf Christmas Party!

Thank you to all the volunteers who came out, prepared, cooked, made and loved on the kids again this year. A big thank you to St. Paul’s Methodist Church for the beautiful knit hats and big candy filled Christmas balls for each of the kids.

It is always a blessing to see so many churches come together and bless the children, especially at Christmas!

Thank you and have a blessed Christmas season!
