Chapel Hill UMC's children collect school supplies for children in need

8/10/2011

Chapel Hill UMC’s (Northwest District) children’s group, dubbed "God's Gang," decided that during Vacation Bible School they would collect school supplies for disadvantaged children in Decatur.

Sunday School Teacher Mrs. Aileen, made a school house and the children went to work. At the VBS "Shake it Up Cafe" there was a baking contest for members of the church. Each contestant had to bake two entries -- one for the contest and one to auction off. The winner of the contest was Charlee Moore with her "Nanna's Cake."

The children collected $412 from the baking contest auction to buy school supplies.... and they did. They also asked church members to donate school supplies. All the supplies the children and the congregation collected were taken to a "Tools for School's" drop off location.

Chapel Hill’s God’s Gang leader Janiece Simpson explains, “What makes this so special is that we are a small church with average of 45 -50 in attendance each Sunday. God's Gang has 11 children who regularly attend. I believe this is a case of Little is Much!”
