It Only Takes ONE as We Begin
Our Second Year of Partnering
with the Boys and Girls Club

It just takes one person to make a lasting
difference in the life of a child.  You can be the
person to make a positive difference in the life of
an at-risk child.  In every community, boys and girls
are left to find their own recreation and
companionship in the streets. An increasing
number of children are at home with no adult care
or supervision. Young people need to know that
someone cares about them. Boys & Girls Clubs
offer that and more. Club programs and services
promote and enhance the development of boys
and girls by instilling a sense of competence,
usefulness, belonging and influence. Boys & Girls
Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow – all while
having fun. The Club is truly the “Positive Place For
Kids.”

How can you possibly make a
difference?  Easy answer:
contribute $12 to the club to
sponsor a child for the entire
school year; give one hour of your
time to support the kids as they do their homework;
give one hour of your time to eat dinner with the
kids and their families.  Simple, effective, and you
will experience the benefits of making a difference
in the life of a child.  Please contact
Pastor Miller to
find out how you can be the ONE.

Wednesday Night Supper

   An Emerging Mission
      & Continuing Partnership

WNS
e

The Wednesday Night supper program for the Boys
and Girls Club and our congregation will continue
throughout the year.  It has been a joy to get to know
our neighbors and make friends with the children in
the club.  The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Mississippi
Valley are advocates for youth and address the needs
of the whole child.  Club programs focus on character
and leadership development; education and career
development; health and life skills; the arts, and
sports, fitness, and recreation.  Working together, we
can give young people the tools and support they
need to succeed in school, be people of upstanding
character, and lead healthy lives.  It has been a great
year of getting to know our Davenport Club, and
allowing God to be at work within us—and being open
to God’s remarkable gifts to us in table fellowship.
Wednesday suppers will be served from 5:00 - 5:30
pm.  You are welcome to help serve and to enjoy the
fellowship meal with First Church friends.
