Holy Week at Cherry Street

The week leading up to Easter is a special time at Cherry Street! During Holy Week, our children learn about Jesus’ amazing gift to each one of us. Our bible teachers prepared hands on lessons for the children to learn of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, his death, and his resurrection.
The children receive Easter baskets as part of the Holy Week celebration.

Happy Valentines Day!

The new revised standard version of the Bible references Love 317 times in the Old Testament and 221 times in the New Testament. Let’s remember to look to His word, for guidance and understanding. Please know that you are loved! He loves us no matter where we are in our walk with Christ. First Corinthians 12:4-8 “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

Good news! No, great news!

Our God is a mighty God! We met our $50,000 Fundraising challenge!!! You have made such an amazing impact on our ability to provide quality facilities, loving staff, and enriching activities to the children here at Cherry Street. Our community and contributors have always been so supportive of our mission and ministry and we want to send out a HUGE thank you to our Main Street busi-ness partners and their customers that helped contribute to our “Hands and Feet” fundraising campaign. We re-ceived nearly $1,500 in donations from the following busi-ness partners: Save-a-Lot, G&W, Consignment, Comforts of Home, Talk of the Town, Opies, Grain Bin, Feathered Nest, Love Shack, and Play Makers. G&W even held a con-test among the staff to see who could sell the most “Hands and Feet”. Char Wells won first place! Chanute is an amazing community and we feel the LOVE!
