Each month this semester, Cherry Street children are learning an “I Am” statement. Each of these statements represents a very important message Jesus has for all people.
January’s statement is “I am made.” We believe that every child should know that he or she is fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14).
February’s statement is “I am precious.” Just like the song says, “[the children] are precious in His sight.” Cherry Street teaches the children that Jesus considers each one of them loveable and worthwhile.
March’s statement is “I am saved.” First and foremost, we teach each child that he or she can be saved by grace through Jesus Christ.
April’s statement is “I am light.” Each child at Cherry Street learns Jesus came to be the light of the world, but He has also commissioned all of us to be a light with Him.
May’s statement “I am able.” Cherry Street strives to show every child that he or she is capable and responsible.
Cherry Street Youth Center, Inc., is an Ecumenical Ministry formed to help develop children emotionally, spiritually, physically, and academically in the community.
In October, an anonymous donor pledged to give two dollars for every one dollar we received in November and December. The original goal was to raise $30,000 on or before December 31. The $30,000 goal was met on November 21, so the donor increased our goal to $50,000. We are thrilled to announce that we met that goal as well. In fact, you raised almost 75% of our annual budget in two months. Thank you for helping us meet our Christmas Challenge!
