Summer Fun at Cherry Street

Summer Time Fun!

We are in full swing for our summer program! We are welcoming 60 children each day. We have attended 2 VBS sessions; one with 1st UMC and the other with the 1st Baptist Church. We are participating in swimming lessons, offering classes in Gardening, reading and math enrichment, physical education, and a variety of other fun opportunity for the children. We are also planning a few field trips! We have partnered with USD 413 to help with transportation for this summer. We are also partnering with the Chanute Rec. Center to provide a nutritious snack each day to EVERY child (ages 1– 19) at the pool as part of our expanded Summer Food Service Program. All of this is provided FREE to the children of Chanute! Please pray for the success of our goal of expanding our program to reach more children. We have faith that the additional financial needs to expand will be provided for, as always, by our Heavenly Father through our amazing supporters of our Cherry Street ministry!

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.”

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 business partners and their customers that helped contribute to our “Hands and Feet” fundraising campaign.
