K..I.N. - Response

Jason Thompson, a great friend, fellow pastor, and all-around good guy (who needs to update his blog) came up with a great idea over the weekend. He leads our Upward Basketball and Cheerleading program at NMC. Every Saturday, January-March, the parents, grandparents, and siblings of 450 k-6th graders are present to watch the games. We have concessions available at those games.

So back to Jason's idea. He and the Upward team made the decision to donate all proceeds from concessions last Saturday to Haiti Earthquake Relief through WorldHelp. They ended up giving $754 for aid.

His initiative to step up and do something got us all thinking at NMC Student Ministries, especially thinking of our initiative to seriously address Kids In Need this year. We RARELY take an offering on Wednesday Nights in our Preteen, Junior High, and Senior High program. This Wednesday, we're making an exception.
If you are an NMC Student reading, consider if you would be willing to give from your "plenty" to help those in desperate need.
