VBS Kids Raise $740 for Mission Project

The United Methodist Church here in Oklahoma has for many years provided a home for children and youth, who for whatever reason could no longer live at home with their parents, grandparents or guardians.  We operated a Children's Home in Tahlequah, a Boy's Ranch in Gore, and the Francis Willard home in Tulsa for females.  Recently the Circle of Care has been changing its mission and working with foster children here in our great state.  In a wonderful new mission, the Circle of Care has been providing homes for siblings who are in the foster care system, so that the brothers and sisters could stay together.

The Boy's Ranch in Gore is being adapted and changed to sibling homes and our pastor challenged the children of our VBS to raise money to help with that transition.  The goal was $500 but our school age children (along with some helpful adults) exceeded that goal and raised $750.  Great job kids!!!!  Proud of you!
