City of Angels – July Update

COA_Logo

One of our angels put this quote by Muhammad Ali on her Facebook page and I decided it needed to be shared: We all have the same God, we just serve him differently. Rivers, lakes, ponds, streams, oceans all have different names, but they all contain water. So do religions have different names, and they all contain truth expressed in different ways, forms, and times. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a Muslim, a Christian, or a Jew. When you believe in God, you should believe that all people are part of a family. If you love God, you can’t love only some of his children.❤

Thank you for loving the children of the Kings Center. Thank you for showing that love through your cards, your prayers, your gifts and your resources. Because of your faithfulness, our children are thriving this summer. The breakfast/lunch program is going well. The children are enjoying weekly trips to the Grand Theatre and participating in the Summer Reading Program. Thanks to AETNA, Marian Hayden & family, and Debbie Brown & family, the children have planted the milkweed in one of our raised beds to feed the caterpillars. Some have already witnessed the emergence of a butterfly! What a beautiful reminder of redemption and second chances!😇

A special SHOUT OUT to: Rhonda Deaton, Sandy Deaton, Rosie Doerting, Mary Pat Hankla, Anne Hilen, Paula Miller, Nancy Osborne, Brenda Rue,  Kindra Stark,  Margaret Townsley, & Judy Zeigler. These angels went above and beyond to help make the Benefit Dinner a success! I thank God for your willingness to give your time and energy! I also thank all other angels who came to the dinner or who supported it with a donation. Your generosity is a blessing.👑

AND now for the part of my job that I don’t like….asking for money.🤔 So far this year I have only received three sponsorship checks. I haven’t been particularly worried since most of you paid your sponsorship w/your school supplies money in July. The COA funds are separate from the KC funds and we will need to replenish them soon so we can continue to pay for fieldtrips. If possible, could you send your sponsorship ($60) and your school supplies ($20) sometime this month? I will need to shop for the supplies by July 25 so I can have them ready before school starts on August 1st. Of course, you are always welcome to buy the supplies for your child and leave them in the gray bin at the Wesley Center. Just let me know you are going to do that!

In a time when our country seems rife with anger & hostility, I’m so thankful that our children are reminded that people in our community LOVE them! Thank you for the difference you are making!💞 Kay Scott  502-395-1516
