We have concluded another wonderful Kids’ Club Summertime! We took the kids on many adventure trips including the Children’s Science Museum, Harkins Theater, Pops in Arcadia, Myriad Gardens, and a spray park. Thank you to all of our donors and volunteers who made this summer happen!

Kid’s Club Summertime 2017 has kicked off! The kids have enjoyed learning, eating, playing together in the gym, making passports, and learning about the country of Mexico! Each week we will learn about a new country… up next is Brazil and Japan!

This year, we had the opportunity to provide 100 backpacks with school supplies to kids in our community, as well as open our Abundance Apparel closet for each child to select a new outfit to go back to school in. Our kids looked great on their first day in their new outfits and colorful backpacks! Thank you to all who gave generously to make it possible!

Another Summertime Adventure Trip in the books, and this time our kiddos took a trip downtown! First they got to see Transylvania 2 at the Harkins Theatre, and then spent the rest of the afternoon at the Myriad Gardens playground and splash park!! Such a great day with great kids.

This past week we took our annual Summertime Adventure Trip out to Arcadia for some fun at Pops, and then headed to our favorite spray park for some fun in the sun! This trip is a favorite for the staff and kiddos, and this year was no different!! What a blessing it is to have a day to just play 🙂

Thank you to OKC First Church of the Nazarene for inviting Kids’ Club to be involved at VBS! Our kids had a great time and loved getting to play games, do crafts, dance, sing, and race their own wooden cars!

Couldn’t have imagined a more fun time for our Adventure Trip last week! Most of our kids had their very first golfing experience! What a great opportunity to try something new. Looking forward to more Adventure Trips before the summer’s end!

What a fun last day of Kids’ Club Afterschool for the year! Our luau was a hit, and our kiddos are ready for summer programs to begin in June!

We had an incredible night at the We Are One Benefit on Friday, April 22! THANK YOU to all who attended Our Neighborhood Empowered’s We Are One Benefit! We are so excited to have established so many new partners in prayer and support through the evening’s program.

We want to take the opportunity to send shout-outs to some key people that made the night possible! Thank you to our Event Committee, the ONE Board of Directors, to all of our speakers including Pastor Mike Laughlin, Principal Lee Roland, our Board President Teri Inman, and Pastor Jon Middendorf. Thank you to Zach Lucero for running A/V, making our testimonial video and taking pictures, to Taylor Middendorf for also taking pictures, and to Jim Smith for providing ONE car decals for all in attendance! Finally, thank you to Donn Cross for providing the food. We couldn’t have pulled off such a successful event without these wonderful individuals!
