Grace Community Church in Bellevue will be involved in a worldwide mission project called Operation Kid-to-KidÂ. For this project, children attending GraceÂs Serengeti Trek vacation Bible school will provide school supply kits for needy children in Africa.
Operation Kid-to-Kid will show kids that with GodÂs help, they can impact their world. Each child will be responsible for bringing one or two specific school supply items, such as steno pads, crayons, a pencil sharpener, or a ruler. Then small groups of children, called Safari Crews, will gather their items to create identical school supply kits. The kits will be shipped to World Vision, an international relief organization, who will distribute them to children in Africa.
Because of childrenÂs generosity, Operation Kid-to-Kid has grown to become one of the worldÂs largest global outreach of children serving children.
Past Operation Kid-to-Kid programs have allowed over a million children in North America to send hundreds of thousands of hygiene items, Spanish Bible materials, and shoes and socks to children around the world. (For more information about Operation Kid-to-Kid, visit http://www.ok2k.org.)
Operation Kid-to-Kid is just one part of Serengeti Trek! Serengeti Trek begins July 25th and continues through July 28. ItÂs located at Grace community Church, 121 107th Avenue NE, Bellevue. The event each day is from 9:00 AM until Noon. For more information, call 425-637-7729 or visit http://www.gracebellevue.org.
