This month, we hosted our first newly-formatted Event Hope at the Den! If you attended our volunteer meeting at our last event, you’ll remember that Event Hope is changing this year. Instead of meeting once a month at Evangelical Covenant Church, we are trying out a bimonthly program for children from specific, strategic areas of Springfield! Events will still take place on Saturdays! We are hosting kids at the Hope for Kids Den (40 Front Street in Indian Orchard) for a pancake breakfast, Bible lesson, games and relationship-building small group time. We have tested out this 2-hour program model through our Tuesday night Club Hope program and it has been amazing!
Thank you so much to our amazing volunteers for welcoming our first wave of kids from the North End to our very first Event Hope at the Den, making an amazing breakfast, and being the hands and feet of Jesus to these children this weekend. The event was a huge success and the kids all loved it so much! See you on January 26 for our second event with kids from another area of Springfield!
