Want to help?

If you live near by...

On there is a coupon for 50 cents off 2 Betty Crocker Potatoes and one for 50 or 75  cents off of Campbell’s 100 % Natural Soup and a 75 cents coupon for Hamburger Helper.  If some of you could print those it would be great.  You can print 2 off each computer.  When you want to print the second one you will have to go to the end of the coupons.  Could you print these for the MAC?
There is a sale at Kroger this week.  If you buy 5 selected General Mills products you get $5.00 coupon back for next order.  They say they will near free if I use the $5.00 coupon over and over.  I would be glad to shop for them, but need the coupons.  The sale is through Sunday (October 21st) so I need coupons by early Sunday at the latest.  You, of course, are welcome to help us out by buying some, but I would gladly use your coupons if you would rather I do the work.

We are getting ready for our Annual Thanksgiving and Christmas Giveaways and this would help greatly!  We need at 300 boxes of potatoes at the very least.  The other items will be used in our food pantry.  Thank you for helping out.

The more coupons the better, so tell your friends and bring in more if you can.

September Mission Team

Immanuel Baptist Church came to minister with us September 1, 2012.  They brought in a Family Mission Team.  The youngest was 4 years old and the oldest...well we won't go there:-)  They did a great job.  They cleaned, did small construction projects, organized, prepared crafts... They also did a Kid's Event in the evening, which included puppets, face painting, crafts, singing, games, prizes and dinner. Fun was had by all.
Thanks Immanuel Baptist for all you did.  

If you have a group that is interested in a day trip, weekend trip or a week long trip please contact us at the MAC.  We love to join with others to Meet Needs and Share Christ.

Need Help

We are looking for more people to help with our tutoring program.  It is held on Mondays from 6-7:30pm.  You would have the same child scheduled to be with you each week.  It is a great way to help them with their education.  It is a great way to mentor a child.  It is a great way to make a difference!

Back to School Day Giveaway 2012

At 1pm today everything will be done with the Back to School Day Giveaway.  I have one mom coming to pick up the kids shoes that we needed to get because we did not have ones that fit.

We had 172 kids and youth show up to get their new gym shoes, socks, and school supplies.  They also had the option of getting a haircut. 

The event went GREAT!  We had 39 volunteers overall on Saturday.  Three were providing water outside and some inside. Two greeters letting people in.  Three were some at our sign in table.  Eight gave out school supplies.  One did the socks.  Thirteen dealt with the shoes.  Four were helping the hairstylist with sign-in and cleanup.  There were 3 hairstylist (only place we really needed more).  Even had one volunteer up in the attic building shelves for any extras we can use later.  Then I got to just run around and talk to people and answer questions when needed:-) 

Thanks to all the volunteers who came out to help make this day a success.

Thanks to everyone who gave money and needed items to provide for these families.  You blessed a lot of lives on Saturday and I want you to know it is very much appreciated.

Purciville Baptist Church Mission Team from Virginia

There were 14 members of Purciville Baptist Church that arrived on Thursday, June 21st, to minister with us here at the MAC. They truly hit the ground running.  Today is their last full day of ministry.  They have provided the resources and the man power to put new flooring throughout the first level of the building (they laid all the tile themselves and a carpet crew is coming in on Friday to put carpet in the back room), new roof on a portion of our building (they provided materials and a member at South Side Baptist came in with his roofing crew to do the labor), removal of chimney and patchwork on roof, wall repairs (from water damage) throughout the building, junk removal and so much more.  They led the Sunday morning worship service at South Side Baptist.  A few of them helped out in the mornings at South Side Child Care - they were able to go in the classes and minister to the children and teachers.  They also did 2 Fun in the Sons - one from 1-2:30pm with the School Age Child Care Group from South Side and another from 6:30-8 for the community at 14th and Banklick.  It has been an amazing week to watch them work.  I praise God for connecting them with us to do service. 

Union Baptist Youth Group Mission Team

June 18-21 the Union Baptist Youth Group came over to Covington to help us put on a Fun in the Son.  They did a wonderful job each night sharing God's Love with each of the kids and youth in attendance.  There were 23 kids on Monday, 41 on Tuesday, 32 on Wednesday and 35 on Thursday.  Their night consisted of playing at the park, singing, Bible story, craft, snacks and recreation.  This is their 8th year doing Fun in the Son with us.  The kids have created relationships with each of the youth that really does change their lives.  Thank you Union Baptist for working with us at the MAC.

Kicks for Kids

Kicks for Kids does a great job of helping us to love on the children and youth in our programs. They provide opportunities that we could not do on our own. Once a year they have a River Run that helps to raise money for their program. I would like to invite you to join me in this event. Please let me know if you are interested and if you would like to be a part of the MAC team. It is scheduled for May 26. Registration is $15.
