Give Today to Help At-Risk Kids This Summer!

“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”  Matt 19:14

(To Give Now, Click on the Donate Button and under “Fund” Select Summer KIDS Camp — Camp Runs June 4 – July 28)

You probably know it’s a lot easier to impact a life when someone is young rather than waiting until they’re much older and serious problems have developed.

Fixing an entrenched problem later in life, while possible, is often extremely costly and there is no guarantee of success.

An ounce of prevention, as they say, is worth a pound of cure, and I sincerely believe that’s true.

In fact, that’s why I’m writing to you.

You are one of our most steadfast supporters – a person of faith who genuinely cares about others in need. You help us feed and care for the homeless and for that I’m grateful for the incredible impact you’ve made.

Today, I’m asking you to support our annual Summer KIDS Camp 2018 program.

This program is incredibly effective (over 1/2 to 3/4ths of a school year improvement in reading). It really makes a measurable difference in children’s lives – by addressing problems BEFORE they become more severe.

The goal of this Christ-centered program is to give at-risk kids a real chance at a bright future. Summer KIDS is an exceptional (see results!) program for at-risk children who are struggling with reading. I believe there is nothing quite like it in Tulsa.

We all know the current struggles of our public-school system and too many good kids are falling through the cracks!

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Together, we can make a difference now!

We’ve identified 100 at-risk kids grades K-4 who have fallen way behind in school and desperately need what SKC has to offer.

This is where you come in.

Your donation can make this a summer of fun and life changing OPPORTUNITY for these children! Give them a chance to grow their faith in a strong, Christian environment while helping them master a basic skill — reading. Let’s help these kids TODAY and not let fixable problems become debilitating later on!

Trusting in your prayerful generosity.

Steve Whitaker

President & Sr. Pastor
