Children help church food pantry

| July 1, 2019

COSHOCTON – Abby McVey, 10, shows off the soup bag she made during New Life Ministries’ Yee Haw, Celebrating God’s Greatest Gift Bible School Weekend. The children decorated the bags and once the ingredients for soup were placed inside of them, they were donated to the church for its food pantry. About 30 kids, including preschool age children for the first time, attended the church’s program which was held Friday and Saturday evening, June 28-29 and wrapped up with a celebration on Sunday, June 30. “The look on their faces is the main reason why we do this,” said Kelly Treat, who organized the activities. “We get to have fun with a theme and teach the kids about Jesus. It also gives people from the church the chance to use their gifts for the Lord in a unique way.”
