Kids Hope USA

Light of Christ has begun partnering with an exciting program called KIDS HOPE USA and with Delano Elementary. LOC members Lisa Spencer and Lona Jose will serve as co-directors of this amazing program. We will be recruiting our church members to be mentors who will provide one hour of mentoring to one child, one day a week at the elementary school during the school year. Delano Elementary staff will be selecting the students. The primary goal of this one hour is building a friendship relationship with the student. In addition, we will be asking for volunteers to be prayer partners with the mentors for each child. Recruiting will be starting shortly, and time spent with the volunteer’s assigned student will begin in late September. This very successful program has been helping kids for 25 years and is located in 40 states including MN. We look forward to talking with you about this and look forward to members of our congregation volunteering. More information including videos and handouts will be coming out soon to our congregation. You can also check out this highly recognized organization on their website,
