Everyone’s Birthday is a Very Special Day!

The Unitarian Church in Lincoln NE sponsored a mass birthday celebration for children served by a local hunger relief and outreach center. Forty two children whose families are served by the Matt Talbot Kitchen and Outreach enjoyed cupcakes, pizza, party games and treats, clowns, as well as a professional comedy magic show. Each received a $10 gift card and a refurbished bicycle. The children of the church enjoyed hosted the event, with help from adult church members and several companies, agencies, and groups that donated generously to the day’s activities. The event was covered by the local media and that coverage inspired a local women’s circle to send the church a check for $240 for another party next year!

The church’s Religious Growth Director is engaging the children and youth of the church in several service activities, including volunteering at a local animal shelter and putting on a Hunger Banquet at the church.

These are wonderful ways to engage our children in activities to learn about social issues and live out our values!
