Kidwise Service & Family Event

Family Life Presents a Kidwise Service & Family Fellowship Event on Saturday, December 15th during Kidwise and after church.  This event will take place in the Holy Cross cafeteria and gym.  This event is so epic, you will not want to miss it:-) 


Service project- 
we will be packing backpacks full of food for all 341 of the students at Bloomingdale Elementary located on Orchard St. (near Wells St.).  Bloomingdale Elementary is an inner city school that serves lower income students.  A Fort Wayne business is graciously donating the food for kids at Bloomingdale to enjoy over their holiday break.  We need lots of volunteers to set up for this project.  If you can help, please let Tama Brenneke (739-6504 or tbrenneke@holycrossfw.org) know.  


Fellowship Event- 
after Kidwise & church that evening, we will have food and fellowship in the cafeteria.  We will be decorating Christmas cookies, making a Christmas craft, playing Christmas BINGO with prizes, and if you like dodge ball we will have that available in the gym.  I hope your family will join us!
