When 9 year old José was given the opportunity to participate in an outing which one of our country churches provides at a park in their community each summer, his mother quickly returned his registration form in an envelope on which she wrote, “Thank you so much. I appreciate the chances you guys give José. I can’t really do much with him but you guys give him a chance.” (This mother loves her children dearly, but has health issues.)
LUMINA’s ministries with children have an impact on children and their parents alike.
Each Monday night during the school year, inner-city children gather for Kid’s Night in the fellowship hall at El Redentor & St. Paul’s UMC in Lancaster. We have Bible Stories, music, crafts, games, and refreshments - all in a caring Christian environment.
