Children’s Chapel

Heifer Project

 

 

 

Rabbits Are In!

 

The St. John’s kids in Children’s Chapel held their own election in the fall and the rabbits received the nod for animal of the year.  We will send our Chapel collection to Heifer International in May but we wanted to give everyone a chance to give. 

 

According to Heifer International, rabbits multiply rapidly making them a low cost high yield way to help impoverished families increase their income.  Also, rabbits are easy to care for, require only simple food and produce manure that can be applied to gardens without composting, immediately boosting crop productivity.

 

If you would like to help us send more rabbits around the world place a donation in the plate and earmark it ‘Children’s Chapel’ or ‘rabbits’ and we will take care of the rest.  A trio of Rabbits is $ 60 but any donation is appreciated.

 

We’ve raised over $300.00 and many of our kids are sacrificing the contents of their piggy banks to help a child somewhere who needs the basic things of life, like food and clean water.  We give from our abundance with thanksgiving for all that God has given us.  Join us and get ready for a blessing!
