Help Provide “Change for Children” this Spring
By Rob Heaton, Miriam Project Student Assistant
Spring is a season to intentionally celebrate our own mothers and fathers. Though Mother’s Day and Fathers’ Day have become Hallmark holidays to many, these days do remain special for all who truly cherish the impact of their parents — or parental figures — in their lives.
At the same time, the Miriam Project invites you this spring to consider children in need of loving, committed motherly and fatherly figures. Consider also those couples who are ready to open their hearts and their home to a child through adoption. These children and these parents-to-be are all hoping for change, and this spring, you can provide it through Change for Children.
This Mother’s Day ( Sunday, May 8 ) in all services at Madison Park Church of God, ushers will hand out our designated bottles, like those in the photograph above, to families exiting the auditorium. Between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, we are asking you to collect your spare change in our bottles as you go about your daily life! Return the bottle full of change on Father’s Day ( Sunday, June 19 ), and all proceeds will benefit the Miriam Project in service of children, birth parents and adoptive families.
If you are unable to attend services this Sunday but would still like a bottle to collect your change in, please contact the Miriam Project by phone or email after Mother’s Day to check on availability and set up good time to pick up a bottle. If you would like to give to the Miriam Project’s ministry more immediately, please check out our Donate page.
This spring, your change will help change children’s lives with the Miriam Project.
