Seven children and a teenage helper participated in this summer’s “Kids With God” outreach program, a new ministry at Hazel United Methodist Church in Hazel, Kentucky.

The ministry received its funding from individual and church donations and a $500 grant from the Memphis Conference “Churches Reaching Neighbors” grant program.

“We had a diverse representation of children: 3 black, 2 Hispanic and 2 white, all getting along and learning about God. We hope and expect these numbers will grow,” reported Rev. April Arnold, the church’s pastor.
All of the children received Deep Blue children's Bibles purchased from Cokesbury Bookstore.
