Hurting Hearts and Helping Hands helps children learn about Haiti before and after the devastating earthquake in January 2010. Children hear stories and learn songs from Haiti, make mud cookies, take an imaginary boat trip and play games, while connecting Christ's command to help and serve others.
This cycle includes a wealth of links to resources, a list of fundraising ideas and Haitian recipes to help you plan a Haitian feast and involve the whole congregation. An expanded list of recipes and fundraising ideas and more lessons are included in "Hope for Haiti" -- a resource packet designed to help congregations raise funds to rebuild the Holy Trinity Cathedral complex or other nonprofit of your choice. Appropriate for K-5th Grade.
Each WorkshopCycle unit includes seven workshops:
- Story & Games
- Drama & Activity
- Kitchen (food-related, but doesn't always need an actual kitchen)
- Publishing (Computer & non-Computer options)
pay one low annual fee to access to ALL units.
Use for Sunday School, VBS or special events --- a great way to stretch your budget!!
You can purchase cycles individually or purchase an annual congregational membership. Congregational members get access to all cycles and can download as many as are needed in a given year. You can download a cycle and if it turns out that you don't want to use that one, just download a different cycle without wasting the cost of a cycle you don't use. Plus, you can use cycles for special occasions (Christmas, Lent, etc.) and they are great for a VBS or Summer Camp program as well as Winter Camp, which is a growing trend in churches today -- the week after Christmas when parents need child care and children are eager have fun and learn.
Annual Memberships are VERY affordable!
